So after about 31 hours of flying, waiting and then flying some more, I am now in Amsterdam. Spent our morning wondering around the inner city, it's so cool - especially as someone who comes from such a young country with not nearly the amount of history that Europe has. I think our plan for the afternoon is to check out the Van Gogh museum and maybe the red light district later.
On a side note, the weed culture here is crazy. I get the feeling that it's played up for tourists (I've only noticed marijuana related stuff in tourist shops) but still. It's a bit of a culture shock to see hash products and seeds being sold so openly.
