Amsterdam is a charming place...walking along the canals, having dinner in a cafe, a very interesting and wonderful place. Watch out for the bicycle riders, they have the right of way and will ride right over you to prove it! The coffee shops a a little interesting as well, have a your favorite latte and well, just go there and look at the menu. We definitely want to go back.
We arrived in Budapest at night, and it was simply an amazing experience. The buildings and bridges were all lit up in their splendour. A great photo opportunity. We did find many of the shop keepers to be a bit abrupt. Overall we found the city scenery very interesting.
