          Well appointed hotel outside main part of Amsterdam (you need to access public transport to get around which was easy to find / navigate). Rooms very 'modern' with glass partitioning between bathroom / toilet & main lounge (if you never got the lighting right you will see a lot of your room mate!). Upstairs bed - rather steep. Lovely bar and food.

          With great relief, the boat was where it should be. Externally the boat is one of those things " a blind man would be happy to see". More functional than pretty.
          We were early but they were well organised and our room was ready. We're lucky the room is about midway down one of those interminable corridors that cruise ships have but there is ...

          ... we agreed to meet at the train station at 5pm the next day. On the morning of the 9th, I set out for the Anne Frank house. However, I was not alone. I got off the tram and saw a tremendously long line that wound in and out of the streets and looped around entire buildings. Come to find out, tickets had been booked out for the next two months and there was a slim chance I would even get through the line before it closed in the afternoon. It was my last day in Holland and ...

I then took a short stroll along the river to see the equally bustling flower market (Bloemenmarkt) before finding myself at the rather prominent Rijksmuseum through the tunnel of which leads you to another famous area of the city known as Museumplein with the big I Amsterdam letters and Kaws statues. Definitely worth ...

          On my way to a picnic at Vondelpark a classmate and I had to constantly weave our way through vehicles whose drivers frequently ignored the bicycle lanes which were just a painted lines on the road in some areas. In Detroit, we also have bike lanes that are painted lines on ...

          ... into their beer, the Heineken horses, and watch a little interactive video that showed how they make the beer. I think the end was my favorite part. Included in the price of your entry to the Heineken Experience is a Heineken wristband with two tokens for the end of the tour. You can use the two tokens to get two glasses of beer, or put them towards learning how to pour a perfect glass of Heineken that you keep, and you get a little certificate that has your name ...
