Hey remember when I went to Europe last year?
Yeah.. I still haven't finished telling you all about it.
We spent three fun-filled days in Amsterdam,
doing... a lot of things that are probably not appropriate to mention on this blog.
Certain things I can recommend though:
1. Rent a bike and pedal your way through this gorgeous city.
It may be a little intimidating at first,
simply because of the overwhelming amount of bicycles every where you look.
That, coupled with cars, trolleys and pedestrians,
makes for a pretty tricky ride,
but I promise you'll soon get the hang of it and even find it quite enjoyable.
We started out with a bike tour to get into the groove, and it was a perfect intro to the culture.
2. Pay a visit to the Anne Frank museum.
Granted, you may walk out a few hours later in a pretty somber mood,
but the experience is a must and will leave you humbled and more appreciative of life.
3. Grab a street-side table at one of the numerous cafes around Dam Square,
and just people watch for a few hours.
It's pretty entertaining.
Or, join the rest of the crowd and get lost in one of the many tiny side streets of city center.
You're guaranteed to stumble across something interesting.
4. Get out at night and wander through the Red Light District.
No, you won't be considered a perv.
This is such a big part of the culture that you'll regret not seeing it with your own eyes.
Hop into one of the many bars, take an unknown shot, and chat with random strangers about just how gorgeous some of those window girls are.
5. Grab a seat along one of the canals and take in a stunning sunset.
Amsterdam is honestly one of the prettiest cities we've ever had a chance to visit.
I can't wait to go back!
