Aundrea Kinney photos/Review Because Amsterdam is a flat city, the most popular mode of transportation is biking. Pedal bikes, motorized bikes and motorized scooters all travel in the bike lane, and pedestrians need to be careful not to get clipped when stepping off the sidewalk.

I first learned of the Netherlands during a first-grade career day presentation. The grandmother of one of my classmates was a flight attendant, and as we sat at our desks, she talked us through what it is like to fly in an airplane.
