Tulips from ..

Amsterdam, where else. Hubby and I went to Amsterdam at the start of September for a few days, and we had a lovely time.

We crossed from Newcastle on the DFDS ferry - suffice to day that neither of us will be going on a cruise holiday any time soon!! We were delayed for 4 hours arriving due to gale force winds overnight - thankfully the return journey was much smoother.

Our hotel was nice and very central, which was good.

 Of course we went on a canal cruise and enjoyed some lovely views.

 Everywhere you go in Amsterdam there are bikes and people on bikes - you have to really watch out or get run down by one.

We went to the Van Gogh Museum, which was really good and of course the Diamond Museum. We found a Museum and Handbag Museum, which we just had to go to - as I am rather fond of handbags!!

That sounds like a super trip :-) I've never been to Amsterdam but I'd love to visit it one day. Great photos, they make me want to go there even more!!

How lovely. I shall go to bed dreaming of mice in windmills. Wearing clogs of course.

i loved amsterdam when i went with a group of girlfriends several years ago. we went to lots of places but my favourite was the van gogh museum and rembrandt's house. it was amazing to see their work up close.
i loved the atmosphere of the city and we had lots of sore feet with all the walking
