Holland (January 2015)

We drove from Antwerp to Amsterdam and stayed three nights in Amsterdam.

Amsterdam (3 nights)

Our arrival in Amsterdam was delayed somewhat trying to navigate Rotterdam as our GPS maps weren’t up to date with the roadworks which made following the directions given by the GPS almost impossible.

By now we were just about holidayed out. Our Holiday Inn was close to Schiphol Airport and the weather was inclement so we didn’t venture into the heart of Amsterdam.

Each morning we waited for the weather to clear, which it didn’t, so we caught a taxi to the local shops. The first time walking back to the Holiday Inn it started to rain heavily half way between the shops and the motel and we ended up getting drenched.

The second time, when we wanted to go back to the motel, we looked for a taxi rank and couldn’t find one. When we inquired, we were informed that the nearest taxi rank was at the railway station which was on the other side of our motel. We ended up buying some cheap umbrellas and walking back to the motel in the rain.
