I am planning a trip to Amsterdam in mid September to take in the canals, culture, food and boat building. My plan is to cruise the canals, take great photographs, visit a few boat yards and restorations, go to my family distillery and take in the sites and sounds of this great port city of Europe.

Was wondering if there was any interest in joining me on this first portion of my European adventure. I promise you it will be a memorable, affordable and fun trip. Hope some of you will join me.

Ted I love you to bits mate, but just to be clear, are you just getting a bunch of mates together, or are you promoting a business venture here? Hope you don't mind me asking, because it's a bit confusing.

:):):) I'm sure it will be a blast. I liked the suggestion you posted a while ago about buying a BMW in Europe, do a tour and bring it home.

I have never forgotten you Phil. I have plans if not with this one then another with you.

I have another crazy idea in that same vein - most likely set in motion next spring. How about sending 1 to 3 older BMW motorcycles to Germany for an european riding tour. I figure the cost is about 1 week of rental but you get a classic ride for as long as you want and a good chance to hang out with me. With my great travel connections, friends abroad and undying enthusiasm - folks like us would have a wonderful time on a economical dollar seeing things we all would be interested in. :):)

Don't try drinking the #9. A failure in flavor.|;)

Sounds cool.
My wife has organised a trip to Cambodia for us and a bunch of friends in August. That will have to do for now.
