Wow, had no idea it had gotten that crazy. Lovely city, great memories of a core conf detour there.

Yeah we went at a great time --well, except it was in March and damn cold. It's one of my favorite cities and we switched to Schiphol as our EU travel hub.  I used to keep Amsterdam tram tickets with my passport.
