Our second day in Amsterdam was all about cheese. Well, it was for me anyway. Not exactly what I expected to find in the Red Light District, but that cheese tasting experience was amazing and I bought the nicest cheesiest sandwich of the trip there.Yes we did see some models in the windows and I personally found it quite awkward while I was just trying to eat my sandwich in peace. I thoroughly enjoyed all of my cheese during my time in Amsterdam, particularly my cheese and apple pancake on Day 1. Anyway, I bought a lovely wheel of gouda to take home with me and as a cheese lover, I was ecstatic.
What else did I eat other than cheese? It is common for me to live off of desserts on holidays to avoid having to search for vegetarian food and Amsterdam didn’t disappoint in the dessert category. I was blown away by these waffles we ate on our way to the Anne Frank house. I. would 100% recommend any of these desserts.
Our second day in Amsterdam was spent walking around the canals and being chilled out, soaking up the atmosphere of this wonderful city. Number one on my to do list for Amsterdam was always the Anne Frank house. It was an incredibly interesting and emotional experience walking around the house and learning more about the history of this wonderful girl. I didn’t take any pictures inside, but I would 100% recommend a visit. Remember to book your tickets online beforehand with a time slot to avoid the horrific queues out the front.
From here, we took the tram back and then walked up towards the NEMO Science museum. We took the lift up to the roof to enjoy the views of the city and tried to decide what to have for dinner, before our flight home. We thought about all the things we had done in Amsterdam and talked about what we would do if we came back. I did suggest the A’DAM Lookout swing, but I’m not sure if she was so keen.
Our last meal in Amsterdam was…. Mcdonalds. Unfortunately their veggie burger was disappointing but I don’t think I can ever be disappointed by Mcdonalds fries. They got bonus points, because there were disco lights on the ceiling and that really added to the Mcdonalds experience.
Overall an amazing weekend but I would have loved to have had more time and done more. See you next time Amsterdam!
