So now that I got the "taboo"/most talked about part of Amsterdam out of the way,
I would like to talk about Amsterdam aside from the Red Light District,
because obviously that is a very small part of this awesome city.
S and I only had a few days here,
and definitely want to go back when Liz and her hubby are actually in town.
It isn't one of those places you go to chill out and relax,
it is super high energy with thousands of bikes everywhere you go,
with little room for both walkers and bikers on the same path...
(definitely almost got hit by a biker a few dozen times).
It is a lot bigger than I had expected,
and A LOT cleaner.
One of the first things I noticed was how incredibly clean it was,
and then I got a little envious because Glasgow is just not a very clean city.
Liz's place is STUNNING and on probably one of the best streets there,
tucked a little bit away from the crazy hussel and bussle,
situated right on a canal.
Speaking of Canals,
that was my favorite part.
I could sit along the canals all day and watch the boats go by,
drinking a glass of wine and nibbling on bread and cheese.
For the first time in awhile,
I also didn't feel like the minority.
This city is such a melting pot of people.
I heard so many american accents,
whereas in scotland, I maybe hear one (other than my own) once or twice a month.
It made me feel a bit more like living in LA with all of the diversity.
With only a few days there we didn't sight see as much, or eat at all of the great recommendations as we would of liked,
But I highly recommend this stop on any travelers agenda,
and fully intend on going back.
