It’s Thursday night and it has been a long week back at work after my leisurely weekend in Amsterdam.
My boyfriend and I decided to have a weekend away earlier this year. We first initially planned a ‘glamping’ trip – you know, the ones with ‘wooden tents’ and that. We were slightly taken back when we realised how expensive it would be and how for the same price; we could go to another country! Amsterdam was at the top of our list for many reasons. The beautiful canals, the friendly people, chilled out vibe and the food – to name a few!
After an eventful trip through Security at Manchester Airport in the early hours of a cold, autumnal morning (yep, we’re talking mini panic attack and what not) we made it to the beautiful city which was just waking up as we touched down. It was amazing seeing the sunrise over the landscape from above. I’m pretty sure it would bore you to read through every tiny detail of the holiday, so I’ve decided to compile a few of the photos I took. I hope you enjoy looking through them!

A much needed lie in, followed by a cycle to the Albert Cuypmarkt. An interesting visit to the city archives, a cycle through Rijkmuseum and Rembrandtplein. We ate our tea at Sea Palace which is a FLOATING Chinese restaurant! SO MUCH FOOD.

We spent our final hours in Amsterdam exploring NDSM which is a former Shipyard. The land is now home to lots of street art and container houses.
