Amsterdam Walking Tour – Thursday May 19

Thursday 19 May 2011

Amsterdam is a fascinating, energetic and diverse city.   There are people everywhere

and you will find every type of hairdo on every shape and size wearing every fashion imaginable.  If you can dream it, you can probably find it walking the streets or in the gazillion stores in the center of the city.

Walking is easy and scenic

but your head will spin with the different characters to see,

from top to bottom.

There are beautiful parks around the city with miles of walking and biking trails,

beautiful architecture and incredible museums.

Though we walked by at least half the city’s famous museums, I was only allowed one to go in, so we went to The Van Gogh Museum.  If you are at all a museum fan, Amsterdam should be on the top of your list; experiencing the original works of art and learning a bit about the artists will leave you breathless and at the very least, speechless (so the museum trip was worth it for Jerry, too).

But we’ve played tourist for much longer than I thought possible, so tomorrow we Ride.

Hope to see you on the road.

    Glad to hear you’re having fun even BEFORE you get on the bikes. I was thinking Jerry’s reason for this European bike tour is so he can stick to that old investing adage: “Sell in May and go away.”
