This was the start of a two-week trip to Europe. The first week: A much-needed solo trip through the Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg. The second week: Shenanigans with my brother Phil in Denmark and Sweden.
First, a quick pit stop in the land of bud and red lights, a.k.a., Amsterdam.
A GLORIOUS day
I truly lucked out with a GORGEOUS day and thoroughly managed to wear myself out walking around the adorably quirkiest of European cities…while learning more than I ever expected to about canals, cannabis, and prostitution. Like I said, quirky.
Oh, and let’s be real: I was SUPER excited for the frites. My hotel was loud, but in a super cool part of the city so I got over that really quickly.
Con: I didn’t do enough research or give myself enough time to see the tulips, which were in full bloom a couple hours north of the city.
