A September 1999 trip to Amsterdam by HHiker

Quote: Flew into Amsterdam and after a few days took the bus to Paris and on to London then to Edinbourgh where we rented a car and toured Scotland over to Belfast and all of Ireland before busing back to Amsterdam for 2 weeks of R and R.While there, we took a private boat tour of the harbor and canals. A walking tour of the "Old" section is recommended as well as the Art Deco sauna. Dutch bars, off the Rembrantsplein are fun. The laughter, song, and music are great. At 100 Amstel is the best Irish Pub in my book...Mulligans.
