Excited to have a real king bed and not a pull out couch for the weekend!
After settling into our very nice room, we began bundling up to brave the cold weather. We were very surprised that it was a tiny bit colder than London, but we were sure to pack extra layers! (the little that we had) We began a stroll down the street to Leidseplein Square, the famous square near our hotel. There was a lot going on, and there were a ton of people! You could definitely tell that this is where A LOT of students who are studying abroad go on the weekends.
Since we had not really had dinner, we got a quick bite to eat. It was a great little place called 'Wok and Walk.' I have to admit, that having been to Amsterdam before and seeing this place, I kind of always wanted to eat there. It looked so good and it was SO busy! Since most of the pubs and bars weren't serving food anymore, it worked out in my favor. T and I decided to split a little box straight from the Wok.
Rice noodles, chicken broccoli, in a sweet and sour sauce
Yup... we definitely demolished that!
A great little spot for late night eating!
We then headed back to Leidseplein Square to have a few beers and people watch! We watched many many interesting people walk by, enjoyed the atmosphere, and enjoyed a few beers!
We then decided to go walk around the city. We even ventured to the famous 'Red Light District.' Around 2:30am, we finally headed back to our hotel room, plopped into our comfortable bed, and got some much needed rest to prepare for the following day in Amsterdam!
