My advise is this, if you get an opportunity for a winter  break to Amsterdam definitely go for this trip.  I mixed it up with Spain so kind of got the best of both worlds.  I’m going to break this trip up into multiple posts.  Amsterdam, Barcelona, Seville & Granada.

my itinerary was:  (there was more but this is what we managed)

  • the Anne Frank house  (buy your tickets ahead)
  • World War II and the Holocaust in Amsterdam.  I booked with history walks and I highly recommend them.  Peter was very knowledgeable, great personality and brought the history alive for us.  I highly recommend this tour.    Here is the website:  http://www.historywalks.eu
  • The Resistance Museum , website:  http://www.verzetsmuseum.org/museum/en/museum
  • Dinner cruise on the canals booked with Viator.  (excellent)

    We used the bus 197 to get to the hotel from the airport.  Nice and easy.  Here are some photos from our trip.   The Superbowl was on my last night AND my hometown team the Ravens played and WON!!!   I could not stay up that late but I wore my team colors that night.  What can I say?  The old girl ain’t what she used to be!
