Europe; Amsterdam: how to see it in 1 day.

So you’ve got one day to see the city, where do you start. Although Amsterdam is heavily associated with drugs and prostitution, there really is so much more to see and do. From the Van Gough Museum to the Heineken Brewery there really is something for everyone.

So, Amsterdam in 12hours.

9am- if your fortunate enough to be up and about for 9am then you’ll probably find not much else is, take yourself down to the Dam Square and grab a coffee and croissant, watch the city come to life.

10.30- consider visiting a museum of choice, try the Van Gough, Anne Franks House or Madam Tussauds,
now is a great time before the queues get too long.

12.00- take a wander down the red light district of the city, not quite as seedy as you’d be lead to believe. Do not take photographs of these girls, they don’t respond well.

1.00- fancy some lunch, just down from the Dam Square are many ally’s lined with great eateries! I’d recommend Pasta Pasta!

2.30- once you’ve explored the many souvenir shops, take a walk back across the Dam Square and over to the ‘I Amsterdam’ sign! Great for a photo opportunity.

3.00- Amsterdam’s most famous for a city of bikes, why not hire a city bike and go explore the city, find a nice spot by the river bed to sit and watch the world go by.

5.00- the city really does come to life at night! Head off for some tea before hitting the bars for a couple of bevs!

Hope this helps! Here’s some personal snaps from my time in the city.

Welcome back! Here I am writing my review of my road trip across the USA this summer. If your returning after reading my previous post ‘First Stop, Las Vegas’ you will know I kept a diary of my travels around the country! Here I summarise my trip by reposting my diary entry’s for every day documented as I went along.

Room Key – Red Roof Inn

13th August 2013.

Prior to vacating Sin City, we had to make one last stop.. Victoria Secrets. Wow, Vegas is a city like no other, so an appropriate souvenir was unquestionable. We both picked up the cutest Victoria Secrets pyjama top inscribed with ‘ Vegas Secret Angel’ (this went on to be my favourite souvenir of the trip).

Music; Lauren’s a Youtube Sensation!

>Words can’t actually describe how much I love this video. Lauren, one overly excited screaming fan, has the most amusing accent. “I brought Monopoly and Cludooor” and “I like cheese” are amongst my favourite moments 😀 ..

Love You Lolders. #GLOVELOVE
