Flag of Netherlands  , Noord-Holland,

Off to Amsterdam for a weekend of fun.  We went with Beth and Adam, Andrea and D'Andre.  We took the early ferry over and drove in.  We were planning to stop at Keukenhof on the way but put it off until our trip back because we hit a bit of traffic and were running late. 

We had a blast in Amsterdam.  The weather was good except for a bit of rain one day.  Steve and I managed to find a fabulous market...  I don't know how we missed it before.  Bread, cheese, meats, fish....  part of the market was all organic.  Steve found a back scratcher for 2 euro...  I've been replaced for 2 euro!!!  Had I known I would have bought him one years ago!  We hit all of our favorite pubs and of course falafel!!  Yum!  Tried a couple of new restaurants.  The first place we had been eying for a while.  It used to be a soup kitchen.  Unfortunately it wasn't that great.  We were a bit disappointed.  The other place, Cafe de Prins...  was quite good.  Cheese fondues...  mmmmm.  We also hit the Pancake Factory because it's so yummy. 

We made a couple of Amsterdam maps in Google maps.  Check them out if you are planning a visit!

On the way home we stopped off to see the flowers at Keukenhof then popped into Dranken Geers to stock up on beer and Fanta Lemon.  As always a good trip.
