Last stop of my trip before driving right across germany towards poland and my flight home. 3 Nights in Amsterdam!
I took care of booking the accomodations for this one, making sure it was close (but not too close) to all the touristy stuff.
We ended up with a nice 1300 sqft apartment with 3 bedrooms, everyone got their own bed which was nice, and unheard of in our last hotels.
I love amsterdam, i want to move there, everyone is so easy going and the culture is like nothing else!!
Our first night we took it easy, my self and another guy cooked a meal for the group and we took a short walk around town before heading it in for a relatively early night.
Second day we took a really cool bike tour from the metro station, saw a lot of the city and some of its cool facts. Met a nice couple of females from Switzerland who we ended up hanging out with the next couple nights!
From the advice of the bike tour guide we visited ArendsNest which was a more local pub with 30 different dutch beer on draft.... some really unique different beers thats for sure, almost rivaled Belguim as far as quality and uniqueness.
The next day we planned on touring some museums and breery/vodka tours but because of dragging feet to get ready, we didnt end up out of there till 3pm, so we caught the Heineken brewery tour first, and tasted some 2 day old heineken... was actually not bad, and I'm usually not a fan.
We then went on a cruise of the canals at night followed by some food and drinks around town ...
Off to poland early in the morning and a 9 hour drive ... uuuugh!!
