New Year's in Amsterdam

New Year's in Amsterdam

What I Loved: Exploring a new city for the first time with the excited buzz of people out celebrating in the streets. We went to a main square to see music and fireworks. We also sat in a bar for a while, drinking hot chocolate.

What I Didn't Like: The crowds were really packed heading home -- the nearest I've come to feeling like I could be trampled in a crowd. Plus, people were setting off their own fireworks into the crowd, which seemed dangerous.
