LIFE | MY TRIP TO AMSTERDAM



















 Hello lovelies!

Earlier this month I was lucky enough to go to Amsterdam for a long weekend to celebrate my mums 50th birthday (yeah I know Amsterdam with the parents?! surprisingly hilarious). 

Having never been before I didn't quite know what to expect, however I was not disappointed the city is incredible. I was also lucky enough to stay in the ohmygod Kimpton De Witt hotel - honestly, google it its amazing, the free wine between 5pm and 6pm make it all the better too. 

Personally for me I didn't go to Amsterdam for the sole purpose that many people in their twenties do - weed - having no interest in the stuff whatsoever. So, instead I actually enjoyed the sites and culture.

I won't bore you with the ins and the outs but a couple highlights of the trip was firstly, how insightful the Anne Frank Museum was and which has since inspired me to buy the book feeling ashamed I for some reason never read it as a child. 

The next highlight could be pretty strange seeing as I went with my parents but the Red Light District was a definite highlight. If you know my parents they're pretty damn funny so walking round and sitting in bars in such a place with them was hilarious. The best recommendation for you all is the Old Sailor pub in the district - lets just say - the BEST people watching in the world goes on through them pub windows, need I say more?

On the other hand, unless you love canals (unlike me) I wouldn't recommend the canal cruises so strongly. Let's just say I paid 11 euros to have a solid half hour nap on an hour cruise, to which my sister kindly took photo evidence of.

Have any of you guys been to Amsterdam? What did you think?

Till next time,
Sophie xx
