That was an amazing look at Amsterdam, Andy. I really want to check out that science museum now!

That's great that you got to see so much, I was completely enthralled by the Vondelpark and didn't really see anything else. :lmao:

I never really liked Amsterdam when doing the more 'touristy' stuff. But like you, once we kind of strayed off the beaten track it grew on me more.

I will provide you with maximum pleasure.

Honestly I do too now! I looked at it a bit online and it looks really cool inside.

Well, next time I'm gonna have to check out the Vondelpark. We can trade itineraries!

Yep -- and it's not like I even went that far off the beaten path, perhaps aside from that "art" installation under the bridge. But honestly I could just walk around random neighborhoods and parks in these old European cities for hours and never get bored.

About the same time you publish yours from Krakow.

There is honestly lots and lots of things to see and do in Amsterdam, all within walking distance.
We stay mainly in a small hotel opposite Oude Kerk church...and The District edge. It's makes for
interesting evenings and weekend afternoons. We once heard, from our room opposite, the bells
player (?) of the church do a Saturday afternoon "West Side Story" medley! It was awesome.

So many things you saw! A good thorough tour, I felt. Thanks for sharing it all.

But did you eat anything else besides those....stroopwafels? :?r

Amsterdam is a unique, beautiful city. I hit the Amsterdam Dungeon, and it was fun, but pretty cheesy.

Yes -- more stroopwafels!!!

Yep, that all sounds about right to me. The coaster had already been closed for two years when I went there in 2016, so I didn't even get a credit out of the deal.

TPR spent one night in Amsterdam in 2008, and the plan was to visit the Dungeon for that credit; unfortunately, there was a power failure, so that was that.
