Where I stayed

Flag of Netherlands  , Noord-Holland,
Tuesday, September 29, 2009

The four hour ride through the German and Dutch countryside was very enjoyable but tense at times as this was our first REAL autobahn experience.  We drove 90 to 100 mph most of the time and that was the middle lane.

The right lane is where all the big trucks are required to be and the far left lane is where the 100+ mph drivers are.  It was quite a humbling experience to be cruising along at 100mph and see a minivan whiz past you at 130mph.  Yeehaw!

It was also very nice to see all the big trucks always staying in one lane out of everybody's way.

(Editors Note:  We received a speeding ticket that was charged to our rental car bill two months after we returned home.  We called the rental company and they said a highway camera caught us...go figure!)

We arrived outside Amsterdam and parked at a Park and Ride, which was recommended because parking in Amsterdam is supposedly nearly impossible and very expensive.

We hopped on the subway and arrived at our hostel around 8:30pm, ate at a cute little Dutch restaurant, then called it a night.

Tomorrow, we hope to hit a few museums, take a canal ride, and tour the red light district...
