For christmas I surprised Kyle with a little get away to Amsterdam, although we live together and see each other every day it was so lovely spending some quality time together, and what's better than exploring a new city together. We travelled on the ferry overnight so in total we had 2 days and 1 night stay in Amsterdam, which gave us time to do everything we wanted to do but it also flew by.
I admit it, I fell in love with the city. The streets, the canal, the atmosphere, everything was beautiful. We spent most of the first day wandering round, trying out every pastry possible and even stopped to watch a street performer. Being typical tourists we visited the sex museum, which was eye opening to say the least, and we also went to Amsterdam dungeons, where I hid in the corner hoping for it to end (I love scary things but I am also a wimp). We visited Anne Franks house, if you're ever in Amsterdam you need to go. Curiosity made us wander up the red light district, it wasn't what I expected, although we did venture up on a Sunday afternoon so it was pretty quiet, nether the less it's another thing ticked off my list.
I would go back to this city in a heart beat.
