Somehow Amsterdam had managed to escape my attention for some time. However last Summer when I was looking for a cheap and quick trip from London it found its way onto my radar.
When I sat down next to ten ladies adorned in genitalia(of the male variety) on my outbound flight I quickly started to regret my decision!
However after a good nights sleep I was ready to explore. It’s certainly an easy place to get around – just look out for the bikes! They rule the roads…and the pavements and stop for no one!
The Rijksmuseum(above) and the Van Gogh Musem are beautiful, but be prepared to queue!
Hay Design Shop
No drugs kids, just bikes
Wish I had seen this bad boy in use – would certainly make the commute a lot more fun although just as crowded!
So all in all a nice weekend, but not really the relaxing trip away from London that I needed! Queues for everything and a lot of stag/hen parties! Saying that now that I’ve done the cultural bit I’d love to go back for a proper party weekend!
