Episode Summary

Amsterdam, The Netherlands/Holland
Did you know that the city of Amsterdam has more bridges and canals than Venice? And that nearly 80% of the population of the Netherlands owns a bicycle? These are just a few things that Samantha Brown discovers in this episode of Passport to Europe when she visits the city of Amsterdam, Holland. Samantha arrives just in time to see fields and fields of tulips at the Keukenhof Gardens. Flowers aren't the only thing of beauty in Amsterdam - the city has over 55 museums, and one of its most visited is dedicated to the famous one eared Dutchman - Vincent Van Gogh. Sam discovers that although he completed nearly 1100 drawings and 900 paintings, Van Gogh only sold two during his lifetime! Bicycles are everywhere in Amsterdam - so Samantha hops on and cycles around town exploring its canals and colorful neighborhoods. She also tries something that, let's just say, you have to sample while you are in Amsterdam - it's available, you can get it on the streets, and the locals love it - it's herring! You won't believe how the locals eat it! Now there's one other thing that Amsterdam is known for - it's coffee houses. Samantha steps inside to see that coffee isn't the only thing on their menu! The canals of Amsterdam are world famous - and what better place to call home during your visit than a houseboat - Samantha checks in for a different kind of hotel experience.moreless
