A few weeks ago we went on a trip to Amsterdam for 4 days. We stayed in a little beach town called Wijk aan Zee, which was absolutely adorable but way too far from the city. While we were there we went on a brunch boat cruise through the canals, the Heineken brewery tour, museums and a lot of shopping and walking around. The red light district was worth walking through, but it was kind of dirty and depressing. Weed is also legal there and the whole place smelled like it.
We also went to the Anne Frank house, which was very sad and really put a human perspective on what Jewish people went through during the Holocaust. Her actual diary is on display there, and her writing was very thoughtful and eloquent for someone so young.
