Amsterdam, Day 1: Dinner And Not Much Else

Since our flight was scheduled to leave late afternoon, it didn't really leave us much time to do anything this evening.

We did find that our choice of hotel left much to be desired - the city centre was pretty much fully booked when we tried to get rooms, so instead of booking at the airport (which is around a 20 minute train ride away) we thought we'd be clever and get one as close to Amsterdam as possible. In hindsight this was a bad decision since the airport had better transport links to and from central - so much so that we ended up taking a shuttle to the airport and grabbing a train from there!

We managed to find a nice little Indonesian restaurant in which to eat dinner. It was cheap too, coming to around €20 per head. The rest of the evening was spent wondering round the Dam Square/Damrak area and getting our bearings. We decided to make our way back early in order to have an early start the next day.
