Amsterdam, Netherlands | December 2015 - January 2016
After a tearful goodbye to Paris, we hoped on another train to take us to our final destination of our European vacation; Amsterdam! Amsterdam was absolutely charming! We were in the city for 4 chilly, but mostly sunny days. My most absolute favorite thing about the city is that the canal houses have pulleys on the top of the building to lift furniture up and through the windows because the doorways and stairs are too narrow. Just a fun fact about this little city.
Everything about this city was good. A little cold, but so good. Plus, Nutella seemed to be on every corner. So I know that if I ever live here, my sweetooth is in good hands.
Where we stayed: This AirBnb in Amsterdam-Oost
What we loved: Riding bikes with the locals, wandering around the canals, sampling every flavor of cheese, stroopwafles, small beers, Febo, frites and fritesauss, pancakes!, Zaanse Schans, windmills, techno music playing all over the city, finding "our bar" and "our bartender", watching Luke karaoke with the locals.
