Agrias - he showed you the biiig "The Game" sign which, alone, should be worth the trip!!!
Although I think that Amsterdam is a place you must've visited once in your life. I visited it a couple of times now, one to just be there and the other time's were for business purposes.
I've never been to Delft, Den Haag and Leuven before, I've been through it.. You know, with the train and all, but I've never visited them properly.
Didn't you go to Maastricht or Utrecht? Both worth visiting too.
I can see how you get tired of the sun though. People tend to want something different than what they got. Me for example, I'd rather have sun as I get tired of the winter in Norway. Snow is fine, but 2 months is enough, then I want summer again. That's why I love Portugal (where my father lives) as it's sunny, hot and well, it's what I'm made for. Not this cold snowy country
I have a love/hate relation to winter I guess. Skiing is alot of fun, easily the best part of winter.
I wanted to visit more places, but time was short..
(trying to pronounce "Utrecht" was a lot of fun though (and embarassment too <.<).
In my city, it never gets under 23ºc (and that's considered cold weather here, usual stuff is 27~30ºc, during summer a bit more). I guess you have to live here to understand how annoying it is (at least for those like me, that aren't fond of beaches...the rest doesn't seem to mind... T___T). The most ridiculous part...here people sometimes refer to summer as "winter", you know why? Because it rains a lot, and those usual 5 precious minutes of water falling from the sky are considered "cold weather". >.>'
And I loved the cold weather, even when I was suffering. xD I'm so envious of you guys now. :~
Portugal hm? Go to the portuguese thread to put this portuguese in use with us for a change. :3
You should try "Scheveningen" then. Back in World War II the dutch used it to recognize German (or other foreign) infiltrants and such.
Even I can't pronounce it like it should been. But then again, I'm not 100% dutch.
Haha, I'm horrible at writing portuguese Agrias
I never learned to write the language, so the little I know I basically learned from reading subtitled movies/series in Portugal aswell as reading some articles there in the newsparers. I can write abit, but it's often horrible, haha. I understand most writing though as long as it's not too complicated. I grew up there, but moved before starting at school, so I never had any portuguese education.
Well I can understand you somewhat I guess as I lived in Portugal. It's pretty damn hot there too. Though it's not as hot as Brazil, it often drops down to 10ºc in the winter. But in Norway it's completely different. Sometimes it rains ALOT, and honestly it sucks. You don't go outside because you get too soaked, it's horrible. And snow is fine, but I think 2 months is more than enough
The perfect year would be if one could have summer for 4 months > instant change to snowy winter for 2 months > Summer 4 months > Snowy winter 2 months. It would be a year full of great variation
What language can you speak fluently? And which one you can write as well?
I was kinda pointing to the year 2009 in general, which had an awful lot of rain pour down on our country. I really do hate rain!
Agrias, how likely is it that you'll make another trip like this next year, or in the end of this year?
Being that I'll still be paying for the last one until july at least, I don't think I'll be able to travel again for a looooong time, unless I suddenly get rich, get a scholarship or find a job abroad. ;_;
Write...Portuguese. >.> I thought I wrote in english quite ok, but Khal and ttx and Xophien made sure to prove me wrong when I asked for help. T_T
I was trying to learn German, but dunno if I'll continue. I sucked hard. -_-

Ouch, that sounds harsh! :/ But I can imagine it wasn't really cheap going to Europe, and then traveling all around it too... I take it as you can't study in Europe either now?
And I missed you lot in gothenburg too... no excuse is worthy that...
The study thing is as hard as before, I need monies or a scholarship...I'm working on both possibilities >.> Never give up~
Agrias, I may have asked this before but where do you get your avatar/icons?
The girl you use is always so cute.
Do you draw her yourself?
