Day Trip To Marken and Volendam

Well, it’s our last full day in the Netherlands before going home so we’re going to make the most of it. We’re traveling out of Amsterdam by bus to explore the quaint little fishing village of Marken, then taking a ferry across the water to the little town of Volendam, before returning to Centraal Station in Amsterdam.

Our route looks something like this:


So, here we go….

Nice shoes… a tad big though…
Our lunch spot in Marken – Hhmmmmm… I sense a decorative theme in this place
