It was our last day in Amsterdam so we woke up early, ready to conquer the city once again. We rode the train to Zaandam, a nearby city of Amsterdam to go shopping at Primark. lol The Primark store in downtown Amsterdam was closed at that time so we went to the nearest store that we could find. We’re so glad that we did because we saw these cute buildings when we got out of the train station.

It was our second day in Amsterdam and our fourteenth day in Europe so we had to catch up with a lot of work. We went out at around noon and went straight to the I amsterdam sign in front of the Rijksmuseum. We didn’t get a good photo because there were a gazillion people taking photos of themselves as well. lol It was definitely a tourist trap but we couldn’t go to Amsterdam and not go to the Iamsterdam sign so whatever.

After spending twelve days in England, we went on our way to what became one of my favorite cities in the world, Amsterdam.
I didn’t think that I’d enjoy this city more than Rome or Venice or even Paris but it was just so full of culture and I absolutely enjoyed the feel of the city!
We took the Eurostar train from London St. Pancras to Bruxelles-Midi Station and took the Thalys train from Bruxelles-Midi to Amsterdam Centraal Station. The whole trip took around 4 hours and it was really convenient. Just arrive 30 minutes before your departure to give time for immigration and baggage checks. I booked our tickets a few weeks before our trip and got it for GBP 78 each. It would’ve been cheaper if we got it a few months before.
