Remember a few weeks ago when I told you that London was just a pass-through to our final destination? Well, we were headed to Amsterdam! And friends, I kid you not, it was ten times better than what I had hoped.
The truth is, I had a few preconceived notions when it came to the city. I had heard of the famed Red Light District and the loose drug policies. And those ideas, well they lead me to believe that the city may be a little edgy -- dare I say dirty?
I was wrong. It turns out the Amsterdam is clean, beautiful and so hospitable that I can't wait to return. The colors, architecture, people ...all amazing. Did I mention top-notch museums and a lively cafe scene? Five days in Amsterdam was all that was needed to bump it to the top of my favorites list. Are you on edge? Don't be. Go and thank me later. Just remember to message me if you do.
Take a peek at my first day in the city and stay tuned for windmills, bike rides and the countryside.
