Road Trip: Amsterdam

X  -Travel Blog

In February 2016 – during the half term break,  I decided to take a 3 night flight out to Amsterdam – a beautiful city bursting with history, nature, art and fun!

…So who wouldn’t want to visit??

My brain is a bit of a sponge – learning and absorbing information everywhere, and so there was a list of museums and exhibitions I just HAD to explore! Among them were the infamous Van Gogh museum, The Amsterdam museum and Foam Photography museum alongside well known hot spots such as Dam Square and the surrounding areas of the Rijksmuseum!

If you ever find yourself booking a ticket to Amsterdam make sure you visit the attractions mentioned to make the most of your trip!  –  However if you find yourself preoccupied with the legal smoke available, or the women, at least take your time to absorb  your surroundings…

…There is creativity everywhere!
