Have you mapped out the entire route of your city trip in advance? Sometimes you have so much on your list that you forget to enjoy your surroundings and reflect on the beauty of the city. Try to wander aimlessly for a while and discover the parks and squares where local people look for relaxation. And then see just what you would miss if you stay on your marked route. Let the City necklace, on which you see the map of Amsterdam, remind you that sometimes it is worth your while to go off the beaten track.
