Amsterdam in a cold Spring

My accumulated Voyager airmiles meant we could take a break to Amsterdam, Berlin and Munich, staying with Couchsurfing friends for some of the nights away. Our truip had been postponed from September due to my mom's 80th Birthday bash, so we unfortunately had to do Europe in winter, the temperatures plumetting to a low of -13c. Amsterdam was incredible, but cold, although we managed to have a beer in most places and sometimes even outside catching a few rays of sunshine. It was supposed to be Spring, and the cold did not deter us from a jaunt around the city by bicycle, probably the best way to get around there. It was shortly before Easter and the store displays were amazing everywhere.
