Trying to write whilst overseas was a failure because you’re too busy being overseas and going on adventures to write for 10 minutes every night, plus you have to search for wi-fi. Next time when I’m on holiday or even living overseas this will probably prove a better idea.
I will probably keep posting pictures here to avoid spamming my regular tumblr and I might write a few things too.
Our first day in Amsterdam was a day trip up from Heerhugowaard where we’d been staying with Jarrad’s Aunt, Uncle and cousins. We’d planned on going into Alkmaar originally but decided to spontaneously catch the train to Amsterdam instead. We rode bicycles from Heerhugowaard to Alkmaar which was terrifying as my bicycle is normally much lower and this one was so different to the one I’m used to.
We rode to Alkmaar and then caught the train to Amsterdam, arriving at 12. We had a quick walk around before going to ‘The Amsterdam Dungeon’. We were there for about an hour. Then we went to lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe. We’d originally planned on going to a Vegetarian restaurant I’d looked up on the train but we discovered it was only open for dinner.
After our lunch we decided we should probably head back to Heerhugowaard. We walked back to the train station whilst checking out a few shops along the way. We caught the 6:30 train and ended up getting home at 7:40.
