EUROPE!!!


friends.
In case you didn't know we are in Europe. Its pretty much the coolest place in the world, its been like a dream come true for us. The people are all so nice and they all speak English as good as we do, we are having a blast. To get here we took an 11 hour flight from Portland to Frankfurt Germany where we jumped in a van and drove almost 4 hours to Holland, there we spent the first three days in a town called Deventer (one of the oldest towns in Holland) near there was a festival called Flevo there where we played two times. All the people at the festival were amazing they were so receptive of us even though we are pretty much unknown here.
After the festival we rented out own van and drove to a little town called Westbroek where we are staying now.
The US Dollar is really weak against the Euro right, one dollar = about 60 Euro cents. and things are priced high too, a bottle of water is 2 euro which is around 3 dollars. Gas is 1.60Euro/liter which translates to 8.88 dollars/gallon. it costs alot to do anything so we are being very wise with our money.
We have one more day in Holland then we are going to England, its going to be "fun" trying to drive on the wrong side of the road and find out way around.
I'll try and send more updates and pictures during our trip but it can be difficult getting internet access over here.
I've posted a few pictures. its beautiful here.

love
