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:

Well, what can I say – another great opportunity to make a total fool of myself…

 

Strolling around the village of Marken:

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

 

Time to board the ferry for the trip to Volendam:
