Amsterdam

The last stop for fall break was Amsterdam. We were there for three days but it definitely was not enough. It’s by far the biggest of the cities we visited, which made getting around a little more complicated. Luckily, Google Maps can always help lend a hand with public transport directions. In the end, I didn’t even get to do everything I wanted here, so I’ll be going back as soon as possible!

After that we headed to the Van Gogh Museum. Pictures weren’t allowed but I snuck a few in.

Since it was Saturday night the museum was open late and even had DJs.

The Amsterdam sign is very crowded and hard to take a picture with, so we just claimed the ‘A’ for Anna and Adler.

Our plan was simple, hop on the Pancake Boat and eat as many pancakes as we could in the allotted 75 minute time period.
