Travel Bag {Amsterdam, Netherlands}

Friday, May 27, 2011

My parents recently got back from a trip to Holland (Netherlands) and it made me reminisce on my quick trip to Amsterdam. It was quite the weekend!

I visited the Netherlands (commonly known as Holland) in February 2007 for my Reading week break during University. I went with my BF and his sister for the weekend in between our trip to England. We made the most of each day and traveled to as many parts of the city as possible. 
We were there during the off season and the canal boat taxis didn't run at that time, so we ended up walking a lot! Another great way to get around this city is biking. The bike traffic is as busy as the motor vehicle traffic, and it was wonderful to see such an active city. We visited the infamous Red Light District on the first night we were there, and it was definitely all that you would imagine...and more. Something I only need to see once. We also walked through the historic Anne Frank Museum which I really enjoyed.
