Amsterdam: The Best Metro Cars Ever!?

A a Florida girl, I was constantly stuck in traffic. Here in Amsterdam, I love to zip around from A to B and everywhere in-between. Before moving here, I didn't actually know that Amsterdam had a metro system but turns out, it's an easy way to get to Central Station while avoiding the snow.

Crawling underground with loads of strangers, slipping down the stairs in the snow slush and missing a train be three seconds only to catch the next train and have an electrical failure can really put a damper on your day. But the people at GVB (Amsterdam's transport system) have thought of a new way to brighten everyones mood by decorating the metro cars. While the designs are a bit odd (cupcakes, baby animals) it's definitely fun to spot different art in each metro car.
