This weekend, I went to Amsterdam! It was a whirlwind trip to the land of windmills. We went out into the countryside to see these beautiful old power generators. They used to be used to pump water out of the city and make Amsterdam livable.
I also found the “diamond” clog. While it’s beautiful I prefer the intricately carved wooden ones.
I even got to try some on!
We followed up the trip with a traditional Dutch lunch.
The cafe was called “Moeders” and had pictures of mothers all over the walls. Anyone who eats there can bring in a photo to be hung and they have awesome mother’s day lunches!
The next morning we took a cruise down one of the main canals.
It was really fund to see the cute old town! We also got to see Anne Frank’s House. I decided not to take any photos inside and immerse myself in the experience, but here is a picture of the outside.
We stood in line for two hours but it was worth it! Then we went to Amsterdam’s Ice Bar to finish the trip.
The entire bar is completely made of glass and is themed as an old Dutch merchant ship.
Overall it was a great weekend. I hope to come back in the spring to see the Tulips in full bloom.
