Amsterdam really surprised me last year when I visited. I booked it as a pit stop after spending a week in Paris, but I really fell in love with the place when I arrived.
Canals everywhere and the bikes lanes are a dream compared to what we have in Vancouver.
The local coffee scene is also fantastic. Many shops roast in-house and lots of pourover fans here too.
One of the cutest place we stopped by was De Hallen. This warehouse-like building is packed with food stalls and cute local shops.
Raclette and beer.
How cute are these shops? If my suitcase was big enough I'd take everything home.
Cocktails at Tail and Spirits, beautiful cocktail bar.
There were so many great spots I visited that I didn't even have time to take photos in. That's a sign of a fun trip, right?
