Well, Amsterdam was a little bit of a surprise I guess you could say, but a good one over all. I will admit that I wasn’t too thrilled about the idea of having to stay over night in Amsterdam in the beginning. I already had the mindset of going home and this wasn’t part of the plan. I guess not everything is part of the plan and you just have to take it as it comes, whether it may be bad…or good. It was meant to be.
So once we got to the hotel and rested up, a few of us decided to venture out and check out Amsterdam and the famous Red Light District. I’ve always heard about the Red Light District, but I never thought I would actually get to see it in person. It was definitely an experience on its own. My favorite part about Amsterdam was the canals between the sidewalks and the buildings. It had a very close-knit feel, which I liked a lot. Another bonus of having our flight delayed was all the free stuff we received such as – hotel, food, and $250 free flight. After all that, it’s hard to still be bitter about the whole ordeal. I would like to go back some day…maybe a bike ride around the city?
