2013 saw me headed to Amsterdam for 2 days. That’s it. 2 days. I was tagging along on a work trip, and we stayed in a youth hostel quite centrally. One of the things that the good people of the hostel offered was a free walking tour of the city. This was probably the highlight of trip.
Not only did it mean I got to hang out with about 20 of the other people from all over the world, but it meant that I saw a lot of things off the main roads, and things that I wouldn’t have seen had I done an official tour, or took myself off wandering. It was the best part of my trip, and I got to see a lot of things that not everyone would have seen. We went down alley ways into big garden squares, we wandered through a book street, and learnt about the quirky things of the city.
If you ever get to go on a walking tour, I highly recommend it. It’s definitely worth it.
