Come, let’s rent a bike!
I am taking you on several rides today. First, let’s take the bike in Amsterdam.
We all know Amsterdam is a very bike-friendly city. In fact, it is dubbed “The City of Bikes.” And why not? It has multitude of bike paths and it has special bicycle traffic lights, too!
How about a carabao lane, anyone? Heehee
I was so amazed. I hope the Philippines will have these, too. Instead of people riding on carabaos, they might as well ride bikes to their farm 😉 Someday. Someday.
Anyway, your biking experience in Amsterdam begins with a rented bike. Here I am at one of the rental stations of MacBike.
How would you like to ride a bike with me around Amsterdam? 😉
Next, let’s take the GVB bus. It’s a cool way to tour the city. The GVB is the public transport system in Amsterdam. It has 16 trams routes, around 50 bus routes, 4 metro lines, and 5 ferry links. Now, when will my dear Philippines have these?! I hope it happens in my lifetime.
Let’s hop on a trains this time, shall we? Around Amsterdam, I took the GVB train.
Look, it’s not crowded!
Here I am at the Waterlooplein Metro Station. It is close to the city hall of Amsterdam.
Ready for a train ride!
Oh, I also rode a train in Rotterdam, the 2nd largest city in The Netherlands. The train system in Europe is really very efficient. Kainggit much!
It’s so clean 🙂
I’m saving the best ride for last so here I am, in a Thalys Train 1st class! Thalys, the “red train,” is a high speed train that takes you to Belgium, France, The Netherlands, and Germany. So since I’m riding it, you can guess where I am heading next 😉
Come, ride with me! 🙂
