Rembrandtplein, the Night Watch in 3D
This my last May travel post! At the end of my parents’ visit, they decided to spend a couple of days in Amsterdam. Because I had the day off and my parents had a lot of luggage, I took the train with them and spent a few hours enjoying the beautiful weather and a few sites in Amsterdam with my Mom and Dad. I have always considered Amsterdam one of the most beautiful cities I’ve ever visited, so I loved being able to walk along the canals, buy tulips, and eat poffertjes with my parents!

No smoking – marijuana or cigarettes – in the room!

The Bloemenmarkt, the world’s only floating Flower Markt – my parents bought me the tulips in the lower righthand corner!

Breaktime for poffertjes! (and with my tulips, haha)
