Our time in Amsterdam seemed to revolve around two things: coffee and rain. It rained on and off all day, every day. It would rain even if it the sky was blue and the sun was out and one pretty morning, it actually hailed.
While it was a little cold and uncomfortable at times, I learned to love Amsterdam's rain. It made our boat trip through the canals feel cozy, and it encouraged us to duck into cafes for a cup of dark, frothy coffee every chance we got. We drank so much coffee in Amsterdam, it's a wonder we ever slept.
