Amsterdam has been one of my favourite cities since I first visited back in July 2015. I adored the architecture, the culture, the canals and the people. It is buzzy, vibrant, always moving and quite chaotic at times. It makes me feel alive as it always on the go and there is something else to see around the next corner.
My two best gal pals and I decided to visit months ago when we saw a one-way flight from Glasgow for around £15. I have been desperate to visit again since I left three years ago so visiting with two of my favourite people had me looking forward to a trip back for months.
Put simply, my week in the Dutch capital was a week of bagels, cola light, museum going and whole bundle of laughs. It was my first trip to this beautiful city and will most certainly not be my last. I’ve never enjoyed being somewhere so much as the food was lovely, the people were so friendly and that Amsterdam vibe is something that can’t be replicated.
I have serious holiday blues writing this up and can’t stop flicking through my photographs. We weren’t the luckiest with the weather as it was quite chilly for the end of July but that didn’t stop us getting out and exploring – even if we did have a wardrobe problem. My friends and I spent four nights in this city and here is everything we got up to if you are planning a trip in a similar time frame.
