Amsterdam

Checking out the pulse of Amsterdam and climbing Excalibur

We had one big goal for our visit to the Netherlands; to climb one of the worlds tallest artificial climbing walls, Excalibur in Groningen. 

We had seen so many pictures of Excalibur on social media, so we had to see it live and test it. It was fun, high and windy! It was an exciting experience, and both of us made it to the top.

We stayed at a campsite near Groningen during our whole stay in the Netherlands. Several campsites close to Amsterdam was full or had tricky access, so we decided to drive for a while and then take the train to the city centre of Amsterdam.

The pulse was as always high in Amsterdam. We spent the day walking around, shopping a little bit and trying out a few restaurants and bars.

We got these pictures from a nice man, Frank, who drove by us on our way to Groningen.
