I need to re-visit Amsterdam. I was 18 years old, had just graduated high school, and was on a backpacking trip with my best friend, and we were in AMSTERDAM. C'mon. I want to re-visit now that I'm a much more mature (ahem) 22 years old, because I know that it has so much to offer in the way of culture. J and I were too, um, distracted , to take advantage of many of these things. We did, however, visit the wax museum (highly entertaining), meet some cool people, and have some memorable adventures.

Amsterdam, Netherlands capitale, is an highly pleasant city. Famous for the bicycles paths and the canals, you won't be dissapointed: it is exactly that. Plenty museums, parks and monuments, you gonna enjoy your stay. If you want to discover also the Noord-Holland, you can do it by bike or by bus, the region deserves a look as well.

Apesar da fama consolidada de cidade das drogas liberadas, Amsterdam é uma cidade linda. A arquitetura é fascinante, as pessoas são agradáveis, as praças são bem cuidadas.
