AMC and I went to Amsterdam to celebrate my birthday this year. It’s an interesting place. I found the whole experience odd, but enjoyable. It’s a strange mix of people there - I guess we were there for the weekend, so perhaps got the weekend crowds. There were lots of stags/hens parties, all stumbling around the red light district, being enticed into BananaBar (or whatever it was called) for some live action, and the coffeehuis situation is a bit odd too. It’s quite fun seeing people totally off their chops stumbling around the streets.

So, what did we do/see?

  • Heineken Brewery Tour
    Heineken Brewery
  • Red Light District
  • Flea Market
  • Van Gogh Museum
  • Sex Museum
  • Torture Museum (not worth it!)
  • Canal Cruise
  • Drank Beer
  • Ate Indonesian (cause it’s frickin’ hard to find in the UK)
  • Saw a really funny looking little car
    Funny Car

There are lots of bikes there.

And I bought a new hat.
