Traveling to another country for the first time can be terrifying to think about, even more so when going by yourself. I found myself in this exact situation in July of 2016 when I decided to travel to Amsterdam, Netherlands. I was so excited to see another part of the world and yet so absolutely terrified. Not that I showed it of course. I had no itinerary, no set plans but I had my plane ticket and lodging paid for. I spent the next six days visiting all of Amsterdam’s attractions. These are my stories.
