PART V: AMSTERDAM.

Train. Berlin >>> Amsterdam. We were paired in our compartment with the two grumpiest old men on the planet, so we spent most of our time in the world’s sexiest dining car. Superlative voyage.

.

At Canal House. My new rule is I only stay in hotels that have portraits of Coco Rocha in the bedrooms and Maarten Baas in the dining area.

WK Amsterdam.

Blue skies wherever we went…

Spontaneous rockabilly throwdown in the street outside Café Brandon. That car, on those streets…?!

Cheers!
