I could have stayed our entire five weeks in Amsterdam quite happily, but alas, it’s time to say goodbye and get on a train to Paris.
“So, what if we go to the International Court of Justice? You know, go learn something about crimes against humanity..” So started our planning for a day trip to Den Haag, which was really just an excuse of sorts to ride the trains around.
While I mostly like spending my time just walking around, there’s still a list of common things the tourists do while visiting Amsterdam. I did some of them.
Walking and snapping.
As is often the case, it is what you are not looking for that turns out the most interesting.
Getting over jet lag, eating herring sandwiches and walking around Amsterdam, a very pleasant way to kick off the first week of a long vacation.
Well, that’s one journey. Now another one begins.
I think there is nothing that will keep 80 year-old Dutch women off their bikes or away from the nudist beaches. I am in terrible shape. My bike is too heavy. The wind never stops blowing in my face.
I finally meet my Russian pen pal in Amsterdam.
