Have spent my life working with people, either in retail (owned my own shop for years), public relations and/or fundraising. Raised 3 children and my oldest son is giving me this wonderful trip to Holland at Tulip Time. Will be cruising on the Alma Dolce due back in on Sunday the 29th. Since I will be unexpectedly in Amsterdam alone I want to be in an area that is safe and comfortable with access to public transportation. Maybe a nice restaurant nearby for dinner. Don't drink or smoke so I am a quiet guest!! I live in a beautiful area of the US: the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Miles and miles of waterfront on the Chesapeake Bay, so was brought up on the water and am an avid sailor. Love music and museums and hope to take advantage of the museums in your beautiful city.
