It’s the first payday weekend of the year and you can hear a collective sigh country-wide as everyone finally has a bit of cash in their pockets. With most of us getting paid prior to Christmas it felt like a long old month, but all of that’s in the past now and if you’re planning to spend some dollahhhhs this weekend and treat yourself to a night on the town DO I HAVE A RECOMMENDATION FOR YOU.
Within the past year or so I’ve found myself developing a hankering to see the world. I’m not the most travelled person, only having been abroad since I hit adulthood, but with each passing day it feels like I want to explore more and more of the world.
Being active on social media and regularly reading blogs definitely adds to this, and I now find myself with a long list of places I want to visit, although none of the budget to allow me to do this.
As you’ve probably gathered from the posts of this week, I absolutely loved Amsterdam but I’m all too aware that in the short space of time I was there, I only managed to scratch the surface of what the city has to offer and there is so much more to do.
With this in mind I’ve already started doing some research for a return trip, hopefully next year, and have put together a little list of things I want to do in Amsterdam when I’m next there.
After our busy day exploring Amsterdam NOORD and indulging in a vegan Christmas in September with the ClinkNOORD team the night before, we awoke on Sunday morning bright and early for a day of exploring central Amsterdam.
As she had been there before, Haydy had set us a little itinerary for the day to make sure that I saw all the key parts of the city before we had to leave for the airport to catch our flight home.
Waking up in ClinkNOORD Amsterdam on our first full day in Amsterdam I felt ready and refreshed for the day ahead. A quick breakfast downstairs, a team-bonding “WTF?!” as we all collectively found out Kylie Jenner is allegedly pregnant, and we were off to meet the Clink team for a briefing as to the activities the day held in store for us.
As most visitors to the city tend to stay central, the team wanted to share with us some of what Amsterdam Noord had to offer. Being less frequented by tourists, it’s a real treasure trove of relatively unknown attractions and experiences, and we were going to spend the day finding out about them.
With my phone and camera at the ready, I was in full tourist mode and ready to find out more.
