Thursday of the EJC, the 4th of August, myself and my companion travelled in to Amsterdam briefly.
We woke up about 10am and took the train, having to change once because of maintenance, from Almere Poort to Amsterdam Centraal. There was quite a few other jugglers travelling in at the same time so a large group of us arrived searching for breakfast.
It was my partner’s first time there so we just did usual touristy stuff – though we didn’t have time to travel along the canal sadly.
We wandered in between shops and took photos of buildings – and also found a great comic book shop and beautiful looking restaurant!
We were due back for a juggler meeting and not wanting to be late we made our way back to the train station after just a few hours.
Coincidentally, the same week that the EJC was on in Almere, EuroPride was taking place in Amsterdam. We didn’t get to see much of it other than a decorated piano that had been placed in the central station.
