Beautiful day today, the sun is out and skies are clear. It is now 15:00 and it has reached the maximum temperature of 17 degrees, but they feel much warmer than that. At one stage I didn’t think I would ever get the shorts out of the bag, but that day has come.

Not a lot done today. There is only so much food and drink I can force down my gullet. So just walked and walked around the city. In the morning we walked around the Jordaan District, which is right adjacent to the main part of the city, but a world away in terms of peace and quiet. Lee-ann and I then departed our ways; and I had a refreshing ale before once again tramping around the old part of the city. I think I have covered every square inch of this place, so I have pulled stumps early and headed back to the hotel.

We are back to “can’t swing a cat territory” here in Amsterdam. But I believe this is par for the course in this city, unless you want to pay some serious cash. So much so that I can’t get out of bed from my side and I must exit at the foot of the bed and we have to take turns in having a shower and getting dressed.

Well as I said, not much to report. Tomorrow we travel to Brussels.
