So this is the continuation of my previous post on Amsterdam. If you haven’t read part 1 then the link is as follows:
Day 2 – The weather in Amsterdam was excellent, we biked our way through the beautiful streets of Amsterdam, enjoying the amazing weather. Point to mention – The locals here were so damn good looking. Blue eyes blond hair and all that. Not only were they good looking but to my surprise they were extremely friendly and smiley! No Wonder why Netherlands is considered to be one among the most ‘happiest’ countries in the world. Also they speak English fluently hence there was no communication problem. So Day 2 was like the best day for me in the entire trip but I’m afraid I cant say the same thing for Fayu. It was the best day for me because I SHOPPED till I DROPPED (ok not exactly dropped, but till Fayu dragged me out of the store). More on ‘shopping with me in Amsterdam’ in another post.
So what did we do on Day 2?
We went to The Centre – This is where you will find all the entertainment of Amsterdam, you’ll find nightclubs, concert venues, casinos, some dodgy coffee shops with dodgy stuff, movie theaters, shops in this neighborhood.
The Nine Little Streets, as the name suggests this is a set of nine streets that run between the Prinsengracht and Singel canals and have a lot to offer in terms of shopping. Gazzillion H&M stores, Pull & Bear, Bershka, Kiko, Stradivarius etc
And when you get tired of shopping you eat Crepe’s & Waffles 😀
Next stop Vondelpark – This is a gorgeous English style park with ponds, lawns, footbridges and winding footpaths. You will see a lot of tourists, cyclists, fitness enthusiasts, lovers enjoying their time in park. Although the Vondelpark receives over 10 million visitors per year, it never feels too crowded to enjoy.
After cycling for a long time we got hungry again got ourselves Stroopwafels from Lanskroon. Stroopwafels is a popular dutch waffle made from two thin layers of baked dough with a caramel filling in the middle. They are absolutely delicious and a must try when in Amsterdam!
We went to Leidseplein – a crowded area with many restaurants & cafes. If you do not like crowded ares then you should avoid this place altogether. We went there to have authentic Dutch Cuisine. We Chose to go to De Blauwe Hollander, a decent place to get some dinner.
Other things to do in Amsterdam is visit some of its Museums. Amsterdam has great Museums but we dint go to Museums as we dint have the time, Hopefully we would do that the next time! A common misconception about this gorgeous city is that it only hasDrugs & Sex to offer, which is not true at all & there are many other things you could do here to enjoy this place. It has rich history and has many beautiful places to see.We were very impressed by the dutch hospitality and would say that it is an interesting city you will fall in love with..
Until Next Time Guys!
