Our room at the Bed & Breakfast
Such a beautiful place to stay! We are on Java Eiland, just across the canal from Grand Central Station in Amsterdam.
Hello from Amsterdam! Tony and I have been enjoying our time here. We have gotten to visit several museums so far, thanks to the IAmsterdam Pass, which gets us into many museums for free and onto the public transportation system as well. So far we have been to the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum (yahoo!!), and the Amsterdam Historich Museum. All of these have been very interesting, and we have also walked around quite a bit of the city and enjoyed the beautiful scenery. All of the canals of Amsterdam make it quite the picturesque area. Also, because the city is so far north, the sun doesnít set until around 10:30 pm, and it stays twilight until around 11.
Although we are enjoying ourselves so much here, we are both finding that we are quite exhausted from our travels. We are really looking forward to some down-time in TN before we start getting settled in that area. So, next time from HOME!!!
