I have always wanted to visit Amsterdam so when I was chosen for this European programme and I found out that I was going to Antwerp, I googled it's location and as soon as I saw that it is just by the border of Netherlands, then and there I made up my mind that I have to go to Amsterdam before my programme ends and that I did.
I have never been to Netherlands before so excitement was the understatement of the year when the time came closer to visiting Amsterdam.
We (myself and my gal pals from my programme) only had 48 hours in the city as we all had work so I did my research of what we need to do and see most.
We got up really early on a Sunday morning to catch a 7:45 train which meant we were in Amsterdam for around 10:30. We ate food, got our 48hr tram tickets and then headed out to check in to our hotel and then we set out to see the city.
The city is famous for many things one of them being their countless number of canals and bridges and trust me when I say that they really are picture perfect.
After spending a few good minutes taking photos of canals we moved on to go to the place we all wanted to visit most: the Anne Frank museum. On the way there, we stumbled upon this street full of street art/graffiti, which I actually didn't see on any websites when I was doing my research so I was really pleased we did.
The museum greeted us with a long queue and because we only had 48 hrs we all agreed to come back early the next day to beat the long queue. Therefore, we moved on to visit Rijkmuseum to see 'I AMSTERDAM' and visit Van Gogh museum.
More from Amsterdam soon..stay tuned xo
