Amsterdam Yees De Jongenbrug Canal


This past August I made my way to Amsterdam for the first time. It was a quick weekend trip where I spent half of it in one of my new favourite hotels and the other half at a friend’s who was living right on one of the canals.

For a city I had never had the desire to visit, I came away from it completely smitten. Perhaps it was because the weather was picture perfect or because the city was in pure celebration mode (400 years of the canals and 100th anniversary of the symphony). Whatever it was, I was inspired, relaxed and very content during the trip.

I’ve written about all my favourite things to do, see and eat in Amsterdam on my travel site, as well I’ve pinned (and mapped) them all on Pinterest. If you’ve been and have any favourite things to add, I’d love to know them!

    Loved Staalstraat area! Great shopping, eating, cafes, and people watching. Enjoyed dessert at Cafe Puccini ( and then chocolate shopping at Puccini Bomboni. (Not the same owners.)

    I went in the winter (November) and was equally enthralled by the city! It is always beautiful and magical…
