February break went too quickly! After a few days in Moscow, I flew into Amsterdam to meet up with friends from back home. We stayed in Clink Noord, a warehouse now hip hostel, just a ferry ride away from the city center. I highly recommend the Van Gogh museum and Anne Frank House. At night we dared ourselves to do something new and ended up at a Red Light District sex show.
My friend is studying abroad in Maastricht so we took the train down and then left for Bruges in the morning. This Belgian town has the most beautiful architecture, swans serenely swimming in the river, and endless chocolate shops. An ideal weekend trip to take from Paris!
