Netherlands: Road Trip, Amsterdam

I am sorely disappointed that I did not get a stamp in my passport traveling through the Eurotunnel in to France. Although we did drive through France and Belgium, I don’t think I can legitimately include those countries on my list of those visited. High speed motorway travel doesn’t count. Eight hours after leaving our home in England, we arrived safe and sound in Amsterdam. Wearing ear plugs on long trips on motorways is key. They are an essential piece of kit in the Lotus.

We walked into Amsterdam for a late night dinner at one of the surprisingly abundant Argentinian (and even one Uruguayan) steak houses. Oh the beef was good! It tasted like American beef. Tired from the drive and our long late night walk through the city, full of food, we slept like the dead.
