Hallo from Amsterdam!


After a long day of travel I am in Amsterdam at last. It is, as expected, a city of bikes, canals and tulips. It is also very beautiful with amazing architecture, sunny skies and well, tulips. 

I won’t lie; Amsterdam and I did not get off to a good start. While the flight was fine, the airport was a bit of a nightmare for several reasons. The trains weren’t running so my carefully researched plan on how to get to Centraal Station had to be revised on the fly and I got quite lost trying to find my hotel which, under the right circumstances can be fun, but not when you’re jetlagged. 

All got sorted in the end and a hot shower and a couple of naps have improved my outlook enormously.  I spent a little time walking in “my” neighborhood and have already taken a bizillion photos – this place is seriously photogenic. Now I’m looking forward to a good nights sleep. On to the next adventure tomorrow (with far fewer snafus please!)
