It’s currently 2:50 am and Iam sitting at Starbucks inside the Amsterdam airport. In a few hours Iam going to Barcelona. Btw Starbucks here has way better flavors just saying.
Let’s talk about the trip so far. On late Saturday I went to the airport at about 3am. I left Mexico and got to Fort Lauderdale at about 9am. I then sat at that airport until 10pm. Ya I know crazy long time. Then I flew and got to Copenhagen at about one. Then finally arrived to Amsterdam around 6pm. It felt like the longest trip of my life. I had met a girl from England on the way to my hostel she was hilarious. She actually came with me to help find my hostel. Which we laughed when I found my hostel was in the red light district.
My first night I met two girls from Denmark. We went out and walked through the red light district. It was pretty awesome and full of life and activity. Here there is many coffee shops, food, tattoos, and whatever possible. The streets were packed like walking through Times Square but only through a more narrow road. I found a shop only dedicated to ducks and cows lol. There is also many cheese shops and it tastes so wonderful here.
The second day. I actually met a girl from Houston and she gave me some travel tips. I then went on a free tour of the city. After I ate some popular Dutch food. Which was good I love there things that look like waffle cookies haha. The supermarkets here have some really delicious food and it’s incredibly cheap. I tried this chocolate with Oreos and it was so good!!! I also then went to the ice bar. This was cool they gave you some free drinks and you could freeze for a bit. We then went looking for this bar and on the way it started raining. We then got lost and I was drenched, when we finally found it the line was so long!
Today, I woke up and had to hurry and check out of the hostel. Which I recommend if you ever stay in Amsterdam go to the youth hostel meeting point. It’s a great place to stay and good beds. After checking out I was supposed to go to a canal tour. I was going then I got lost lol. I said f it and ventured to find the Amsterdam sign. And vondal park I believe it’s called. I really love that park it’s so soothing. I sat there and ate bread while looking over a pond.
The architecture is amazing in Amsterdam. You will see some houses lean forwards or some are just leaning. If they lean forward it was done on purpose to help get things through the window. If sunk and leaning that just means to much moisture happened beneath. I will be back on Monday. I can say this has been amazing and still hard to believe it’s actually happening. Much love!
