I’ve been brushing up on my Dutch because….we’re off to Amsterdam! My boyfriend and I have been thinking about going for over a year now, but it wasn’t top of the list of places we wanted to go so we never really looked into it properly. But, the recent rubbish weather has prompted us – me – to want to go away and the first place I thought of was Amsterdam!
I’m lucky really, in that I can say to the boyf ‘shall we go to (enter place name here)’ and he will always say yes. So a couple of weeks ago I gave him the heads up and politely asked if he wanted to go to Amsterdam, he gave the expected nod and we – I – got planning.
I’m a big fan of Hotels.com at the moment, and they’d sent me a tasty little discount code so I got looking for a nice hotel to stay in that wouldn’t break the bank. Flights were easy to come by, but the cheapest ones I could find were in 2 weeks time. Luckily for us, the biggest commitment we have is jobs, so time was quickly booked off and 8 days before we’re due to leave we booked everything! If we’d been a bit more savvy and booked it earlier we could have saved ourselves a bit of money, but you live and you learn as they say.
So, this Saturday we’re nipping over and I’m looking forward to it! Weather forecast isn’t great, and this will be our first trip where it’s rained so that’ll be something different. I’ve got the obligatory Lonely Planet city guide and found some wicked things to do…should be fun!
