Accidentally took a hiatus from blogging this past month…oops! But I’m back and here to tell you about my recent trip to Amsterdam.
What’s funny about this trip is the last time we internationally traveled was in December 2019 (thanks COVID) and our last trip was to Amsterdam. Since then, I thought I lost my travel bug. The thought of planning international travel with all that’s going on in the world, the possibility of getting sick, the airlines being kind of a mess…it just wasn’t that appealing to me.
This trip back to Amsterdam was very low pressure because 1. I’ve been there before and we saw A LOT the last time we went and 2. I was tagging along on my fiancés work trip so a lot was already planned for us.
It was a very low key trip and I was alone most days, but the great thing about Amsterdam is that it’s super walkable and the people are so incredibly friendly. I went to:
The Moco – one of my favorite part of the the trips, it was a very cool museum and I got to see some Banksy pieces.
Rijksmuseum – there was an awesome photography exhibit on the waste crisis.
Fashion for good – a cute and small museum about sustainable fashion.
A night tour of the canals.
The Miffy store where I got the cutest Miffy nightlight.
A day trip to Bruges, Belgium which had GREAT food but the atmosphere was a little touristy.
Amsterdam is one of my favorite cities to travel to. Tell me one of your favs in the comments!
