Amsterdam Holland

Posted Sep 05 2012 7:00pm

It’s hard to believe that Neal and I left for our honeymoon almost 2 months ago (and that we’ve been married for 2 months tomorrow).  To start our European honeymoon Neal and I flew to Amsterdam Holland for a 2 day stay.

Amsterdam, Holland

After 2 flights, we landed in Amsterdam early afternoon on Tuesday, July 10.  The train ride from the airport to Central Station was very easy and brought us within 1/2 a mile of our hotel, Inntel Hotels Amsterdam Centre .

After we dropped off our bags Neal and I hit the town, walking miles around the city.

The canals were just amazing and I loved being able to walk alongside them throughout the city.

Touring Amsterdam was a true joy for Neal as his roots lie in Holland (Netherlands).

Our walk took us through many of Amsterdam’s Red Light districts and boy are those women comfortable standing in windows naked.  Not my thing, but it was interesting to see to say the least.

Our walk also took us to Amsterdam Square, home of the famous I AMsterdam sign.

We also enjoyed many authentic meals while in Amsterdam.

For our first dinner we enjoyed Hotspots, which was like a deconstructed shepherds pie in my opinion.

We also tried a savory dutch pancake which was fantastic!

Our second day in the Netherlands took us to the town of Rozendaal (more on that trip to come) but day 3 gave us a chance to see even more of the city.

One of my favorite parts of the city was the Flower Market.

Alongside one of the canals, the Flower Market is home to a dozen flower shops, lots of souvenir shops, and FANTASTIC cheese shops!

Close to the Flower Market is also the Anne Frank House which Neal and I decided not to see.  I will say though, if you ever go to Amsterdam, go to the museum first thing in the morning.  The lines were always crazy when we walked by.

Before we knew it our time in the Netherlands was done and we were on our way to Wolsfeld, Germany, my home from age 5-8.

Amsterdam was beautiful and I will treasure my memories from there forever.  I hope to take our kids there some day.
