Witamy w Amsterdamie-miejscu, o ktorym snia zeglarze na calym swiecie!Ok, now in English After one day of our journey we arrived at Amsterdam- the city of Van Gogh, beautiful narrow streets, coffee shops and...Red Light District! Undoubtedly the male part of our crew was the most interested in this part of the city.
Unfortunately we had to stay in a dock, not in the centre harbour, so we needed a taxi to get to and from Central Station. But when we had already been in the heart of Amsterdam, everyone could find something interesting to do: me, my brothers Tomezk and Piotrek, Rachel, Josh and Mike chose going to the Van Gogh Museum. It costs 12,5 euro, so it is quite expensive, but seeing all those famous paintings was worth the price of admission. However, not everyone appreciated the accomplishments of Vincent Van Gogh- cadets and other boys preferred rather making a tour around local pubs and bars...of course- we joined them later J
During evenings we could have a chat in pubs, of course drinking good beer.
Whilst we were ashore in the afternoon next to our dock, arrived the biggest Polish tall ship- Dar Mlodziezy. I have to admit that I was impressed by her size, as well as the rest of the crew. Sometimes it’s pretty good to be Polish and have the opportunity to be proud of our country. Even hearing polish ~kurwa mac~ so far from home made me happy J
The next morning all our disabled crew were going aloft with the assistance of duty officers. We were quite impressed with this because it is sometimes a bit terrifying for us, so Abi, Alice, Tom and Louis had to be brave twice!
Now we are planning to sail to Brugge, but this time maybe without sea sickness... so, see you in Belgium-do zobaczenia w Belgii!
