Today, Dara and I got up early and went to the Meer Market (the town supermarket) and we got some food for the weekend. There are no meals this weekend, so we have to stock up! Then, we ate brunch in our room. After this, we took the bus to Venlo, a town 45 minutes away. When we got there, we found the Limburg Museum. We were hoping to find some cool artifacts from the Castle, but there wasn’t much there. We saw some old portraits of the Royal family who lived here, but other than that, it was a waste of three Euros!

After that experience, we walked around the town. It was really warm out, and there were so many people. Everywhere we turned, there were people. It was crazy. We did some shopping, and a lot of window shopping. With about 10 Euros left until we leave, window shopping was a good idea.

On the way back to Well, we saw a few castle guys get on the bus too. They had come all the way to Venlo to buy beer, because apparently, if you buy a lot of beer in Well, the people call the Castle to warn the administration. That’s sad.  And, on the way back, there was road construction, and it took us an hour and 45 minutes to get back. It sucked. But we made it.

For the rest of the night, we just relaxed around the castle, ate dinner in the room, and played Scrabble online. (Its fun, you should all try it!) I don’t think I’ve won a game yet!
