For years, travelling through Europe by train was on the bucketlist. So in 2013, after booking concert tickets, we decided to also travel light from London to Amsterdam, before the gig in Paris at the end of the trip.
Amsterdam being awesome was no secret to us, but it had taken a while before we finally got round to visiting. We stayed in a boutique hotel in the city, which is so easy to get around, be it walking, biking or on the canals.
Super chilled and great people, we didn't want to leave and will definitely go back. The city has a cool vibe and there's endless amounts to do at your own pace.
