Maybe I'll just leave the hotel and Uber... Wanted to grab a nap though :-(

What's the closest food eatery to AMS airport?
All are about 15 minutes.

Apologize in advance, as I am sure this was asked and answered somewhere. Planning a trip for just me and my wife in end of August. What is the recommended number of days?

I would say 3. I did a week (minus a day trip) with a toddler and we had 1 day too much. If it were just my wife and I, we could have done everything we wanted in 3.

If I have more time is there a nearby country you recommend I visit too?
