Yes ! Yet another trip for 2 countries and 2 cities in my second euro trip.

I started at 4:10 Pm from Dusseldorf Germany and reached Amsterdam at around 8:00 PM.

I always check multiple blogs whenever i plan for any destination. And while reading blogs i specially search for all the places and a little description about the place so that i can list if i want to go and explore that place or not. Considering that in mind i am providing the list of places with limited description.Hope you all find it relevant. :)

1.) How to reach :- It's too easy to reach anywhere in Europe. There are lots of option for travelling from one place to another. Two options which i found best among all is FLIXBUS and OMIO. For best experience it's always good to download the app. They will notify you time to time. With Flixbus you can do bus booking only and you can find all buses at minimal cost. With OMIO you can check out all available options like bus, train or Air. It will give best option with minimal price.

2.) Place to stay :- HOSTELWORLD , one of the best and reliable app which i found among all available apps and sites. I have visited three countries and 8 cities before Europe with the help of Hostelworld. I used to read reviews and based on that i booked hostels and Believe me none of the mentioned thing i found mismatched with the actual.

3.) Transportation with in City :- Its EUROPE, you need not to worry about transport. In mostly all cities in Europe you will get public transport which is cost effective as well as time saving. You will get one day , two day or weekly pass for public transportation which you can use for almost all public transport. And i think this makes EUROPE more easy and convenient for Travel over Other countries like US.

4.) Places to cover in both the cities :- Below are the places which i have covered in two cities :-

Day 1:-

a.) The Amsterdam Dungeon :- 500 years of history brought together in about 80 minutes ,Time is 11 AM-6 PM.

b.) Rijksmuseum, Museumstraat :- Museum

c.) Begijnhof, Nieuwezijds :- It is estimated that it was built by the end of the 14th century. It used to be a home to the beguines (religious women). These women lived like nuns but were more independent and had more freedom. Today it is a beautiful place of peace and quiet in the very heart of Amsterdam. Its houses are occupied by older single women now.
