The Sail 2005 nautical event in Amsterdam.

Thursday, August 18th, 2005.
After a nice walk on the beach at Zandvoort (see the Zandvoort page) I went to Amsterdam to visit the free nautical event Sail 2005. I didn't really know what to expect and I hoped I'd be able to spent my time well there. But I was really surprised by how cool this event actually was, even for a person (like me) who's not that interested in the nautical world. It was an amazing experience to enter the tall sailing ships and to take a look inside. In the Photo album you can see almost 100 photos I took during this part of the day. I added some nice descriptions to each photo so you can almost relive this day in Amsterdam. In the end, when I had seen nearly all ships, I went to the city center of Amsterdam. I bought some food and later on I watched the fireworks in the harbour. If you ever get the chance to visit Amsterdam during this 5-day event, do it! When the fireworks were over, I rushed to the train station to go back home again. I eventual arrived home around 1 o'clock in the morning.
