Although I was determined to have a boring, relaxed honeymoon Mike had previously expressed interest in boating in Amsterdam so I went ahead and surprised him with a boat rental.
We packed a picnic (with lots of wine and chocolate) and had the most perfect afternoon floating around Amsterdam. It was warm, but not too warm, I had a giddy captain, I was wearing my favourite dress, I fit snugly in the prow of the boat, and I had just married my favourite guy.
Warm fuzzies all around.
RENTING A BOAT IN AMSTERDAM
Since we splurged on our hotel, I cheaped out on our boat and rented from Boaty.nl.
Cons: The boats are located a little bit out of town, so to collect and return your boat you have to be organized (we got lost, twice, but the rental company was nice enough to extend our rental free of charge).
Pros: It was €99 for 4 hours, the boat was huge, electric (aka quiet), and much more comfortable than it looks!
