    A Guide to Amsterdam

    Being stuck in bed after you’ve just come back from holiday would, for the most part, be a delight for me – except when I’ve come down with a stomach bug. Throwing up on an empty stomach is not the one. I was meant to have this Amsterdam post up basically a couple of days after I came back, but alas – cold sweats, back pains and various other ailments prevented me from doing so. Anyway, moving on from my failing body… We chose the perfect time to go to Amsterdam because the weather was perfect. Not too hot, not too cold. I love Amsterdam – there is so much…

(Warning: there is a photo of me on a giant penis sculpture at the end of this post) DAY 2 McDonalds is the cure to everything. Sore throat? McDonalds. High fever? McDonalds. Hangover?

    When in Amsterdam

    Every time I visit a new place, I fall in love. There hasn’t been a place that I’ve travelled too, and haven’t fallen in love with at least one aspect of the place. Amsterdam is no exception. As soon as I arrived, I fell deeply and irrevocably in love with the city. A tad dramatic, perhaps, but the truth. I wish I were back there now. DAY 1 Plans from the night before were dashed aside, as I had an early flight. Despite our flight not being until 11, we had to get to the airport early because 1) I’m an early person, and I hate rushing and 2) I…
