Amsterdam was the first stop of my 2013 2-week Europe trip. It was one of the best trips of my life as I was lucky to have travelled with my longtime Taiwan bestie, C, and my younger sister, Ju.
We picked Amsterdam as a meeting point before we embarked on our journey to Spain and Portugal (click to see my trip report). Even though we had, overall, 3 full days in Amsterdam, we didn’t cram too many tourists attractions in our itinerary as it was mainly a stopover to overcome our jet-lag. We only had three main things that we wanted to see: the windmills, “coffee shops” and the red light district.
