On Tuesday we boarded the Thalys train early in the morning with an eye on spending the day in Amsterdam. Luckily as holders of a Eurail Flexi Pass, it was extremely easy to take a quick day trip to the famous canal city of the Netherlands.

Walking through the city with church bells ringing and canal boats drifting past was a scene out of a novel but we were the main characters.
