Back in the fall of 2009, my family and I took a Holland America Baltic Cruise that sailed out of Rotterdam, Netherlands. Naturally, we flew from Toronto to Amsterdam. We left the day after that terrible tornado hit the city of Vaughn in Southern Ontario.
The original trip itinerary required us to shuttle straight from the Amsterdam airport to the ship. But we wanted our boys to see a bit of Amsterdam first, so we arranged for a deviation and stayed overnight outside the city. This allowed us to do a bit of sightseeing the day we arrived. I have posted several photos of this part of our trip.
