This is probably the most and will be the most spontaneous trip of our life. Booking our flight just two weeks in advance and before we know it, we're on our flight to Amsterdam!
When we arrived, the entire airport and city became one giant Orange fiesta! Everything and Everyone were in Orange. They're celebrating the Queen's Birthday and Orange is their official country colour. When we finally got to town, we still have to walk half a mile to our hotel because all the streets were close for the city-wide party. And when they party, they PARTY! It's like Castro Halloween Party x 100. There's no room to walk or breathe. All you see is one huge fog that smells like weed. And seeing so many white people in Orange gets scary after awhile.
First impression: So many bicycles! Bicycles EVERYWHERE!!! Girls, Boys, Young, Old, riding bikes in all shapes and colors.
I really like all the canals that connects everywhere and we take the canal taxis all over town. Chinatown, Red Light District, Heineken, and Anne Frank's House.
The food selection is not as wide as back home. But their marijuana selection is so diverse so we had a hard time picking just one. Oh, and they have magic mushroom and some psychedelic, Indian cactus root thing that we're too scared to try.
Overall, it was a fun and carefree vacation. And we got so lazy by being spoiled with the freedom to smoke up on the public street, in our hotel room, and in all the coffee shops.
Will definitely recommended to all friends and family. But kids under 18 should stay away from the Red Light District.
