Somehow I got a bit off track with sharing our vacation photos with you. Let's get back to it, shall we? Here we are in our last stop along the way... Amsterdam! Our arrival in Amsterdam was a bit later in the day than we expected after a train mishap. As in, we got on the wrong one. Oopsy! It really wasn't a big problem and we were able to get off at the next stop and catch the correct train, it just put us a bit behind schedule.
Amsterdam was everything we expected it to be; canals winding their way through the city, bikes and bikes as far as you could see, the smell of marijuana wafting out of coffee shops, house boats lining the canals and drunken tourists shouting from their party boats. Honestly, if it wasn't for said drunken tourists, the city was quite lovely. Our first day we walked the streets, sat at a sidewalk cafe to have a beer, visited the Bloemenmarkt where I met the world's friendliest cat, peered into the windows of house boats, had dinner with an old friend at an Ethiopian restaurant and wandered into an art gallery opening.
