    amsterdam is pretty touristy and expensive but really pretty. we also went in a super hot period (30 degrees plus) which made it more uncomfortable for us than I think it normally would be.

    The lovely city that is Amsterdam

    Very lovely city, has a strong smell to it but has interesting sites to see such as the Red Light District and historical sites such as the Anne Frank Musuem which if you visit Amsterdam you must visit this place!

    Amsterdam

    I got separated from my friend on the tram and got very lost. I was pretty stoned so no one really wanted to help me and people were talking shit about me in spanish, which i understand, and it was very rude and unhelpful. Needless to say Amsterdam is fun, but don't get too fucked up and lost.

    Insider Tip:Download an offline map and translator if you don't know the area or speak the language.

    A City of Tourists

    Amsterdam is quite a strange city that seems more full of tourists than locals. It was so cool to see everyone ride bikes and i wish I had had the time to do it.

    Insider Tip:Rent a bike on your first day to ride around and see all the city has to offer. Then pick and go do it!

    Amazing City

    I have been traveling for the past 4 weeks and have visited 7 different countries. In that time, Amsterdam has been my favorite city by far. The people are extremely friendly. It is probably not an ideal location for those traveling with children as it is nearly impossible to walk down a street without seeing a cafe or sex shop (granted I never traveled too far outside of the red light district). For those that like things of a green nature, Amsterdam is the place for you!

    Insider Tip:Check out City Hall Cafe, located right next to the Green House in the Red Light district. Green house is also a great location, but don´t buy the pre-rolls there, they are pretty sloppy. Dam Square is also a great place to go explore some of the many museums and shops that Amsterdam has to offer.
