Amsterdam is my brother-in-law’s favorite city, so of course we had to hit it up after Germany.
My mind was blown when I saw the city. It’s so unique!
The architecture is absolutely incredible, and the vibe of the city was really laid back (and I’m not talking about the pot). Oh and the food……well lets just say my pants were slightly tighter by the time I left.
We spent most of our time walking along the canals and taking in the beautiful and unique architecture.
We also rented bikes for the day and rode through town before jumping on the ferry and riding the paths around the countryside.
*Word of caution* If you do choose to ride a bike, be sure to keep up with the flow of traffic. We got yelled at by 2 women because we were riding too slow.
Unfortunately I did not get to visit the Van Gogh museum (my favorite artist). Now I know to book tickets ahead of time.
We did get to see Rembrandt’s house and the Anne Frank house though. My sis and brother-in-law were awesome enough to get up early and grab a place in line before the Anne Frank house opened.
Since my friend and I couldn’t go to the Van Gogh museum, we walked around the nearby gardens and then watched 3 break dancers perform in front of the I Am Amsterdam sign.
I was sad to leave Amsterdam after such a short stay….even though my wallet and waistline were more than ready to go.
Since my sister and brother-in-law are planning on visiting Amsterdam at least once a year, I’m sure I will be back soon.
