After a chilled night of playing drinking games in a Rhine Valley castle, it was onto our penultimate stop; Amsterdam!
One thing I was really looking forward to on this tour was the cheese and clog demonstration (I know, how cheesy of me). So when we arrived at this quaint cheese and clog shop on the way to Amsterdam, I was so excited to try on the clogs and of course, sample the cheese! The guide was so hilarious, and definitely added that extra special touch to the demonstration. After our cheesy and cloggy encounter, we headed back onto the coach and made our way to our final hostel on the tour – Stayokay Zeeburg.
After checking in and dropping our luggage off, Marshall took us for a short walking tour of the city centre. Luckily whilst we were there, there was a carnival in Dam Square, so we all took the opportunity to have a go on the rides before exploring the streets. We then visited the famous Condom Shop to quickly grab some souvenirs before heading to a sex show (aha when in Amsterdam).
The sex show was such a funny experience! I won’t go into too much detail, but let’s say it was definitely a night to remember! It was also one of the guy’s birthdays on our trip, and let’s just say he got the night of his life! After a tour of the Red Light District, we all headed back to the hostel and called it a night.
The next day, we all split off into groups to explore the city. A few people went to the Anne Frank Museum, whilst me and the girls decided to do a bit of shopping! After a relaxing day with the girls, that night we all headed to a Chinese buffet on the river for a farewell dinner before boarding a sightseeing canal cruise. It was then onto the clubs where we all got merry (some more than others) and spent our last family night together.
Amsterdam definitely lived up to everyone’s expectations, and with some of us waking up not feeling to great, it was onto Bruges for chocolate, castles and our final goodbyes!
