Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Hi Love Bugs! I am currently blogging to you from a train en route to Paris! Oui Oui! We spent two amazing days exploring Amsterdam, and let me tell you–I absolutely loved it. The city is gorgeous. I 100% believe the world has judged Amsterdam too quickly. I am guilty of it myself. The city is surrounded by canals, beautiful row houses, and wonderful shops with so much character and beautiful architecture overflowing into the streets. Before landing in Amsterdam, three words popped into my head about the city…what are they you ask? Well here, it goes: 1) Weed 2) Prostitutes in the Red Light District, 3) Canals. I owe an apology to the city of Amsterdam. I am sorry and I love you! Those words will never pop into my head again. My list has changed to: 1) Bikes on Bikes on Bikes 2) Pancakes and French fries, 3) Cute neighborhoods and the world’s most friendliest people. SO that was more than 4, but I have so many great things to say about Amsterdam.¬†Dutch people are wonderful, and so willing to help. We harp too much on the negative when it comes to Amsterdam. To be perfectly honest, I never once felt threatened while walking around at night. We walked along the Red Light District, went into some Coffee Shops, and honestly enjoyed our time being in the moment. We took the train, and walked around the city at midnight. Never once were we scared. I have felt more scared walking around my hometown of West Palm Beach at night over Amsterdam. Amsterdam is an amazing city, and I highly recommend everyone make a trip to see how charming it truly is.

Is it just me or does this look like a theme from a Disney movie? It is so pretty!
