Amsterdam (13th July)

Tuesday, August 21st, 2012

It was time to return to Amsterdam. We used to go regularly and really enjoyed but then it seemed to lose its way, bars weren’t moving with the times, the hotels were getting more and more expensive and the number of hen/stag parties increased on each visit. Nothing has changed really, except we found a really nice hotel (Doubletree by Hilton) which is a newly built hotel near the station. Some bars have been refurbished but they still lack the atmosphere (and number of people) of before. Needless to say it also rained. Might revisit in another five years.
