Wham, bam and thank you ma’am! Amsterdam can pick you up, throw you around like a rag doll and spit you out like yesterday’s old news in a heartbeat, never mind twenty four hours.
I had come to the capital of the Netherlands for some good old fashioned rest and recreation and, knowing the old lady a bit, got just the rewards I was looking for. Stop that you dirty minded reader! I didn’t mean the red light district (more on that later) or the ubiquitous coffee shops, although I have a few tips for the uninitiated. I meant sampling the delights of a great liberal minded capital city with so much to offer the casual tourist and taking advantage of the beautiful weather to amble about its historic waterways.
