Wednesday 11th November
Out Wednesday 11th November on an early BA flight our first time with hand luggage only!
Once checked in we went for a wander around the museum quarter and vondel park, in the evening went to the old town. Nice steak meal and an interesting walk around the red light district, beautiful and not so beautiful girls. Made me realise how nannified our country has become, everyone cycles, no one wears a helmet even on scooters and are completely open about sex and drugs. Took some night pics.
Sunny but fresh.
Tram & foot tour, markets, coffee, cake, canals and repeat. Evening photo walk and dinner at a tapas bar which was just ok.
Tram & walk to Anne franks huis, massive queue so decided to have some coffee & cake and a canal trip instead, this was very nice. More walking and a lovely lunch in a Thai restaurant in the Joordan quarter. Started to rain so got the tram back to the hotel. Superb evening meal at Humphreys, 3 courses, 2 beers & 2 wines & coffee €70 fantastic.
Tram, walking, coffee, cake, nice food, churches, redlight district (again), drug shops but not a chemists, bikes and more bikes, but what a lovely place!
Arrived at the airport in plenty of time, security scare at Gatwick meant flight delayed by 2.5 hours, home very late 🙁
