Well, that was my first attempt at clickbait, because I never actually got stoned in Amsterdam! (although I did smell weed everywhere).
I had quite an eye-opening experience in the one day I got to spend in Amsterdam! For starters, it was the only capital that looked exactly like all the pictures I saw when I first started researching about it.
Everyone rode on bikes, and they were all pretty reckless (have you ever heard of texting while biking). I even saw a man holding a baby in one hand and riding his bike with the other.
Renting a van and going through the tight European alleyways was quite the experience for us. Our van was a right-hand drive that we got from London, and the second we entered Paris all the roads became left-hand drive! It also didn’t help that people didn’t seem to have any regard for the law or their own safety in many of these countries.
Our first stop in Amsterdam was the “I amsterdam” sign. It was a lot of fun to take pictures with. We explored Museumsplein, as well as the canals and the cute houses. Then we went to the Royal Palace, and took a look at the wonderful shopping area that was nearby.
The most interesting thing I experienced here was just how every souvenir shop in the area was focused on selling weed related items. It was quite funny. I wish I could’ve gotten on a boat to experience the canals. Overall, I had an amazing time here, even though it got pretty chilly.
Tot ziens, Amsterdam!
