I was fortunate enough to explore a lot of new places in the summer of 2014, and the last stop on my journey before returning to the United States was a few days spend in the Netherlands; one day in Amsterdam and one in Haarlem. After three months of museums, walking tours and other tourist endeavors, I didn’t do many of the “must-sees” during my time in these places, but mostly just walked around, taking in the sights and the feel of the cities. That being said, one day when I do return I do want to check off the “highlights” of Amsterdam and go to more museums; it’s always good to leave reasons to return to a city.

For my readers who have been to Amsterdam, do you have any suggestions for things that I absolutely *must* do the next time I am there? Let me know in the comments 🙂
