I didn’t fall asleep until around 05:00 and I woke up at 08:00 to get ready and check out. I was off to a fantastic start. I drop my suitcase in the luggage room and got on a tram that I wasn’t sure of where it was going. I figured I’d end up somewhere because everywhere is somewhere. What’s the worst that could happen? I get off at a stop and walk for a few minutes looking in all the little shops and cafes. I find a coffee shop to sit in and call my mom and a friend. That took up a good three hours. I walked for a couple more hours in no certain direction.
The house boats in Amsterdam are so small and nice. I would love to have one for the summer but I’m not quite sure how the house boat property nonsense is here.
I got on a tram that I thought was going in the direction of the hotel I was staying at. I ended up even further away than I was to start with. Tried it again. I finally make it back to the hotel to pick up my suitcase. I get some food and get an Uber to Amsterdam Centraal because I wasn’t about to get on another tram and get lost when I actually have somewhere to be. My next stop is Rotterdam. Again. I’m finally on the train and I am looking forward to sleeping. It’s been a tiring day and I still don’t feel well.
