Above (use the arrows) are some of the pics I snapped on my News Years trip to Amsterdam. One of my very best friends lives in the city, so it wasn’t my first trip nor will it be my last, and I promise next time to get a proper guide together for you.
This trip was about being with my friend, so we spent a lot of time shopping, drinking hot drinks, and wandering round small back streets – as well as having lazy mornings in her apartment, and staying in drinking gin and catching up. For New Years Eve we went out for a beautiful meal, and lots of incredible wine that was selected for us at a wine bar. We saw in midnight on a canal-side watching fireworks going off over the city. It really was the perfect way to see in 2016.
(Although spending the 1st January hungover on an Eazyjet flight home was less glamourous).
I love Amsterdam and one day would like to live in a Canal House by the Nine Streets, shop in all the excellent concept stores, drink coffee and stay up late, and be able to take my dog into & Other Stories. (Yes that’s a thing there). That’s my little Amsterdam dream right there.
The weather was beautiful, we were so lucky to have a crisp, cold but very sunny few days, with no rain, and warm enough just to wear a leather jacket in December.
Have you ever been to Amsterdam? I’d love to know your thoughts and recommendations for my next trip!
