In the interest of not lugging a bunch of bs around during my weird 2-day international journey back to the US and avoiding possibly life threatening luggage fees on one particular short flight, I sent a box of things back to the US from Amsterdam. The Dutch post will deal with up to 20 kilos (44 pounds) of your junk at a fairly reasonable price (half of what said short flight could have potentially charged me) so I bit. I carefully packed in less valuable but still important items into a Verhuisdoos ("Moving box" and for any of you who do Deutsch you can see just how funny Dutch is: "Verhausungsdose" instead of "Umzugskarton" anyone? Hahaha) and taped that biznass up. I even put the Dutch xmas treats I was planning to dole out in there, having great faith in the postal system. Two packages I'd sent previously arrived in 7 business days! Even the guy at the counter I mailed it from assured me it would be 1-1.5 weeks tops. L-I-A-R! It arrived WEDNESDAY JANUARY 12th! One month and one day after sending it. But you know what? It arrived and I am glad to have my vintage dresses, shitty shoes and llama yarn back. You can look forward to Dutch treats for Xmas NEXT YEAR, everyone.
