Bus did not go to Volendam because streets were closed due to circus. Disappointed as Volendam was what I wanted to see. Edam was a nice and quiet small town. Windmills were great.

This was one of the best things I did while in Amsterdam’s. Enjoyed the stops with lovely scenery and delicious cheese.
