We have arrived in Amsterdam! But you already knew that, didn’t you? After finding the way to our apartment, we got settled in a bit, took some much-needed showers, and went out to explore the city. Given how tired we were from the flight, we didn’t do anything too heavy – mostly got the lay of the land, walked around, and of course, found a juice bar for Scott. He was quite happy after that. 🙂

Of course, it wouldn’t be a trip for me if I didn’t take lots of pictures! I haven’t taken many yet since our first day was pretty low-key, but here’s a selection of what I’ve taken so far:

Amsterdam Flat Canal

Dam Square Street Sign
I always like to take pictures of directional signs when I travel

Now that we’ve gotten a good 11-12 hours of sleep, we’re ready to get out and start doing some stuff (and we’re excited to not be jet-lagged, too). Today’s agenda includes the Van Gogh Museum, a canal cruise, and a visit to the Albert Cuyp Market. Although the weather forecast is calling for clouds, things look pretty nice right now, so hopefully it will stay that way.

As always, if you have suggestions on places to visit, restaurants, bars, etc., please comment below!
