Stayed for two days in July. Great little hotel right on Vondelpark. Clean rooms (we booked with private bathroom). Very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast not included, but very fast and easy to use Wifi. We rented bikes from them (15 euro for 24 hrs, which is a bit pricier than the bike touring companies but then you'd have to pay 2,80 to ride the tram into town). Takes less than 10 minutes to bike into city centre.

... apparently the barfed-up communion wafer was fireproof. I can't speak to what they did with the previously regurgitated wafer after that, but this entire episode is called- and again, not joking- "The Miracle Of Amsterdam." I am certain you can see why visiting this was of such singular importance.
We stopped for an outdoor beer at a brown cafe just steps from the Begijnhof for an hour, while we waited for our entry time to the ...

A short walk, a tram ride, another short walk and we were back in Schellingwoude. We shopped for dinner at the nearby market and headed home in a torrential downpour. Remember at the start of this post when we said we had dressed prepared for the rain...we found out quickly on the last part of our return home that nothing we could have prepared us, short of webbed feet and duck feathers! Soaked but safe, another good day of touring Amsterdam done.
Hey. Sorry for the delay. We are simply melting in the heat these days... So Tuesday, day two in Amsterdam, was bike day. We skipped out of bed to free pancakes (free hostel breakfast is the best!) and trundled along to find our tour with Mike's Bikes. We were given some tips and tricks by Mike from the Netherlands (not the Mike) who then became our punky and party hardy bike guide. Navigating the city was slightly terrifying as we weaved single ...
... so many people.
We booked a tour for Sunday that would take us to the Keukenhof tulip gardens, the windmill area at Zaanse Kans and Vollendam. This was a wonderful day and I'm so glad we did it. The photos speak for themselves really.
I can't believe this beautiful city is only an hour away from where we live. If there weren't so many other places to explore we would be back in a heartbeat!
... convinced that anyone has ever wanted to go to Basel as badly as we did then.
A helpful couple seated across the aisle from where we flung ourselves, exhausted from sprinting through train stations and only 90% convinced we were actually on a train for Basel, confirmed that the train was in fact Basel-bound, but only the front half. At the next stop, the train would separate and only the front half would continue on. They made sure we knew when to transfer and which car ...
