About a year ago I was able to do a weekend trip to Amsterdam from Barcelona. It was my first time in the Netherlands and I honestly thought Amsterdam was gonna be just another Vegas. A dirty, wild, party city with grimmy hookers and gnarly drugs everywhere. I'm not saying you don't see any of that, but I was truly amazed at how beautiful and elegant the city was. The architecture and canals are absolutely jaw dropping in person. Can't wait to get back there.
