I spent the last the last two weeks travelling. On our way back there was a 5 hour layover in Amsterdam. I was happy to have some time to explore the city, but I didn't get much of a chance to see many museums. I did do a bit of shopping, and drank the most delicious hot chocolate in a lovely cafe.
|We arrived in Amsterdam very early in the day, so not many things were open. |
But this Candy store looked amazing from the outside too!
|There were candy stores, bakeries and cafes on almost every corner.|
|And so many cool posters for shows and events. I'd love to see this city come to life at night.|
|Even in the middle of January, on a grey, rainy morning, the flower market was buzzing with activity.|
|This store was positively amazing. It carried all kinds of alternative styles: Gothic, Victorian, Lolita and more...|
|...And the interior felt like walking into a fairy tale. The store sold clothing, trinkets, oddities, and jewelry.|
|This strange creature was carved into one of the elaborate displays in the store.|
|There were so many thing that were still left to see. I didn't make it to the art museums, or the "Amsterdam Dungeon" (above), or the Red-light district. All the more reason to go back.|
I was a pretty good way to spend a layover, and I can't wait until I can go back and spend a full trip in Amsterdam!
