Amster-dayum

It’s been almost a month since my last blog post, why am I such a waste? Amsterdam has thrown me out of my writing rut, so I hope you enjoy this post as much as I enjoyed reminiscing about my trip with my bean pods (hey sam & ray)

I love me some European city breaks, so much so I decided to take 2 in one month, I know, so cheeky of me. I spoke about what I loved about Copenhagen, and now it’s Amsterdam’s time to shine.

 

WHY I BLOODY LOVE AMSTERDAM

  • Amsterdam Icebar

So this place was incredible, have you been in the situation when you don’t expect much from something because everyone tells you how good it is? I thought it would be overhyped, and be a huge letdown. I was wrong. For €15 we had 2 drinks and a cocktail (shout out to the shot of sambucca that warmed me the hell up), and 30 minutes in the Icebar, which believe me was more than enough. There is a backstory too which I wasn’t expecting, I’ll save the element of surprise for you all xoxo

  • Ripley’s Believe It Or Not

This was recommended by a bezzie, and I am glad I went. Unfortunately we were all pooped by the weekends antics that when we got there we spent over an hour in the café trying to evaluate our lives! This was €17 and was super interactive and interesting, the spinning tunnel was 100% my favourite part!

  • Red Light District

This was an experience to say the least. I have to say, I never thought that I would be able to say that I paid €2 to watch stand in a hot sardine can with two of my best pals watching people fucking, we proceeded to critique their form and it made me wonder about their backstory… I wonder when they first fucked? When would be their last? Who knows…

I would also hugely recommend the Red Light Secret’s museum, it was incredibly interesting and a bargain at €8. There is some hilarious factors such as a dress up photo booth and a confessions wall, shout out to the girl that had a foursome with 3 guys in Bali, they all had diarrhoea due to the food and they woke up in each others poo… I’m gonna finish this one here.

  • Halloween

Halloween in Amsterdam is something else, we went to a crazy ass party called Space and the commitment everyone was had was the best i’d ever seen. I can’t really comment too much on the night as I have 0 pictures and can’t remember all the weird and wonderful sights I experienced, instead have a picture of my lady gaga born this way tribute.

  • Sex Museum

For €4 this is a steal. I had such a laugh here, I can’t say I learnt much because I was laughing at all the interactive displays and pictures of people doing it, but there is a massive penis model you can have a picture with and if that’s not worth €4 then I don’t know what is!

  • Cocos Outback

Damn Coco you sure know how to show 3 girls a good time, 50% off food on a Monday!!! With vegetarian options!!! I didn’t realise how hard it would be to not eat meat (or cheese, I can’t eat cheese) in Amsterdam, but Cocos Outback saved the day with incredible hot chocolates and food 4 daiz. You NEED to check this place out. Massive foodie rep over here.

  • Dem Views

Views, just views. Amsterdam is a stunning place, and there is no doubt in my mind about going back. If you’re not into the legalised mary jane then please just go for the culture, the arts and the museums. To date, Amsterdam is still one of the most beautiful places I have been, and the strangest!

    I’ve been to Amsterdam twice and I love it! The sex museum is so funny, the first time I went me and my friends were drunk and it made it all the funnier. We went to the Heineken factory and it was great, so much to do and you get beer at the end!
