Hello Blue Demons Fans,

As we approach September and the beginning of another exciting school year, many DePaul athletes go through their preseason in preparation for this fall. Golf, however, has been in season all summer so we are excited to begin our fall season.

A couple of weekends ago I visited, Jan-Willem Feilzer and Sten Leusink in their hometown of Amsterdam! Both Jan and Sten are sophomores on our tennis team.

Amsterdam is about 600 kilometers or 370 miles southwest of my hometown of Kiel, Germany. The trip took me about seven hours with the train but it was totally worth it!

Not only did I get to see Jan and Sten but also my friends from the DePaul softball team, who were in Amsterdam playing a couple games after completing their St. Vincent de Paul tour. Besides seeing the softball team, I got to see a beautiful city which boasts some very interesting history and culture.

While in Amsterdam, we checked out the Van Gogh Museum took a boat tour through Amsterdam's canal system. Both experiences were fascinating and a lot of fun.

This will be my last blog entry from overseas and really enjoyed reporting in from Germany!

I look forward to seeing everyone soon when I return to Chicago!

Go Blue!!!
