Travel: Amsterdam Photo Diary

Tuesday, October 13, 2015

About two weeks ago, shortly before I returned to University for my third year, me and my boyfriend decided to take a weekend break away. We booked it as a 21st birthday gift but wanted to go in September as a last trip before I went back to Uni. It feels like ages ago now since we went but we had the best time. 

I have always wanted to go to Amsterdam and it's a place I've heard so much about. I even got to ride around on a bike for the day (like what most of the people in Amsterdam do) and It's so tiring but I suppose that's how you stay fit over there. I thought I'd share with you all a photo diary of some of the things we got up to while we were there. There will be a part 2 to this photo diary including an outfit post!

When we arrived it wasn't the sunniest of days in Amsterdam but at least it wasn't raining. I couldn't help but get Ben to take a photo of me next to the Amsterdam sign.
After we checked in at our hotel we went on a wander to find the local train station near to our hotel and we found a massive bike park next to the station it was so weird seeing so many bikes.
When we got into the centre of Amsterdam we ended up in the Sex Museum which was only about €4 which was pretty cheap to get into. It was actually really interesting going around the museum and it was certainly a different experience. We did see only a few disturbing photos but I suppose it's interesting seeing what people got up to in the 1940's/1950's and before then.

A lot of our time in Amsterdam was spent exploring. Me and Ben loved the fact you could get around the city so easily and the bikes helped us get around super quick! I loved just people watching, seeing all the landmarks and soaking up the culture. I also just HAD to get a photo of this girls outfit she looked amazing and I totally want to give the brogues and socks with cropped jeans style a go!

One thing I loved about Amsterdam was the houses. I loved the colours of them and how they were so long and narrow. Me and Ben went on a boat tour while we were there at night and it was amazing I'd 100% recommend. They told us that when people move into a new house they get all their belongings up to the house by using rope and hooks. Imagine your sofa coming through the window?! crazy. I loved all the super cute magazine and bookshops Amsterdam had as well I could have spent hours in there!

Have you ever been to Amsterdam?
