Postcards from Amsterdam


I wanted to share some pictures of our time in Amsterdam whilst I am going through them. There will probably be lots more to come but just trying to make some kind of structure of them, I didn't realise how much work sorting out three holidays in one would be on our return!

Whilst we were in Amsterdam we stayed at the newly opened INK Hotel. Newly opened as in when we checked it in hadn't even been a week. You would never had noticed though going by just how smoothly and professional the place was run. This was probably our favourite hotel of the trip and we loved their attention to detail. All the staff wore custom design G Star uniforms matched with Clarks shoes.


I have to say that although I always though Paris was my favourite city we really fell in love Amsterdam and it totally won our hearts this trip. When we were there last year it was only for two days and we left wishing we had been able to have a little longer to really experience the city. This time we did all the things we didn't quite have time for previously like hiring bicycles and riding around Vondelpark and taking a boat to the North and chilling out on the beach there.


Tom actually has written up a post on some of the places we ate whilst we were here, again out of the three cities we spent time in Amsterdam won hands down in terms of delicious food! The picture above is of Latei a cute cafe with a resident cat!


Wilf was so brilliantly behaved the entire time and we were so lucky with the weather. We spent our last three days a little tired from the past week of travel and so took it really easy which was perfect. Tom is the planner in our relationship and often tries to organise three things a day when we are on a trip which is great when we are wanting to fit in a lot over a small amount of time but can be a bit tiring! With Amsterdam we broke it down to only one (sometimes two) things and it felt like a real break.

I made a little video of our time in the three cities if you fancy a watch! You can read about London here and Paris here.

You can definitely tell by these pictures that you had an amazing time! And trust me, you still haven't seen it all... I've lived here all my life and still discover new things quite regularly. So plenty of reasons to come back again someday;)

It looks like you had an amazing trip. I absolutely love Amsterdam, and what a great time of year to go with all the tulips in full bloom. I love wandering around the residential areas admiring their fantastic architecture.
