Amsterdam

We slept in this morning and our first task was to recce the route to catch the train to Schiphol. We bought the one way ticket we will need tomorrow morning. This will save us time and it’s easier knowing where you are going when you leave in the dark. From the train station we caught the metro which went around the outskirts of Amsterdam and then we went back to the older part of the city. First coffee in the Red Light District and then a lot more walking.

We went to the Jewish Quarter and it’s the first Synagogue we’ve seen in Europe without armed police or army presense. We walked along The Amstel and stopped in De Pijp for a beer. Then along the Canal Belt before getting tostis for lunch.

We ambled through Vondelpark after espressi and then did some shopping. Tonight is all about packing and getting ready for our 6:30am start tomorrow.

Once we had packed, we went to the dining room and had a picnic supper. Then normal bed time as we’ve set the alarm for our usual wake-up.
