We followed the directions and got off at our stop . . . but got a bit confused as to which direction to walk .
The above is a put together by the hotel we stayed in while we were there.
So from the time we landed until we were knocking on the door of the hotel was less than an hour. We had taken a train and a tram with very short walks and brief waiting times. I loved that! I know how UNintegrated transportation is if one arrives at Glasow airport.
We walked/took a tram everywhere on this trip. My poor feet suffered. I am unused to walking quite so much. I should walk more.
The other mode of transportation in Amsterdam are the canals or grachten (plural of the word gracht). Boats are still a viable form of transportation in Amsterdam though there is no public system on the canal. If you want a boat ride, you're going to have to make friends with a boat owner OR go pay to go on a canal tour.
We did that! We followed the advice of the Lonely Planet guide and went to Boom Chicago on Leiseplein where we booked passage for a boat tour the following day.
