Thursday 29th. We couldn't book in so we wandered down to the centre of the city and had coffee. No one around at that time of day- impressed by the extent of the canals and amazing flower displays every where. We decided to book a few tours - canal cruise, city tour in bus and a tour out in to the country - which was to start at midday. So we scurried back to the hotel, dropped our gear and then back to catch the bus tour called "Volendam, Marken & Windmills" keeping in mind ...

Spent that time awake thinking about the next day and wondering how I was going to survive the jet lag & sleep deprivation. Oh, and Tato you were right, the airplane was freezing.

My spies told me all about ...
... Amsterdam go by.
The next day we had but one morning in Amsterdam before moving on to Paris. We walked around a bit more taking in the sights before heading to the Amsterdam Erotic Museum to cap off the experience. The museum was quite the laugh, and presented an interesting history of many things that we today take for granted.
Before we knew it we were on the Thalys train (which was exceptionally comfortable) and off to Paris!
