Here I am in Amsterdam!
One of my missions while in Amsterdam was to eat at Dunkin Donuts. I was surprised to see how fancy the donuts are.
We went to a place called the Cheese Museum, where you can freely sample all different kinds of cheeses. It was heaven.
My friend took me on the commuter ferry at night so I could see a different view of the city. 🙂 It was lovely.
My friend claims I made her walk through the red light district twelve times a day. (She is exaggerating somewhat.) In my defense, the red light district is centrally located and we had to cut through it to get to other places. 😉 Riiiiight …
Thoughts and observations about Amsterdam …
- Like Sweden, bikes are EVERYWHERE! Be careful when you are crossing the street.
- Getting to the city center from the airport is super easy via train and only costs around 5 Euro.
- The Anne Frank Museum (see: Monday’s post) sells out weeks in advance, so plan way ahead if you want to visit.
Side note: I visited both the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum, but found myself wanting to just absorb everything and not be concerned with taking photos. I think I saw most of Van Gogh, but the Rijksmuseum is huge! I could return and see things I didn’t on my first trip.
