I’ve just arrived back from what I think was the best and loveliest city break that Dom and I have ever been on together. From start to finish Amsterdam was an absolute pleasure.
It started with the easy drive to Bristol airport. Why all airports aren’t that convenient to get to, I don’t know. Then a quick hop, skip and 50 minute flight and you’re in Amsterdam Schipol. How bloody easy!
Although a little grey when we arrived, the sun soon showed it’s face while we wandered around the quiet canal lanes and over bridges. I will never tire of looking at the picturesque Dutch buildings – each one is different and the huge windows made them look like what could be my dream home.
I’ll tell you more about what we visited in Amsterdam in another post, but for now I couldn’t wait to give you a taste of all things Dutch, including the beautiful Rijksmuseum, the tasty cocktails we drank and wonderful streets we walked.
Amsterdam is an incredibly walkable city and we were averaging around 20,000 steps per day. A bit better than the measly amount on a normal working day for me.
I’ll be back with more photos soon and a complete Amsterdam city guide, but for now I’ll leave you with some of the photos I shared on Instagram – follow me here!
