Amsterdam! June 11, 2012

Trey and I arrived in Amsterdam this morning at 8:30 Amsterdam time (2:30 AM EST) after a slight delay at the Atlanta airport and a loooooong flight. We took the train from the airport to Amsterdam Centraal and walked the 15-20 minute (30 with baggage) to our hostel. The thing about our hostel is that it’s actually on a small docked passenger boat! It’s called “Passenger Ship Avanti” and Trey and I are sharing a nice cozy (aka small) cabin with bunk beds, one little closet, a sink, and one shower/toilet for the entire hall.

We took a walking tour of the city after grabbing a quick lunch and our South African/English/Dutch tour guide Mark was terrific! After eating a much cheaper dinner and some delicious Dutch ice cream for dessert, we headed back to the hostel to call it an early night. Don’t worry, this won’t become a habit, we’re both just exhausted from the flight, time change, lack of sleep, and miles of walking we did today.
