    Amsterdam Walking Tour

    June 2, 2018 in the Netherlands ⋅ 🌧 14 °C

    Yesterday was much better day. We had a very nice buffet breakfast before we left for a walking morning tour of Amsterdam. What a fascinating city. It seems to be built entirely on long, massive stilts!! We walked through the streets of different neighborhoods. The architecture is really fascinating and diverse. Our tour guide’s grandfather was an architect and built many of the bridges and buildings during his career. Hence our architecture lessons. I took way too many pictures but will whittle the number down. I’ll then send them on as soon as I figure out how to do it. (I just figured out how to post this yesterday.). We went back to our rooms to rest for the afternoon. We seem to get turned around a lot. (Not lost!!). We walked to the end of the block for dinner. It was a lovely restaurant with excellent food. We seem to be almost acclimated to the new times. We still wake up around 3, though. A 9 hour difference is quite an adjustment. The weather has been alternately partly rainy, warmly humid and perfect!! We are having a really fun time. Today we will take a canal ride and then, off to the boat at 3:30.Read more
