History and Heineken

Anne Frank House

Anne Frank House

Today’s main feature was the Anne Frank House. (Unfortunately there is absolutely no photography, so we cannot show you more.) This is a must see if you ever go to Amsterdam, but expect to wait in line.  After our 2 hours, we finally got in. So worth it. We took the time to watch the movie as a refresher before coming which was a good idea. Once seeing the story and then seeing the actual place and writings the emotions you can feel are amazing. I cannot say enough about this place. And remember…this is the history of only one person…of millions of people.

Just a quick note on the Anne Frank House compared to my dads home. His place is literally right across the canal from where the Frank family was in hiding. I personally find that amazing.

Once we were done with the Anne Frank tour we were starving so we got hot panini’s and coffee to get a kick start. Off to the next attraction on our (more my) list…the Heineken Brewery!

On the way there, we stopped in one of the many churches to take few pictures….De Krijtberg Church.

Once we made it over the to brewery, Pamela decided she did not to go through and ended up waiting a cafe on the corner. Jokingly I said “See you in an hour!”  Well…after and hour-and-a-half, made my way out finding her waiting outside of the doors. I was doing pretty good after the beers and earning my “Heineken Draught Certificate”, and Pamela was also fine after her snack and glasses of wine while waiting. By now we were both wiped. We decided to cut the day short and catch the bus back to Aalsmeer, have a cup of tea, and relax for the evening.
