The Netherlands Day 1-2

So I kind of dropped off the face of the earth for a little bit here; but just came back from my trip to the Netherlands and I'm so excited to share my experience with you all! It's been a jam packed 7 days visiting 5 cities so I'll try not to ramble on.

Our first day started bright and early and we arrived in Amsterdam during lunch time. We first visited this beautiful windmill called Molen van Sloten which included a guided tour and we then proceeded to the city centre of Amsterdam. This was probably the city I was looking forward to the most and it was pretty good. Did it live up the hype? Yes and no. It is definitely a beautiful city with incredible architecture though I wished I had more time to visit some art galleries as it had quite a few interesting ones. The last notable thing we did on our first day was a scavenger hunt in the city centre which really helped us see all the sights in Amsterdam and learn a little bit on the way too.

We started our second day in the city centre again. We had some free time roaming the city and shopping and then the group collected together to go on a boat tour along the canals of the city. This was definitely one of the highlights of the trip; I'd definitely recommend it. We ended our day and then went out to explore the nightlife the city is so well known for! It did not disappoint :)
