Where I stayed
We walked by a cathedral that looked to have been burnt before because all of the bricks were black. It looked pretty cool in the snow. We walked down the main shopping street in Oberhausen and saw a David Hasselhoff poster. They really like him in Germany and think he is an amazing actor. It's pretty funny actually. We ended up going to a bratwurst stand. We grabbed some German bratwursts and devoured them. After that we ordered some hot dogs and then we ordered some curry wurst. It was all really good. After the two hour layover in Oberhausen we went back to the train station and caught a train to Amsterdam.
The train didn't take too long, but we had to switch trains again in a city called Emmerich, Germany. The train was late to start because the conductor said there was a crazy man and the police needed to detain him. Everyone thought that was pretty funny. Anyway we arrived to Amsterdam in the dark and I didn't see much of the city
We ended up walking around the town a little bit and grabbing something to eat at a local restaurant. It was a long day of traveling and we wanted to get to bed early so we could go to Den Haag the next day. There wasn't much happening in Voorburg anyway, everything seemed to close at 8 p.m.
Onto the countdown....In at #5.......
5. New York City, NY- This place is massive. Manhattan alone has at least 20 things that all tourists should do. Everyone should go to The New York City Public Library, Times Square, Museum of Modern Art, Guggenheim, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Bryant Park, Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, and Brooklyn Bridge. Everyone should walk through Central Park and experience the
atmosphere. It's always cool to go into a giant park in the middle of
one of the biggest cities in the world. A trip to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty will put you in the shoes of your ancestors. A trip to Brooklyn Bridge will give you a look at some of the massive buildings in New York City and the rest of the island.
You can't forget places like The Bronx, Harlem and Queens. I haven't been to any of these places, but next time I go I really plan on visiting some places outside of Manhattan. All of these places have a unique feel to them and have their own special restaurants and places to enjoy the city at. The city has a very good subway system that can help get you around from place to place relatively cheap. It's always great to go to Times Square and be able to see an insane amount of people. The street food all around the city is excellent too. You can get almost anything you want. It's great. You can easily get lost in the city for days at a time. It's a great place to go and is a place unlike any other in the world. Highly recommended.
