After a little bit less than a year I touched Dutch soil again being "in transit" to Kuala Lumpur. When the arrival hall door of Schiphol airport slid open I saw my little niece and my sister again. We payed an unannounced visit to my parents and my mom nearly got a heart attack when I walked in. It was really nice to see family and friends again after such a long time. My niece Heleen stayed over at my house and together we watched Ice Age 4, the continental drift and we ate lots of potato chips. Holland was like Ice Age to me with temperatures below freezing and more than 5 inches of snow. Because of the snow I nearly missed my flight to Kuala Lumpur. Busses and trains had huge delays and I arrived at the airport only half an hour before take off. I was the last one to check in, just in time to continue my trip in Asia.
