Netherlands: Amsterdam

During my extended stay in Rotterdam doing HelpX, I took a quick overnight trip to Amsterdam, a very convenient train ride away. I got a behind-the-scenes tour at the Van Gogh museum with a relative (no photos allowed), and took a canal tour which was very touristy but still worth it.  Being woken up repeatedly in a noisy hostel dorm may have clouded my perception of the city, however, and I was happy to head back to Rotterdam after less than 24 hours there.

 What the 'I Amsterdam' sign looks like at 6:45 in the morning. These two young women were from California and graciously took my photo before they left for the airport.
