2nd Year Tour to Amsterdam, February, 2019
Our tour to Amsterdam was great fun with plenty of highlights. On the morning of our departure we congregated at Cork Airport at the ungodly time of 3.30am to prepare for our 6am flight to Amsterdam. On arrival we travelled to Zaanse Schans where we witnessed clogs and cheese being made and some of us opted for the chance to go up into a windmill.
After lunch we had a lesson on the Nazi occupation of Holland and the peril of Nazi prejudice against the Jews. This really made the tour of the Anne Frank House really meaningful and we felt humbled to be walking the footsteps of a teenage girl who endured 2 years of her life in hiding before she and her family were arrested, deported died in concentration camps with the exception of her father Otto. Otto made sure that her memory survives today through the publication of her famous diary.
We were all a little subdued leaving the Anne Frank House but our spirits were lifted soon after with a visit to the Amsterdam Dungeon which was an interactive journey into 500 years of Amsterdam’s horrible history. After an action packed day we arrived at our hotel which was really comfortable and clean and we were pleasantly surprised by the high standard of food. The following day we did a canal boat tour of the city, visited the flower market and soaked up the atmosphere of a busy city en route to the Van Gogh Museum.
