Amsterdam

So last week I went to Amsterdam for a couple of days. Within 30 minutes of strolling around the city, I had fallen in love with it. It's the perfect kind of city: laid-back and full of places to visit and things to see.


The view from the hotel


 The view from the hotel I stayed in which was on the Amstel canal


 One of the (many) canals!


Blending in with the hotel's furniture


One of the massive iamsterdam signs which were around the city


Dutch tulips


Anne Frank memorial




Relaxing in Vondelpark with raspberries from a little fruit and veg shop


Van Gogh graffiti


A quotation from the booklet from Anne Frank's house


The canal by the hotel


Flowers surrounding one of the houses on the canal opposite the hotel


All the little caf├ęs on Rembrandt Square had cats roaming about/sleeping on chairs!

I'm definitely going to visit again (sometime soon, hopefully!) and would love to live there for a bit (wishful thinking for a university student)
