Day 4: Monday, September 11

Wandering Through Amsterdam

There was no real set agenda for today. We took a totally meandering route, making it up as we went along. It was a real challenge today, though, as Amsterdam was having some serious rain and wind… all day long. We braved the pouring rain and still saw a lot before heading back to the hotel for the evening.

Now… where did I put my bike??

We spent quite a bit of time at Dam Square, one of the main squares of the city:

Fountain near Dam Square
The National Monument in Dam Square, central Amsterdam

We stopped for lunch at a restaurant called Ter Marsch & Co, located on Vijzelstraat 4 at Singel. The food was great!:

After lunch we toured through the Flower Market (Bloemenmarkt) on Singel on our way back to the hotel:

What we found at the Flower Market
Charming architecture

And… a stop at Puccini Bomboni chocolate shop. The aroma of rich chocolate was impossible to ignore:

Vince on the canal
Nice houseboat on the canal
Very peaceful here
Later, back at the hotel. This is what becomes of too much chocolate…

Fingers crossed for less rain tomorrow!
