    Amsterdam Things to Do

    I always found it droll travelers who are whisking their way across Europe and barely spend two days in Amsterdam. Sure there are a lot of strange smells but the Dutch are very pragmatic and welcoming to their masses of visitors. Take the VVV. I was benefited from this well run government outfit for lodging, maps, and information about the local...

The style of the Vleeshal is...

    This restaurant, called Checkpoint Charlie (what's in a name?), is located right along the dike between Enkhuizen and Lelystad, the Houtribdijk, a very unlikely spot for a restaurant. Unfortunately, it was closed when we arrived, so we didn't get the chance to eat something here.
