What to do in Amsterdam?

I was thinking of a post to do this week and then came up with this. I would have loved to have had a simple list of things that I needed to do whilst I was there. So I thought, why not just make one?

1. Anne Frank House
If you are interested in learning more about what happened in Amsterdam during WW2 then it is a must to go and see. In fact, even if you aren't, still go and have a look as there is so much to learn not only what happened, but also gives you perspective and helps you to learn about yourself as a person and not to take things for granted... especially freedom!

2. I Amsterdam Sign
There are 2 signs that you can visit. The first is as you arrive at Schipol Aiport outside the main doors. The second is near the Van Gogh museum. Even though it can get quite busy, we managed to get a couple of good pictures as well as the word 'DAM' with each of us in for a photo. It is a very tourist thing to do, but can make for some great photos!

3. Canal Cruise
This is the best way to see Amsterdam and the canals from a different perspective and the quickest. You can either get a hop on and hop off pass for 24 hours that allows you to see both the canal and the area when you stop off. The other option is to get a 1 hour cruise and see the main areas along the canal whilst being told more about the history of the city.

I hope this have given you a very brief overview of the things to do in Amsterdam if you are only there for a couple of days and want to do the main places. Be prepared next week for a little surprise on the blog and something a little different to normal!

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed
