My friend Stephen is studying abroad in Amsterdam for a year and I was very excited to hangout with him while on Fall Break. He met us at the Starbucks in Schipol airport when we landed.
Stephen showed me the heart of Amsterdam as well as the Red Light District before we headed to various bars to catch up on life and how studying abroad has treated us thus far.
We went back to the sign the next morning, on the day we were leaving to head back home, in hopes that there would be less tourists…we got a little lucky!
On this trip, I was able to cross off much more on my bucket list than I anticipated and I can definitely say I cured quite a bit of my wanderlust over those 10 days of travel.
