Loved up shopping in Amsterdam

Gone are my days of toasting on a hot beach, melting into a book. It’s not that i’d pass up the chance, but with two peely wally men in my life, i’ve starting to embrace other kinds of holidays. Our honeymoon was no exception. We spent five amazing days wandering around the scented streets of Amsterdam. What a stylish city!

I’m rather nosey by nature and loved walking back to our apartment in the evening stealing glances into those enormous canalside houses. What great taste these Amsterdamers have. Everything was clean lines, quirky antiques, beautiful artwork. Extreme house envy ensued.

What also impressed me were the shops. Amongst all the crappy souvenir and sex shops were plenty of lovely wee shops selling handmade, locally crafted, retro and kitsch goodies. Windows piled with mountains of blue and white china, hand knitted chunky throws, upcycled furniture, I was in love…
