Day 75 and 76  and 77…                       Still in Amsterdam

This morning we took our bikes back to the hire shop and caught the train into Amstedam central which takes about  about 15 minutes. We did a slow walk around as much as we could see and do, took a one hour boat ride around the canals, which was good but very hot.  Europe is experiencing an unusual heatwave for this time of the year and it is       ‘ hot ! ‘ even for us … We stayed in the city until about 7:30pm then headed home.

The next day we walked around our area again and visited s few of the sights, it was a very hot day so about 3:00 we caught the punt back across the river and walked back home for a beer ……..

Today we had a very lazy day preparing ourselves for heading off in the morning to our final destination Hamburg, where we left and have not been back to for 45 years !!! Wow, that’s a bloody long time …….
