Itinerary Overview

The dutch trip happens to be the most sort after in terms of learning and accepting and it all started with a cool bla bla car from Hamburg to Amsterdam 

Amsterdam - I reached the city in wee hours around 6 am with the most amazing car ride ever however upon reaching the center everything seems to be quite and cold but about an hour later the center was buzzing with bands and in no time people gathered started dancing, shouting, soon I realize that I am in middle of gay pride.

Haarlem - The  Haarlem is the seat of the city's government. It was built in the 14th century replacing the Count's castle. Its known for its medieval European architecture and serene ponds in city best way to get here are trains for 25 Euros from Amsterdam
