The Breakfast Club – Amsterdam, Netherlands

The Breakfast Club – Amsterdam, Netherlands

  We ate our first breakfast in Amsterdam at a restaurant called The Breakfast Club.   We found this place by coincidence and I’m so happy that we did! We had just arrived in Amsterdam and wanted to find a nice breakfast place when it out of nowhere started to hail! We stood in the middle of the street with our phones in our hands, trying to find anything nearby when a dutch woman appeared and asked if we needed help. How…

Coffee & Coconuts – Amsterdam, Netherlands

Coffee & Coconuts – Amsterdam, Netherlands

  One of the coolest restaurants we visited in Amsterdam most have been Coffee & Coconuts.   We went there for breakfast during our second day in the city, and I have to say that I’m impressed! The restaurant is three stories high and it’s built in an old cinema where they have kept a lot of the original architecture from the 1920’s which I (the architecture nerd) of course, loved. I had a smoothie bowl and a croissant and my…

Corner Bakery – Amsterdam, Netherlands

Corner Bakery – Amsterdam, Netherlands

  Whoever said money can’t buy happiness, has obviously never bought a Freak Shake from the Corner Bakery in Amsterdam, haha!   I was looking on Instagram for cool places to visit in Amsterdam before our trip there when I came across a photo with one of these amazing milkshakes and pretty much decided on the spot that I had to go there. The Corner Bakery offers many different kinds of sweets and I honestly wanted to try them all but I had…

Hotel2Stay – Amsterdam, Netherlands

Post contains affiliate links     During our visit to Amsterdam, we stayed at Hotel2Stay*.   It’s a hotel next door to Sloterdijk Station where you can get to the airport in 10 minutes or the Central Station in 5 minutes with the train. We lived in a Queen Studio with a big double bed and a fully functional kitchen, and the hotel also offers a gym, sauna, and a rooftop “garden”.   Me and my boyfriend have very different travel styles…

Travel Diary: Amsterdam Day 3

Travel Diary: Amsterdam Day 3

  We started our third (and last) day in Amsterdam with packing all of our stuff and checking out of the hotel.   We left our bags (which apparently were four this time, weird since we only had two when we got there, haha) in the hotel’s storage area and headed out to take the tram into the city. We lived next to the station Sloterdijk and even though we saw the big bike parking every day, it still amazed me…

Travel Diary: Amsterdam Day 2

Travel Diary: Amsterdam Day 2

  I am home in Stockholm again, but I have still two days left from Amsterdam to write about.   We started our second day in Amsterdam with breakfast at Coffee & Coconuts (which has the coolest interior ever!) and honestly had my best breakfast experience ever. I would probably hang here every day if I lived in Amsterdam, haha!       After breakfast, we pretty much just walked around and enjoyed the beautiful city. I have a thing for cute…

Travel Diary: Amsterdam Day 1

Travel Diary: Amsterdam Day 1

  I got up at 2 am this morning to travel to Amsterdam with my boyfriend.   I’ve never been to the Netherlands before (if you don’t count my visit on the Dutch island Sint Maarten in the Carribean in 2009, which I don’t) so I have been super excited about going here! We took the early morning flight and started our day in Amsterdam with a taxi ride to our hotel to drop off our bags and then head out to find…
