Prelude to an Interlude: Wandering Around Amsterdam

Welcome to the semi-cultural portion of my Theme Park Review Europe Trip 2019 report! Yes, this “prelude” (or “foreword” or “introduction” or “preface” or whatever you want to call it) will be followed by an “interlude.” Get excited, ladies and gents!

The last time I was in Amsterdam with TPR, I did take in a fair amount of culture (such as the paintings of Van Gogh and Rembrandt), not to mention beer. This time, I wandered around the city with my pre-trip roommate, Brad; took a canal-boat ride; did some hard time in the Amsterdam Dungeon; and, of course, ate some poffertjes (oh, I miss these). So, why don’t you join Brad and I was we see the sights of this beautiful Dutch city. Will you learn something? Well, probably not, but it’s a nice walk.

But first we have to get there--via Iceland.

I always look forward to your PTRs. I probably won't be doing one for this trip, but may occasionally hijack your thread.

Excellent photos!! Rikki and I fell in love with Amsterdam last year and loved every second we spent there. You're so right, it's a great city just to wander about and discover something.

Hey, is everybody cool if I just take Chuck's TR and repost it with my name on it?

Going through my photos now, and we have a lot of similar shots. It's almost like we went on the same trip!

Chuck, I have no idea how you get a TR started so quickly after a trip. But suddenly, I want some poffertjes.

(A+ on the Solvang reference, btw)

Can't wait to re-live the experience with the rest of your report!
