A 10 hour layover in Amsterdam might just be long enough to get into trouble. It is a super cool city, but we probably should have reversed our route and ended here. It would take a nice contrast to the Morocco journey - well, you know what they say about hindsight....
Now we are wishing we would have taken a bike parking picture or some rush hour bike traffic video. Holy cow. Can't imagine biking in this city at rush hour or any hour for that matter. Just crossing the street on foot is like playing Frogger. On another note the cafes are awesome, the vibe is chill and city is noticeably young.
To get the most out of our short time (8 hours) we opted for the hop on/off boat tour only to hop off at the first stop and never return. Money not well spent. Walking the neighborhoods is where it's at. We wish we would have had a whole day or even 1 night to really get the taste of it but it still beats a layover in Atlanta any day.
There is a story here....but it's too long to type. Next time we see you ask and we'll tell. Just know we barely made it out alive, it involves a map, a train and some local color.
