Netherlands To Switzerland

[mappress mapid="12"]

If you haven't heard, the day after Christmas I'm headed off to Europe.  This will be my fourth Eurotrip (one, two, and three) and I can't wait to go explore this amazing part of the world again.  This time I'm starting on a direct flight from Portland to Amsterdam that I scored for cheap and reining in the New Year with Melissa, Tomas, Ayleen and more.  After the New Year, I'm eventually making my way down to visit my friend Laurent in Lausanne, Switzerland before flying home.  My plans are pretty loose, as is the way I usually travel, so I'm excited to see how the trip comes together.  With the help of the travel hacking work I've done in the past and my friends in Europe, I'm hoping to keep my trip quite low on cost.  I'm going to be updating this post with my trip details as best as I can, so bookmark this page and stay updated. Belgium(I ended up splitting off and Switzerland into their own posts.)
