Day Two - Amsterdam
Although it was day 2 we still hadn't slept and we had some serious miles to go to get to Amsterdam but hey this was what it was all about.
It's very true what they say the Netherlands are flat! Either side of the motorway was green field after green field with the odd windmill here are and there. They were the old quaint style ones, really pretty but there's also hundreds of wind turbines soaring into the sky over looking the land. I quite like them, the rotation of the blades was quite soothing. ..slow and steady.
We arrived at the campsite and it didn't take long to set up so we took the metro into the city. The first stop was The Sex Museum which I have to admit was my first....I. mean third time going but it didn't take much persuasion to get the others there! It's a good laugh and some weird stuff going on in there.
There is a strong smell of cannabis wafting around here and there in the streets. We didn't go into the cafes but enjoyed the odd horse and cart going by as we strolled past relaxed people supping on Pilsner. There were soo many frites (chip) stalls where they are served with a dollop of mayonnaise AND tomato sauce. The food looked amazing.
By six we were shattered and back at the camp. I know I fell asleep about nine pm and slept like a baby thanks to the inflatable matress and my ear plugs.
