Canal Bike Tours, Amsterdam
Favorite thing: You must hire a canal bike for a different view of Amsterdam. We were armed with a wine, snacks and a map before setting out on the high waters. It was an excellent way to explore and good exercise too! There's a lot to see from the canals, I especially liked seeing all the house boats - I could definitely live like that!
Take a ride and see the city from the water. I was lucky I had my friends from Middelburg. Well, I was treated a very detailed and interesting history of Amsterdam. They showed me the little details of the city. I can say the trip was only one day, just to short.
Fondest memory: I was walking along and I almost got hit by a bike rider. If it was not for Elisabeth warning me I am have been in the hospital. I am not used to bikes in Illinois, we live in to big of an area to ride bikes in my state. To tell my story, as we came up to a intersection, we were waiting for the light to change so we could talk across the street. When the light changed,I stepped onto the bike road here comes a bike rider. I did not know to look, I thought they would slow down and give this American the right of way. Wrong, they have the right of way. Well Elisabeth saved me, maybe some broken bones and a ruined trip to Europe. I now have more respect for bike riders when I travel any where not.
