Day 19-Oct 11-Tues-Amsterdam, The Netherlands
After sailing all night, we arrived in Amsterdam while we were eating breakfast. We were aboard canal cruisers by 9am, followed by a long guided walk through the city. This is our last day and night aboard the River Adagio. Early tomorrow morning, we will board a bus to Delft and then on to Bruges, Belgium for the last three days of our journey.

Amsterdam is a city of WATER! They sail in boats and live on boats!
Amsterdam is a city of BICYCLES! They haul children or groceries, or briefcases; then they park their bikes in parking garages! Or in a mad pile wherever there is a smidgen of space! Watch where you step as you don’t have a chance if you wander into their path.
Amsterdam is a city of beautiful skylines and big cheeses, namely Gouda and Edam.
And Amsterdam is the city of Vermeer, Rembrandt and Van Gogh and the Rijksmuseum.
Anne Frank hid from the Nazi occupation in the city for years and her hiding place is a museum.
Ciao for now!
