Class Trip to Amsterdam
The school I'm attending here is the International Hotel Management school. For one of my classes I'm taking imagineering (Disney uses it). For that class I'am in a group and our goal is to recreate something out of the box in a real hotel that would be beneficial to the hotel. So we had to go visit our hotel in Amsterdam. Our hotel is called Hotel V- very funky! After the interview with the hotel manager, i went with my group to explore.
We decided to go see Anne Frank's House. Words cannot explain how i felt being in Anne's actual hide out house, knowing all that she went through there, especially when i went behind the bookshelf under a little door entrance. It made me realize how far our world has come in such a short amount of time. On the walls there were quotes from her diary that matched the place in the house. We got to see her actual diary that was in dutch. It was astonishing how many people were touring her house.
After walking around Amersterdam all day we were quite tired, so we headed for the train. On our way to the train we stopped by a bakery. I cannot explain how great Amersterdams pasteries are. Everything is homemade and made with really quality products. Of course i had to by one for the train trip! :) It was the best dessert i have ever had - a cream puff that can chocolate bars on the bottom. Overall a great day at school in the Netherlands!
