It's a 2.5 hour train ride to Amsterdam. Not too bad. Amsterdam is a great old city with fabulous architecture and scenery. The main street between the train station and down town is now lined with tacky trinket and sweatshirt shops and trip/ticket sellers which, I suppose was inevitable but it's still a little sad to see them beneath such beautiful buildings. Then again, the sex museum has been there for ages so...

At the train station waiting to go.

Bikes and a canal...can't get more Amsterdam than that.

The infamous sex museum.

Mmmmm. Cheese! They had at least a dozen different cheeses out for sample and we sampled each one at least three times!!

Tall and skinny and all squished together. Each one different.

Sit. Stay.

House boats and row boats and kayaks all share the canal.

Even if you live on a boat you still need bikes!

And mail.

And why shouldn't you have a little outdoor breakfast nook?

Kids and groceries get a 1st class ride.

  1. Apparently I have led a very sheltered life, because I have never heard of the "infamous" sex museum. LOL.

    On the other hand, I have always dreamed of living on a houseboat. I would absolutely love that!!
