Amsterdam Weekend Fun

Having a sunny day here in Netherlands for quite the whole day is a real blessing. We were lucky to have it on that Saturday when we planned to go around the city of Amsterdam. We were able to walk around without problem, to enjoy the attractions, the canal cruise,museums, and the rest.

Although it was sunny, it was still having fresh breeze,thus I was really lucky to have my jacket with me. Along the course of the day, the activities continue and the energy started to get turned on and the heat could be felt. However, so long as we were under the shadows, without the direct hit of the sun rays, it was still a bit cold.

The Amsterdam experience started right after we arrived at the central station (train) of the city with a single train trip of about an hour and a half from my domicile city, Nijmegen. It was a busy day, as expected, in the busy city where everyone meets/ends up in Europe: Amsterdam!
