Amsterdam, capital city of The Netherlands. Famous for its red light district and relaxed coffee shop culture. But that’s not all there is to this small European city.
Many times I have heard people talking about Amsterdam in a way that makes you think it’s a city full of dodgy, smelly coffee shops, prostitutes and tourists looking for either one or both of those. I always feel kind of sad about that because Amsterdam is not like that at all in my opinion.
A visit to Amsterdam
When we arrived at Amsterdam Central Station we were welcomed with some typical Dutch grey December weather. After checking into our hostel Stayokay and dropping off our luggage we were excited to head into town. We hadn’t been in Amsterdam for well over a year.
