Back in May this year, we did a short weekend trip to Nederlands and took Melissa along. This was only my second time to Amsterdam, and I have to admit, although I loved it the first time (in autumn), I didn’t really like it much this time round in summer. it was CROWDED. very very crowded. But that’s still okay – except it was also quite dirty even in major tourist areas – beer bottles, cigarette butts. And the worst was pretty boats full of bachelor and bachelorette parties!!! The kind where most people are quite drunk in the middle of the day…. And if weren’t on boats, then just random tourists from everywhere all quite drunk and loud and rowdy. But if you could get away from these crowded areas and find the quiet hidden lanes and canals…. then you could see the lovely Amsterdam again.
This time we also took the tulip route!!! Last year we visited Keukenhof, and this time, I wanted to see the tulip fields – and we did!!! STUNNING>… Here are some pics:
