Visit to Zandvoort and Amsterdam, Holland

Last weekend Kerstin and I decided to go to Holland, so that she would have some kind of proper holiday as well. Her older brother had kindly loaned her his car and we drove to Zandvoort near Haarlem in Holland. It took us just 4 hours, maybe a little less. We spent a nice afternoon walking on the beach and then the following day took the train into Amsterdam. We spent the day there walking round and generally chilling out and watching the world go by. We took loads of photos which I will put on the internet when I get back to the UK.

For those who have known me for a long time, you will be surprised to know that it was my first visit to Amsterdam, and in fact Holland too. With only a day there we didn’t really know what to do with our limited time. We settled on not trying to do any of the museums or getting stoned either, but just enjoying the atmosphere and chilling out whilst wondering around the centre of the city. I loved the place with it’s bustling little markets, beautiful canals and stunning architecture. The Red Light District was a real opener, and I was quite shocked to see everything that I had previously heard about, but never experienced “in the flesh” as it were, or more appropriately, seen personally!
