Amsterdam had the most amazing art...
...and we had loads of yummy foods... like these apple tart with proper Dutch cream ('slagroom') and coffee with milk ('koffie-verkeerd')...
Strolling along the water streets of Amsterdam made us feel that this is real! We explored the 9-streets ('9 straatjies') area where lots of arts are being sold :)
Oh, and all the bookshops were amazing! Especially the 10th most beautiful bookshop in the world, 'The American bookshop' on Het Spui! Its claim to fame being a tree growing through its different levels.
...and then a visit to Amsterdam is not complete without cycling from Volendam to Marken and then catching the ferry back to Volendam... SO much fun!!
Then there were the art shops that I follow on facebook... that I had the chance of looking up in person!
Penelope Craft with the amazingly beautiful collection of wools was a certain highlight!!
We will always have the most amazing memories of this experience in a country with its language very close to our own - which added so much to make our experience more interesting!
