Greetings from Amsterdam!

I love Amsterdam because I have wonderful nostalgic feelings for it. I have great memories from Amsterdam when I was a uni student.

We arrived in Zaandam last friday to stay with good old friends from uni. Our kids love it and have met before last year. Luke enjoyed his stay with his favourite Dutch friends! We arranged for the kids to go to a indoor playground on Sunday and they had a blast, many tears when we left the playground. Zaandam is a great destination for anyone visiting Holland. It is only minutes from Amsterdam with the train. There is loads of things to do and it’s such a beautiful town.

On Monday I arrived in Amsterdam to visit a very good friend of mine that I met in 1998, when I had just arrived in Holland. During the day I just did some touristic stuff with Luke. On Tuesday we spent the day at Artis Amsterdam Zoo. It was just such a great day, the sun was shinning and the weather warmed up a little. It is a great attraction for adults and kids. You also have a planetarium and a aquarium too. Luke loved it!

I went to visit my old professors at Uni and that was such a nostalgic meeting! The Uni has been re-furbished and looks completely different but super modern. It was good to have a chat and catch up!!

After that I took Luke for a boat ride through Amsterdam’s canals. He loved it. We had a bite to eat and past through The Dam Square. We bought some souvenirs and went back to our friends house. The next day we said bye bye to Amsterdam and to our wonderful friends!
