Hey, so I was a little MIA (I basically have no idea what that actually stands for btw) this weekend because I was in the beautiful city of Amsterdam! Now that I don’t live in England which is surrounded by shit tons of water, I can actually just hop on a train and merry on over to the Netherlands, wunderbar!
P:S: i would just like to say that the coat is actually my boyfriend’s hence why I’ve got this whole michelin man thing going on.
Apart from being incredibly beautiful, Amsterdam in October is also incredibly freeeeeeezing especially when you’re sailing around on a canal boat (I know- hard life huh?).
Amsterdam has to be one of my favourite capital cities (sorry London you just don’t cut the mustard) because it’s just so unbelievably weird. There are these completely normal shops where you can buy beautiful jewelry or even vintage clothes and then right next door there are all these weed/sex shops and everbody just walks around like its the most normal thing in the world (except for these random tourists shouting about magic mushrooms). Not to mention that the Dutch are probably the friendliest people in the world, even when you get in their way when they’re cycling (in Germany, you would definitley be called an Arsch for that ).
However as wonderful as the Dutch are, Gouda, will never quite be as good as cheddar (although they do know a thing or 2 about waffles smothered in nutella and chips and mayo) and because Amsterdam is a capital city expect queues, pricey entrance fees (although there are lots of deals) and even more expensive food (bring some Jaffa cakes to munch on in between bridges).
