Next up on our European adventure… two nights in Amsterdam!
We stayed in the fun and colourful Art Hotel Amsterdam, just a ten minute bus ride from the city centre. Amsterdam was so easy to explore, with this hotel acting as a great base but far enough away from the centre to not be full of drunken stag and hens!
We enjoyed a couple of days exploring the city, from wandering along its many famed canals to an eye opening meander through the red light district (even during the day time there were certainly still some sights!). We visited the Dutch Resistance Museum which provided a real insight into the role of the Netherlands in WW2. We also enjoyed shopping at their fabulous department store De Bijenkorf – the roof top cafe has some amazing views and some even better cakes! We rounded off the trip with a delicious meal at Gaucho – steak to die for, a must do for any carnivore.
