Woke up early, fully clothed with shoes on to avoid bedbugs, we booked it over to the new hostel, The Flying Pig. Katie had time here at this same hostel about 10 years ago. It was amazing! Huge lounge area, bar and over a hundred backpackers AND a free breakfast!
Took another free tour through Amsterdam, but realized there was not that many historical buildings as in Berlin and left the tour half-way through.
Due to weather, we stayed indoors and visited the Van Gogh museum and the coffeeshop from Ocean's 12 (major highlight of the trip to be at the same spot as Brad Pitt, George Cloney and Matt Damon).
Spent most of this day and the next stuffing ourselves with whatever food we craved because it was all at our disposal on the streets until late into the night. Had beers with some locals at a tiny bar with over 150 different kinds of beer.
When we caught our train to Paris, our packs felt heavier but it might have just been our feet.
