Although we didn’t travel during their famous Tulip season we did visit a tulip store. I had read that most of the bulbs they sell are a scam, they don’t grow or there’s less in the bag than stated. So we didn’t buy any but it was nice to see all the varieties available.
These house boats are all over the main canals. Each one is unique and decorated differently. As you can see in this photo they often have smaller boats attached that they use for travel and the house boat mostly stays in place all year long.
This is dam square. Lots of performers and protests in this area. It’s a great spot for people watching.
Last and not least dinner! We had the most amazing food at a tiny boutique like restaurant that we found on tripadvisor at the last minute. Pictured are the stairs to the bathroom. All the stairs in Amsterdam were like this. We don’t advise this city for elderly people or those afraid of heights. This staircase was about 25 feet long and winding.
