This was our 5th visit to Amsterdam, we went for a week which is a really good amount of time to do a few touritsy things & also just take time to relax. We have done all the big tourist attractions like Anne Frank’s House, Dam Square, Amsterdam Museum and been on many canal boat tours so this time we decided just to walk up and down off the beaten track a little and discover the quiet side to Amsterdam.
Its such a beautiful city and I never get tired of visiting, there is so many street side cafes and bars, I pretty much ate and drank my way round. This time we had a picnic in Vondelpark and that was a beautiful way to spend the afternoon, lounging on the grass watching the people go by. The weather was incredible all week with just one afternoon of rain, it was the perfect weather to get lost up and down the streets of canal houses.

Oh & I still haven’t hired a bike in Amsterdam, I am too scared! I really want to and it looks a lot of fun but I am terrible at riding a bike, I will have to practise before I go back again.
I also uploaded quite a few photos to Instagram if you’d like to see more of Amsterdam
