    The rooms were Ok but smaller than expected. The corridors smelt of smoke. The rooms were not as clean as I would have hoped. The location, although not far from the Lelylaan train station (2 stops from the airport) and 200 m to a tram stop and 500m to the far end of Vondel park, was in a weird situation of mixed business district, empty lots and residential blocks - no atmosphere at all nearby - but that is modern Amsterdam I suppose. it was still 3-4 km from the centre of Amsterdam requiring a tram trip in daily, kind of fun anyway - get a day pass on the tram cheaper - the centre, museums, cafes, canals etc is where we spent most of our time. But that's what you get for a budget price. I thought it was odd that the manager told us we MUST wait at the desk for 15 minutes to check out whilst she conducted the daily meeting with cleaning staff - this was a little inconvenient and more so for some who might need to make train connections, but not a show stopper. OK stay - but I would stay closer to the centre and spend a little more to do it.

    Europe has No Wildlife

    ... Dutch doughnut, which tasted amazing but 3 Euro seemed a bit rich for a doughnut. I walked up and down the Red Light District and was surprised that the women advertising their wears from behind doorways and windows all seemed to be at least 40 years old. I'm not judging, but I rather imagined that Amsterdam's sex industry would be catering to a younger generation. It was by now nearly 2pm, and the Weather app indicated rain starting at 3pm ...

    ... Dutch countryside.

    We travelled by coach and quickly reached our first city, Zaanse Schans. This quaint little town is a conservation area that has many working windmills and traditional architecture, featuring the classic green wooden houses. At one time there were more than 30 thousand windmills in the Netherlands, now there are less than 1000. This was a nice way to get a glimpse of what the country must have looked like long ago. There ...

    ... to a little sidewalk cheese store, passed a beautiful little romantic hotel and then a bicycle decorated in bright colors and flowers. Back on the bus for the ride back to the boat. We found a table and 4 chairs so we could play cards for about 45 minutes. Boys against the girls and they are killing us in "Spades". Wayne didn't even know how to play but he obviously is a quick study as he knew exactly how to get ...

    ... front desk was friendly. Berit had warned us not to leave anything inside of the car that as visible. So since we were early, we figured we would ask the hotel if we could store our bags at the desk for a few hours. They were nice enough to find us a room that was ready so we could get settled in. Luckily the room was in better shape than the rest of the place. Room was big, good sized clean bed and television with at least 1 English speaking station! Comedy central no less. I had ...

    ... we first set eyes on Venice - such a radically different place to look at that it affects your frame of mind. We spent the first afternoon sitting at a canal-side bar, having a big cabernet and an even bigger beer - eating vintage Dutch cheddar dunked in the scrummiest mustard you can image - Oh yeah! We did a bit of that actually.

    The train trip up from Berlin was another beauty. The European rail networks really seem ...
