City Squares | Amsterdam

City-Squares-Amsterdam

 

I am still so sad that we only got to spend a day-ish in Amsterdam. Such a beautiful, fun city with so much to see and do. I was surprised, given Amsterdam’s more well-known vices, that there was actually plenty to experience outside of that. Although we only got to go to one museum, I hear they are all amazing! I’m itching to go back already and visit Anne Frank’s house, rent some bikes, go to the Rijksmuseum, and take a boat tour along the canals.

My favorites:
1. the Van Gogh Museum! What an incredible collection of his works! (also, near this museum is a small stand where they sell waffles. Those were so, so delicious!)
2. the Sunday market, where we picked up some apricots, strawberries, and roasted cornish hens and had a feast beside a random canal.
3. Gouda cheese samples from any cheese store! It was great fun, also, to be taught the proper pronunciation of ‘gouda’
4. Dutch pancakes. I don’t quite recall the name of hte place we had our pancakes, but heard really good things about this place. Poffertjes are baby puffy pancakes and they are a must-try!
