Amsterdam is a great city to explore – once that is, you get away from the red-light district and various coffee shops! Its small enough to wander and if you’re feeling brave, grab a bike and join the locals though bear in mind, the Dutch are born aboard their bikes and take no prisoners so you need to be competent! Amusingly, you do see the odd tourist getting wiped out by making the mistake of stepping into a bike lane without looking!
We were there recently and had a wonderful time – visiting the numerous museums, meeting friends and taking canal trips at night, such a great way to see the city – sipping champagne as the boat meanders its way through the streets, gives a totally different prospective to the place and is highly recommended.
Theres also a very active graffiti scene, here’s a selection of photos following the trip.
