Our first stop in The Netherlands was of course, Amsterdam. We decided to get out of the car for a few days, and we knew there was a lot to see, so we booked a hotel for three nights. The hotel wasn’t anything special, but we were just outside of Vondelpark, which meant a slightly longer, but more scenic walk in to the centre. Our first impression, wow, thats a lot of bikes! We were blown away by the sheer quantity, we knew Dam was the city of bikes, but my god, it really was the city of bikes! At first it seemed like an amazing idea, but after watching a few near misses, we realised that to ride a bike in Amsterdam, you have to be pretty fearless.
