Engel and I arrived at the Hock of Holland at 6:45pm after a long yet relaxing ferry ride. The weather was still beautiful as we crossed the border in Holland; we prepared ourselves by playing 1200 micrograms (Psytrance) for the drive. Of course, it was all on the right hand side!
The scenery was gorgeous as we made haste towards Amsterdam. Fortunately, the roads are well marked for foreigners, and we had no problems navigating the motorways. We arrived at Amsterdam City Camp around 7:45pm, which is a well maintained campsite for those in Vans and Motorhomes.
It is rare to be so accepted with our lifestyle. After setting up, we headed to NDSM where the thrice hourly ferry embarks. It is only a short walk from Amsterdam City Camp and remains active until 11:45pm.
NDSM is the cultural remainder of Amsterdam’s ship building legacy. It is now a hub for experimental art, festivals, and culture. Locals describe it as a cultural breeding ground with a post apocalyptic vibe, which is accurate from our experience. For more information, visit http://www.ndsm.nl/en/
