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.
“Some tourists think Amsterdam is a city of sin, but in truth it is a city of freedom. And in freedom, most people find sin.” – John Green
We flew from Prague to Amsterdam and after a short transfer from Schiphol Airport, we arrived at our gorgeous Air BnB Rental. Wouter met us out the front and the first thing he commented on was all our luggage! I don’t think he had ever seen so many bags in his life. We made ourselves comfortable as he showed us around his beautiful home. The kids were in love with the back room, a perfect hideaway for the kids to play and watch Danish cartoons.
The house was opposite a primary school and every morning we loved watching the ritual of the school drop-off as parents rode cargo bikes with up to 3 children in a basket on the front.
