Amsterdam is a fab central location, which enables easy access to all of Europe (and beyond), but it is also important to explore our immediate surroundings. We are on day 2 of a 5 day road trip. We drove 1.5 hours north then hopped on a ferry to Texel, one of the Wadden Islands. Watching seagulls from the ferry was incredible. Upon arrival we rented 1 amazing bicycle for the whole family to enjoy, and we hit the beach!
