    Amsterdam is an amazing city. I love wandering the along the canals, visiting the amazing museums and sitting on patios, drinking beer and people watching – which is more interesting in Amsterdam than anywhere else I’ve ever been.

    And Queen’s Day is an amazing time – probably the best festival I’ve ever been to. You’ll have a hell of a time.

    You’re doing a hell of a job Tom! I have to admit, reading your posts is getting addicting! These posts make me dream about how beautiful other parts of the world are (I live in California US), and make me want to travel so bad. I can only hope that one day I will see all of them for myself 😀

      Thanks Dalton! Appreciate the kind words. Travelling is feasible for everyone – if you want to do it, it can be done! It’s something I think everyone should do whilst they are still young (or old, or just a human being ;)) It’s funny how the grass is always greener though hehe, I really want to visit your patch of land, lovely California!

        I agree the grass always does seem greener. And ya, I’m only 16 so for someone my age, travelling is pretty difficult. However, I do have a 45 day backpacking journey pretty similar to yours that you did when you were 18 that a friend and I have planned for summer 2015. I think about it all the time and I just can’t wait! All of your articles just get me more and more excited for it. California is an awesome place, the beaches here really are wonderful (if you ever do come, I’d love to tell you about some great places), but i don’t know, thinking about all of the places I haven’t been to just get me so excited. Anyway, thanks for the comment and keep posting articles Tom! Have a good one! 🙂

    I’ll be in Amsterdam for a few days in July. I’d really love to rent a bike and bike outside of the city/see the countryside – is that possible? If so, where would you suggest biking to?

    Thanks!

    Anyone who wants to visit the Red Light District needs to keep their camera hidden; it is not permitted to take photos there and if you do a big, burly guy may come out and take your camera away.

    Also, try the fries as the locals do, with mayonnaise instead of ketchup. Or get even more adventurous and get it with satay sauce. Indonesian food is big there, as the country used to be a Dutch colony.

      Yep, Indonesian food is everywhere in Holland – I loved it when I was living there! Yeah, and better not have your camera out when walking through the red light district, that’s for sure.
