The sun beamed as we headed to historical Georgetown, about a 15 minute drive from our hotel. We walked along Main Street, Wisconsin Avenue and Prospect Street towards Georgetown University. The quaint streets and boutique shopping lured in tourists especially at Georgetown Cupcake, as they lined up like ants outside and around the street.
We hopped on a shuttle flight from Amsterdam to London and settled in for a 19 day stay. It sounds like forever doesn’t it!
We began with a 9 night stay at serviced apartment complex, 130 Queens Gate in Kensington. A fantastic location, only a few blocks from the park and 2 tube stops within a 5 minute walk too.
On an ordinary day with beautiful weather forecasted, Marlee and I headed out early with the kids for a big day of exploring the city’s best sights.
A brisk walk through little parks and over canals had us arriving at our first stop, the newly renovated Riksmuseum (National Museum). No visit to Amsterdam is complete without a visit here. Huge windows, smooth concrete floors and an abundance of natural light evoke such a calm and welcoming tone.
