Amsterdam! What a great place to attempt to get my land legs back! I must say that I loved it. It’s like nowhere else I have ever been in my life and I would go back in a heartbeat.
We spent two nights there. We took a canal boat ride and went to the Van Gogh Museum and the Anne Frank House. The rest of the time, we just kind of wandered around.
Amsterdam is a place with more bikes than cars…and maybe more bikes than people. Certainly, there were more bikes there than I have ever seen. I’m still a little flummoxed about how you would find your bike there once you park it. We were told that Amsterdam officials fish 10,000 bikes out of the canals each year. I believe that.
We said good bye to our friends, Dona and Bob, in Amsterdam and they flew back to Philadelphia. Greg and I got on the train and went on our way to Paris. It left me feeling like seventeen days go by in a great big hurry.
