After traveling for so long it was fabulous to be staying in a hotel with comfy beds and our own bathroom! This hotel was great, clean, great service and a yum breakfast. The only downside was it was a bit out of the city, easily fixed as a tram stop just outside went straight there very often!

It is time to bid 'tot ziens' to Amsterdam; loved your frites, apple pie, kroketten (very good soup in a fry), herring (tastes better than it looks) and cheese.

Apparently, he was riding the wrong direction and another guy hit him straight ...
... the chilly streets a little before stopping into a coffee shop and bar. We turned in early to make sure we were well rested for our long days ahead! Friday: Today, we got a early start because we wanted to assure that we would be able to get into Anne Franks House. We got up at 7 to make sure that we would be in the front of the line. Little did we know, however, that it actually opens at 9, not 8 like we thought.. Since we were too early, we decided to go and ...
The train ride to Amsterdam took us through rural France and Netherlands. We arrived to Amsterdam for the weekend to find a bustling city. Our apartment was in the center of it all. We spent our time walking the canal streets, visiting museums, and taking in the local culture. On Saturday, we went to Zaanse Schans where they have restored several of the old windmills.
