On our second visit to Amsterdam, the city won our hearts. Maybe it was because our previous trip was a whirlwind, touristy day that included a sketchy dungeon tour, no sleep, and getting accosted by a coked-out man at 6am. Maybe it was because during this trip we stayed with dear friends and their adorable baby. Maybe it was because this trip was about charming streets, pizza, Dutch pancakes, boat rides, long runs through the park, art, and great shopping. Whatever it was that sealed the deal, Amsterdam has become one of our favorite cities.
