A trip to Amsterdam

My boyfriend and I went on Amsterdam for our holiday this year. Was such a good couple of days! The hotel was nice enough to upgrade our reservation to an apartment rather than just a room so we ended up having two floors to ourselves.

We did plan to go to the park for a picnic but the weather didn't hold and it was raining for most of the two days! We still had a great time and I brought back some of their weirdly named 'old cheese' - apparently this is just an aged gouda. It's absolutely delicious!

Here's what we got up to:

  1. Lovely pictures :) I've always wanted to go to Amsterdam to visit the Secret Annexe x

  2. We wanted to go too but the queue was way too big. By the time we had waited we would have missed out on soo much more :( Next time though!
