Adventures in Amsterdam: Part II

I posted about our first couple of days in Amsterdam a few days ago, but since we were in this city for a solid five days I wanted to go ahead and share more about the last half of our stay. Like I stated time and time again, we just had so much fun in this city. Amsterdam is such a unique kind of place and is nothing short of a great adventure. It has so much charm — which you know I’m a sucker for — and has so many little hidden treasures along its darling streets and canals. You’ve just got to remember to keep an eye out for them!

Bike Riding in the Netherlands

When thinking of Amsterdam usually what pops into most people’s minds are sweet thoughts of all the bicyclers. You know, since this is the most bike-friendly city in the world.

Adventures in Amsterdam: Part I

While it was really quite hard to say goodbye to Berlin, Derek and I were so, so excited to meet Amsterdam. Like so many of these cities we’ve had a chance to visit on this trip, this was our first time here so we were both extremely eager to get out and start exploring.

I really don’t even know where to begin. Amsterdam is just such a mesmerizing place, and has charm written ALL over it. From the canals to all the bikes and houseboats, it didn’t take long for us to fall in love. The best part about this city is that for the most part it is very walkable — although we might not be the best ones to decide since we’re gotten used to walking about 10 miles per day!

I wanted to kick this weekend off on an extra fun note by sharing another mini film! This one is all about our adventures in Amsterdam.

I seriously cannot wait to share with you guys more about our time here. I’m a little behind on posting because time is just passing way too fast, but posts will be coming soon, I promise.
