This beautiful Dutch city took my breath away and impressed me in so many ways that I never could have imagined. From the gorgeous canals to the wonderful history, I was taken aback. The entire experience exceeded my expectations and I can’t wait to return.
Tessa and I traveled on the Megabus from Paris to Amsterdam, which was a 7 hour drive. It actually wasn’t too bad! We took the night bus and were able to catch a few ZZ’s before arriving at our destination. Once there, we checked into our hostel, which was pretty darn cool – it was a boat! We stayed on a “bostel” called Christina and it was super duper cool.
We spent our time eating pancakes and drinking beer in between numerous museums. My favorite being the Anne Frank House. Touring this historic monument was inspiring and heartbreaking at the same time. I feel so blessed to have been able to see such a huge part of history. And now after going, I am going to start reading The Diary of Anne Frank and cannot wait.
Overall, this experience was a dream and I cannot wait to return soon.
