This trip has been full of rain, but it hasn’t got my sprits down yet. Even with all the rain, still ended up visiting enough of Amsterdam to be satisfied. This time around I was much more rested than the last few city changes, probably because I took the train from Paris to Amsterdam this time around. Taking Thalys’s high speed rail is always a joy. It’s a 3 hour ride so that’s a long enough nap, plus the previous night’s sleep. I was well rested and ready to spend the rest of the day exploring Amsterdam, once I arrived.
