The last stop of our trip was Amsterdam. One of the first things we stumbled across was the Amsterdam pride parade where the streets were packed with partying people and the floats went by on the canal. The canals themselves are spectacular and there are way more than I had pictured before going. Amsterdam also reignited my love of dutch pancakes that my childhood friend's mom used to make for us when we were kids. We didn't have many sites that we planned on visiting so we spent most of our days strolling around popping into shops and cafes. Some of the places we did visit included the Van Gogh Museum, and the Anne Frank Museum. On our last day, after a few communication mishaps, Andrea and I managed to meet up with Manav and a few friends who had just arrived in the city before embarking on their own trip across Europe. Spending time with friends in a city like Amsterdam is pretty hard to beat.
