So I thought I would keep writing about my current trip around Northern Europe. My next couple of days in Amsterdam were really interesting and packed with activities. Hopefully I won’t bore you with my travel tales. I may even make you feel like checking out a holiday to the Netherlands. Here goes with my memories of another day in Amsterdam.
I love a good museum
Popping to the Rijksmuseum was a real highlight of my trip. When I booked some tickets I had no idea what it was going to be like. Suffice to say, it did not disappoint. As someone who likes history and art, I always want to explore what museums have to offer but so many are fairly lame or samey. This one wasn’t.
It had pieces of work from Van Gogh and Rembrandt which were found alongside a variety of historical artefacts such as armour, maritime objects and royal furniture.
After a hard morning of museum wandering I needed a Chinese meal and some drinks in a rooftop bar. Thank goodness for the W Lounge which sits in one of the central squares, next to the Royal Palace. I absolutely loved chilling out there with a glass of champagne and some complimentary nuts.
I did so many other things in Amsterdam but picked a few highlights to reflect upon. Amsterdam is a brilliant, bustling city full of history, culture and food. The only thing that slightly tarnished the stay for me was the constant smell of weed in the streets. It is inescapable and can make your clothes smell. Apart from this though, I have nothing but positive words about this lovely city.
