In August of 2005, I went on a trip to Germany, The Netherlands, and Belgium. I toured these countries for a full month with a friend who lives in Germany. I saw many interesting things and had many enjoyable experiences as I travelled. This blog is a travelogue of my entire trip, complete with text, photos, and video.
