Amsterdam and Rotterdam
May 2012. Travel to Amsterdam with an open mind and leave all political views etc. at home! We travelled to celebrate Henrik's 30th birthday. The capital of the Netherlands is a very beautiful city, especially with all the canals and house boats.
The Red Light District in the city centre and the "coffee shops" in every corner. And at the flower markets you'll find that cannabis starter kits are sold alongside the popular tulips. Well, of course Amsterdam has a lot more to offer than sex and drugs, and we have photo proof of that if you just scroll down a little bit further ;-)
As the Netherlands is a small country we jumped on a train to neighbouring Rotterdam for a day trip. The highlight of that day was Euromast with its lovely views, and a short city hike. There are some interesting sights here, but in the end we felt that we should have focused our attention on Amsterdam.
Below you'll find a selection of photos from our trip to the Netherlands.
