Close to our hotel was a restaurant called Guts & Glory. It looked really nice, so I looked it up on Google and tried to make an online reservation. Unfortunately, it was fully booked, but with nothing better to do, Poul and I decided to give it a shot anyway. Luckily, they had a table for two upstairs.
Amsterdam is a wonderful city, and the few days we spent there just flew away. Poul and I have very different preferences, when it comes to hotel rooms. He has never stayed at a hostel in his entire life, and his worst nightmare would be to go on a backpacking trip.
The last day in Amsterdam, we got up early and went for a morning walk in the city. We had planned to visit The Anne Frank House, but the line outside was very long, so we skipped that idea. Instead we went for late breakfast at Metropolitain, which is a cute little café in the De Wallen area.
After our lunch at Vinnies, we decided to go on a canal tour. Poul and I sometimes have very different ideas regarding what’s good sightseeing. While skyline watching from a rooftop bar is my thing, Poul is more of a hop-on-hop-off-bus-kind-of-guy, but it was very hot that day in Amsterdam, so we could both agree that seeing the city from comfortable seats on a boat was a good idea.
Everything worked out, so I’m in Amsterdam with Poul now. Yesterday, we took the airport train to the central station. It was only a 20-minutes ride, and I think we paid around 10EUR for both of us in total. If you go, remember to keep your ticket as you’ll need it to check in and later check out.
