Hi there! I’m back with more photos from our mini-trip to Amsterdam! Absolutely wonderful city, think of all the great things you’ve ever heard about Amsterdam then times it by 10 and that’s exactly how awesome this city is, haha!
Instead of staying in a hotel in the more central tourist location, DCT and I rented a vacation apartment in the neighborhood known as the Jordaan. If you live or have ever been to Chicago, think of if the neighborhoods Wicker Park and Lincoln Park had a baby, it would be exactly like the Jordaan, haha! The apartment was amazing, as it was right on a canal and right above a quaint little pub. We arrived in Amsterdam in the early evening and after resting up from our long drive in (and dealing with a bit of a parking fiasco) we booked a last minute reservation to do a candlelight wine & cheese canal cruise, which ended up being the perfect way to spend our first night in Amsterdam.
Enjoy the photos of our cruise and us exploring eating and drinking our way through the city!
