We stayed at the Tulip Inn in Vienna and the two do not compare. While this hotel is as advertised, it is lacking in some areas. The hotel is a little distant from the metro (1km) and through a construction area. The metro will take you downtown. The hotel would like you to reuse your towels, which is great! However, a towel rack or hooks of something in the bathroom to hang them from would be a good idea. The two hangers are not sufficient. There are no drawers or wardrobe to speak of, just a shelf for you luggage. The hotel breakfast is expensive at 15 Euro's each and no restaurants around to pick from. I would not stay here again.

It was sad to say goodbye to Tante Verena and Onkel Conrad, but we are looking forward to Amsterdam. We have arrived and found our hotel with little trouble. We have chosen to stay outside of Amsterdam at the Tulip Inn. This way we can park the car and take public transit into the heart of Amsterdam. This is always more convenient …
... up in Rotterdam or somewhere else and it would have cost a couple hundred euros to get to Amsterdam!
We arrived in Amsterdam, about 60 euros lighter from our unplanned taxi ride to a dreary drizzly day. After checking into the hotel we went in search of lunch and ended up in the Jordaan neighborhood at this place call Piqniq. After lunch we wandered around the canals, catching the scent of coffee shops and took a boat tour. ...
On the cruise over to the Sea Palace, Scottie decides he is going to do a speech. Its pretty decent, he runs through all the highlight of the tour, with all the shena****ns and alike mentioned. Coming to an end though he drops a major bomb and reveals that this is in fact his first ever tour. Before doing this he has been an onsite team member but not ever traveled with a group.
Its pretty incredible that he kept his story straight ...
... and buy the tickets for the next sight, the Rijksmuseum. I wasn't in the mood to queue yet again today!
To be honest, the Van Gogh gallery didn't interest me that much. I think I went partly because it's one of the cities top sights, although I didn't really find his artwork that interesting. There was also a display for another artist, Felix Vallotton, and I thought his artwork was a lot better.
Before heading to the Rijksmuseum, I thought I should have lunch, ...
... The folks here do not own cars, but every one seems to have a boat and use in on warm days. There were a lot so folks getting calm today as we passed the 'coffee' houses. Just sitting there with a joint. It is illegal on the streets but that does not seem to stop some.
Hopefully we will be able to get this installment to you in less than 12 hours.
Tomorrow promises to be another good day.
Stay tuned if you dare.
