Our Homestay In Amsterdam

THE HOST CAME TO PICK US UP FROM SCHIPHOL AIRPORT FOR 25 EURO EXTRA BESIDES the one night stay in Amsterdam North and drove a fifteen minutes drive to his homestay apartment... 
It was quite out of town and we didn't mind a bit cos we would be departing the very next morning....
Very nice and quiet area where we put up the night.....
This was where we stayed.... Residential area...
This is the living hall... Oh, there are bedrooms but unfortunately they are on the first level..
I have a problem here... I couldn't hop up all the way because the stairs were narrow and spiraled...
Ended up using my backside to go up and down, safer that way but ended up "mopping" his stairs instead...
Inconvenience #1.... For the disabled 
Inconvenience #2.... There is no toilet upstairs, just a bathroom and the toilet is downstairs....
So either I sleep upstairs and restrain from going to the toilet or sleep downstairs on the sofa.... Sigh....
Aaron and my friend walked 15 minutes to the mall cos the one not abled was very tired....
My friend at work in the kitchen....
Lunch was instant noodles with spinach and egg soup!!
Oh, meatballs were not left out..... Yummsss....
And some hours later..... Dinner!!
Marinated spareribs and meatballs....
Plus roasted chicken wings... Ten pieces in total but only two left when I suddenly remember to take this picture... That shows how hungry we were then!
Took an evening walk after dinner at the park to relax our tummies... 
A lonely bird was there.....
By six pm, it was already turning dark... 
We made our way back to the house after a short walk...
And we had a good night sleep .... Downstairs at the living hall.... 
Both of them sacrificed the beds to sleep with me on sofas and on the floor....
So touched...so loved... Thank you.... Love you both!!!

  1. So nice to see clear blue sky and autumn coloured leaves in your photos. Over here the haze is terrible, some days couldn't even see the sun. Both lunch and dinner looks yummy. True love is about making sacrifices. So where is your next destination?

  2. I prefer remaining downstairs, since the toilet is downstairs, and no need to climb up & down.. And it's just for a night right.. Dinner is a lot for 3 people wor - noodles with soup, meatballs, chicken wings, ribs.. Wah, nice..

  12. What a loving and understanding people for sleeping with you below. You are God's favourite and he sent angles to keep you happy! You were so funny to mop the steps with your back! Funny lady!
