Ah, being Dutch I don’t need an excuse to go back to my home country and Chris my husband know that at least once a year I have, I just need to, go to Amsterdam for a couple of days.

Not the seedy sex shops, red light district, but the Jordaan, the amazing ‘nine streets’ of Amsterdam (I will go back to show you later in the year) with all its unique shops and wonderful cafe’s. Go to the restaurants where the locals are and you know you will be looked after.

I lived in Amsterdam for almost ten years before I moved to England and I had a wonderful time, a wonder sociable time, always something new to explore, whether it was a new cafe or a new bookstore. Just wander around Amsterdam around the canals towards the Jordaan and you will be in a totally different world with the true Amsterdammers. Love them!
