Europe: Days 1-15

Won a sweepstakes for a free monthlong trip to Europe for you and your 4 closest friends, so to make some extra spending money we put a band together and made up some songs and played a buncha shows with a band called White Lies in many old European theatres for many European teenagers and/or their European parents and the rest of the time did this:

Day 1: Amsterdam. Killing time until it gets dark so we can go to sleep.

Day 2: Driving to Eindhoven. First show. Late.

Day 3: Paradiso, Amsterdam. Still trying to learn songs.

Day 4: Jail, Rotterdam. This was where we figured out that we don't like putting sheets on our own beds.

Day 5: Dan makes a friend in Alkmaar (celebrating 750 years!)

Our picnic in Alkmaar. Thanks to the fine folks at Subway.

Day 6: Teylers Museum, Haarlem. Working hard.

(see above)

St. Bavo's Cathedral, Haarlem. 10-year old Mozart played that organ. So did Handel, except he wasn't 10.

Day 7: Brugge (Bruges). Frites'ed up before we even left the train station.

Brugge Cruise

Day 8: de Noordzee in Oostende, where Marvin Gaye wrote "Sexual Healing." You can see why.

French hackin', outside McDonald's, somewhere in Picardie (look closely).

Day 9: us in like 5 years.

Day 10: Paris. Tim thought the housekeeper stole his iPod. Turns out she didn't.

Day 11: Cimetière du Père-Lachaise, Paris, home of Jim.

Day 12: previously documented here

Day 13: Luxembourg

Day 14

Halloween in Luxembourg

Love the photos, it's very cool to document in a personal way as you have done. It's interesting. Did Marvin Gaye really write "Sexual Healing" on that beach?

I was in Luxembourg for Halloween and so remember seeing that Dracula costume-wig, while having a laugh induced tear.

God, you made my day.
