A is for …….

So gentle viewer following on from the Amsterdam apartment of dreams what else did I see and do in Amsterdam I hear you ask ( I know you’re not but let’s just play along shall we) 

So I love to tourist, I mean I really love it. So before heading of to the land of tulips I got my google on and researched things I might like. 

1 Anne Franks House . Cliche I know but how could I not. You can book tickets, these these are available on the website and are released 2 month in advance. Or you can do what I did and turn up and queue, still worth turning up from 2 as the queue does get pretty long. Entry is €9 for adults

Vondel Park is a large free park, cafe/ restaurant, band stand and always seems to be something on , jazz music, dog show etc 

Lost items centre based on honesty, respect and trust 

3 Markets, markets, markets. We visited the flower market and the flea market. If you couldn’t find it there you were finding it anywhere 

4 Food. I mean come on Amsterdam has a wealth of food choices from chips and sauces (a must) to gelato, waffles and crepes and that’s just the vendors 


5 Coffee shops. I guess this is a personal choice. They are available all over the city and are perfectly legal 


Off on my next trip to Mexico

Amsterdam Apartment

So as many of you know i have a little love for the old travel bug.

Well this last month i went on a little trip to the beautiful city of Amsterdam with a few of my gal pals.

We found a lovely City Centre Apartment close enough to the town centre to walk in and far enough away to have a peaceful night sleep.

the 3 rooms comfortably slept the 6 of us, we had our own lounge and kitchen and the all important WIFI

but the stairs, oh the stairs, i wouldn’t be exaggerating (ok maybe a little) to say they were vertical, like climb a mountain vertical

ok i know they don’t look it but i felt like i conquered Everest everyday getting up and down them!

i’ll cover some of the more touristy things i did in the coming posts, but for now i leave you with this beautiful croissant ( little treat for climbing those damn stairs!)
