Amsterdam in less than 24 hours? I got you.
We had a realllly tight itinerary, but still wanted to see Amsterdam. So from Porto, we flew to Schiphol airport, arriving close to midnight. It was early April, but Amsterdam was freezing. Add to that, it was raining. Mobile data was so bad it took us a while to get an Uber.
But it was all worth it. Our friend, who arrived earlier in the day, greeted us with some homecooked meal of pancit canton and spam he bought from the grocery store. And, the airbnb — despite making us take three flights of stairs — was gorgeous and cozy! It was the perfect place to settle down amid the downpour outside.
Tired, we decided to sleep in and wake up early the next day to check the city.
