Looks like great fun, I love Amsterdam always have a brilliant time there. I can sympathise with the lappy problem too mine is poorly and I am getting very nervy about the amount of stuff on it...lol...xx

Thanks Rick yeah we had a great time.
I would personally recommend ALL aspects of Amsterdam to anyone, hope you get over there one day mate!


Yeah thanks Em, Amsterdam is wonderful isn't it?
Yeah I wish I'd put a lot more stuff on my ext hard drive, having one by the way is so useful in terms of what you can store on them and they'll plug in to any comp with a usb port! Reduces that twitchiness hey?

Jules said...

Take me next time? :O

Varekai looks AMAZING!!!! I can totally see your attraction to Cirque... and to Amsterdam. Gorgeous place, that is!!

EBEZP said...

Too right Jules!!! Yeah Amsterdam is amazing!!
Varekai in my opinion is the best of the touring shows and we had to wait 5 years for it to come to Europe so we weren't going to miss that!!

I saw it here for the first time in San Diego this past February. I was SO impressed, amazed, in awe and speechless. I never knew bodies could bend that much and I used to be a gymnast too!

Thanks for posting the video ;o)

Including the five resident shows in Vegas last year Varekai in Amsterdam makes 9 shows me and my son hasve seen. All different of course and all fantastic!!
Thanks Jillie it was my pleasure.
