There are so many things to do in Amsterdam but my favourite would be just strolling down the streets of Amsterdam. You get to see so many things; the local cafes, the fashionable people on their chic bicycles, school kids riding bicycles with their friends, pretty doorsteps, you name it, they have it.
Another thing I realised while strolling were the traffic light poles. They were all striped in black and white and go so cohesively with the zebra crossing. I also think I noticed them a lot cause I was hanging by the poles a lot before crossing the road. See in Amsterdam, as lovely as it is, the cyclists don't follow the pedestrian traffic light that much. I swear every time the light turns green, I looked to the right and then left, TWICE, and still a cyclist will zoom past me. Please bear in mind that the amount of bicycles in Amsterdam is slightly more than the population there.
