Amsterdam was one of the best places we visited on trip! ... well from my point of view anyway :) Even though we only spent 24 hours there, the place was alive on a Tuesday night! So much to do, so much to choose... where to start? We hopped off the train from Copenhagen which was an overnight train that we nearly got booted from as we didnt have Denmark on our Eurail pass, but thats another story. The place we had kip in was locted 20 minutes outside the centre of Amsterdam and was easily accessible via tram which was sweet. The tram system in Amsterdam was pretty good and came every 5 minutes up til midnight and served every area of Amsterdam! From the hostel we hit the Heineken factory which fucken rocked, 3 free beers and a souvenir for 10 euro was sweeeeeeet as! .. So many bloody bikes and canals in Amsterdam.. haha! .. a different place indeed.. A few drinks were had, a few coffee shops were visited and the red light district was strolled. Chicks in windows, haha they even tapped on them to get our attention to get us back .. was pretty funny, the red light district was packed as, so it was safer than Hindley Street on an abandoned winters night ... where to next? ...
