Location: Amsterdam, Netherlands.
My thoughts on Amersterdam:
It almost felt like going to 2 places. During the day, Amsterdam is a lovely little city. Bikes and bikers are everywhere. My guess is probably 10 bikes for every car I saw. The city itself is built on a system of canals, so there are a lot of little bridges and pathways near the water. Boats everywhere too. I saw one guy on a boat with his friends, had a small grill, drinks and picnic while cruising around. Art around every corner. No 2 buildings were designed the same way, each one had its own face. Every person we met was really chill for the most part too. But that may be for other reasons.
Night time was probably everything you imagined. I was amazed at the number of tourists who brought their kids with them, which was more than zero. Eye-opening stuff.
