I have to admit I've always wanted to visit Amsterdam but was put off by the legalization of drugs and what I imagined it would be like. Drug addicts begging for money, or falling victim to a strong armed robbery. All the worse case scenarios weighed on my mind but the natural beauty of Amsterdam and its rich history was plenty enough to still lure me in.
I cannot believe what fun there is to be had and still not break any laws! Amsterdam is quite diverse and exotic everyone I came across were all very friendly and helpful. The food was magnificent and whatever you want you can have. The deserts were magnificent and yes I tried as many as possible.
We only stayed for three days but I plan on returning for at least a week maybe even two.
House boats along the canals.
I loved seeing so many people riding bikes, dropping the kids off to school and carrying groceries!
