Day 1-2: Friday & Saturday, September 8-9

The Journey Begins

Well, here goes my attempt at a small photo blog of our visit to Amsterdam. Depending on how exhausted we are at the end of a day here, we’ll attempt to upload a few highlights of the day in photo and words.

We departed Toronto Pearson at 8:45PM on Air Canada. What a fantastic flight to Amsterdam! It was especially sweet as had won a “bid” with Air Canada to upgrade our economy seats to Business/First Class so this was truly a (most likely to be) once-in-a-lifetime experience. What a way to go!

First stop: Free food and drinks in the Maple Leaf Lounge at Pearson:

Now, on to the flight:

  1. Loving your pic and blog, had to share with Sandra. As usual the pic put a grin on my face, thank you my friend for sharing your experience with me through the eyes of your lens. Say hello to Vince.
