Amsterdam, Netherlands

Amsterdam was a last minute decision, we had hummed and hawwed about where to go that summer and it seemed like the easiest place get too.

Just like all of our other holidays we wanted to have a few things booked before we left.

We heard about an amusement park about an hour away called Efteling. So we stayed in a gorgeous hotel in the middle of the woods called The NH Sparrenhorst. Where he headed to the nearby village where Efteling was supposed to be close too, but unfortunately, it was closed for the day. We ended up staying in the town for lunch and a few drinks.

When we got back to the centre of Amsterdam we stayed at the West Side Inn which was so nice and handy and just around the corner from the city centre.

We hadn’t really planned to do anything else, so we were just playing it by ear.

We booked tickets to do:

  • The Amsterdam Dunegon
  • The Heineken Ice Bar
  • The Zoo

I can 100% recommend the Ice Bar and the Zoo, they were both incredible.
