Heyhey, here I am again. I went with my mom to Amsterdam this Tuesday and I’ll be telling you all about it today!!
Before I start, this is probably going to be a long blogpost, but don’t get scared, there are lots of pictures included!!!!
It was so hot this Tuesday, it was 27 degrees Celsius (80 degrees Fahrenheit) but we went anyways. We went by car which is about 2 hours driving. We first went to a fabric store, because my mum liked that. I didn’t make any pictures of that. After that we went to the
ALBERT CUIJP MARKET
The Albert Cuijp Market is actually a really famous market in Amsterdam. You can get there really fun stuff for a cheap price. The clothes are also cute and unique, and not very pricey. I have to say, it was the hottest at this market. The shops didn’t have airco so I didn’t want to go in all the shops. You could also buy some typical Dutch food at this market, like stroopwafels. At the time we ended the market we went to Bagels and Beans.
Ohh yes, I love bagels and beans. You can get the best bagels over there and I also had a strawberry and banana smoothie. By the way, how fun is that last picture? I definitely needed to take a picture of that quote!
After we ate some lunch, we took a little walk to the centre of Amsterdam.
And we couldn’t resist going to Starbucks on our way..
Anne is a typical Dutch name and they couldn’t even spell that right! I had a caramel frappuccino and my mum had a shaken iced tea with mango, black tea and lemonade!
We visited the Leidsestraat and than walked in the Kalverstraat. I love the Kalverstraat, they have lots of stores I like. One of my favorite shop is Stradivarius. I fitted a lot of clothes at that store!
Yes, I fitted a lot! And I didn’t even showed you everything! This is actually not a haul, because I didn’t buy all the clothes you see here. There will be a haul-blogpost coming up at the end of the week!
After walking all the way through the Kalverstraat, we reached the
That white thing in the middle of the picture (looks like a men’s banana) is our National Monument. It reminds us of the 2nd World War.
De Bijenkorf is a pretty famous warehouse here, it sells more expensive brands in make-up, fashion and jewelry. A couple of brands they sell are Dior, MAC, Saint Laurent, Gucci and Ted Baker.
Royal Palace of Amsterdam
You can see here a beer bike, okay this one is fun. This is a bike where about 10/15 people can sit and bike and drink beer. It’s used a lot at bachelor party’s!
After enjoying a little time at the Dam Square, we went to Primark. That’s located at the Nieuwendijk, also a great shopping street. And I fitted a lot of clothes once again!
I really like the Primark at Amsterdam. I feel like their clothes are different than the Primark near me. Of course I picked up some pieces which I’ll show you in my upcoming haul!
We also went to C&A where I saw this dress that looked really cute in the store but awful on me!
To end up this fun day we ate sushi at Sumo and OMG it was delicious. My favorite one was with avocado and sweet potato. It may be a weird combination but it was delicious!!
Going back home at 9.30 pm. You see a picture of the highway around Amsterdam. We had to follow Hengelo which was almost 150 km away. (and after Hengelo it is only 20 minutes driving to get home)
As I mentioned a couple of times now, there will be going a haul up on my blog soon. I hope on Saturday but I’m not sure if I’ll make that!
Have you ever been to Amsterdam and what were your favorite spots and shops? Let me know in the comments down below.
