Day 13: Had the best eggs benny at George cafe. Asked for Salmon but both ended up with Ham because apparently with salmon it's called eggs Norwegian? Got a paddle boat and cruised around the canals of Amsterdam. Got pretty sunburnt and ran into a few walls. There was so many little houseboats anchored to the edges of the canals. Would be cool to stay in one next time
Day Went to Awakenings Festival just outside Amsterdam. Full of techno music and the cheapest drugs and nicest people ever. People at just so much more willing to help you over here, unsure if it's because we are Aussie or they are just generally nice.
Day Picnic with little friend in Vondelpark with cheese and Australian wine 😍 got swooped on by birds and people in the park were playing music out of massive king street style speakers. Had a chunk of Brie as big as my hand, heaven!
Day No one else at the whole festival had a felt hat (weird because every second person in Australia wears one). They all seemed so shocked by it. So many people wanted to touch it/ said 'admire de hoot' or something similar haha
Day 9: Had a picnic lunch with soup (zucchini, Parmesan, basil, garlic, maybe potato?, chilli, maybe cumin? Or paprika? with sunflower seeds and pepitas on top). Watched Asians get stuck in the water fountain
Day 9: Bought tickets online for the Vincent Van Gough museum and saved about 2 hours of lining up. Took some sneaky photos of the art, although I'm not an art fan his paintings are so amazing. Didn't know he painted using like brush strokes to make a whole picture.. 26/6/15
