|Vodka Museum, Amsterdam|
I love living in England because it is the gateway to Europe, so it provides the opportunity to travel into Continental Europe for a weekend...
Me & my girl hopped into Amsterdam for an Autumn weekend, and people must know Amsterdam is freezing! Geez, the chill from the Dam is serious, so please however the temps feel in England, they are sure to be chillier in Amsterdam.
|Sex Museum, Amsterdam|
So Amsterdam is the Sin City of Europe, people think sex, Red Light District, weed, coffee shops, more weed, more sex. There is so much more to Amsterdam - the best thing was visiting Anne Frank's house.
I remember reading the book in school & never imagined I would actually get an opportunity to visit, it was a great experience & I loved the authenticity of the place.
The history of Amsterdam was narrated to us aboard one of the boats, as it took us around the Dam.
The bicycles and trams just add more to the romanticisation of the city, but yes, of course - we did indulge in the sex (we visited a sex museum, Red Light District) and our curiousity took us into sex shops & coffee shops, which stank - just reminded me of the days smoking indoors was legal in the UK. Educational bit, was learning about vodka (we were in Holland not Russia) at the Vodka Museum.
Overall, I loved Amsterdam, as for the food - I guess they have good beer? But I didn't really indulge in any Dutch cuisine - do space cakes count? LOL
Oooooh and we saw a man levitating on the street!!!
