The first place we went was Amsterdam. Our journey went like this:
day one: We explored the city, went to eat at a cute little place called Pancakes!, checked out some vintage shops, and just took in the beautiful canal houses and bridges, especially as they lit up in the evening. We found a great vegetarian/vegan cafe for dinner, de bolhoed.
day two: we headed over to Keukenhof and spent about 8 hours there, wandering all the beautiful tulips! This was one of the highlights of the trip, and something I can cross off of my bucket list :)
day three: We took a canal cruise, explored the city on foot some more, found an outdoor street market, and had beers at a pub inside and old windmill, Brouwerij't IJ. For dinner we ate at the best Indian restaurant I think I've ever had (sorry didn't get the name :/) and watched some live music from street performers.
day five: visited the Rijksmuseum, sat and relaxed down by the canal, got some fondue for dinner.
day 6: we rode the Thalys train over to Paris!
