Charming Amsterdam

We had the best girly holiday this summer with our incredibly beautiful mum in Amsterdam. The sun was shining for our entire stay and we can honestly say it made the sun shine within us too. We were stunned by the insane architecture, beautiful canals, friendly locals and the huge variety of things to do!


We would recommend everyone to visit Amsterdam at some point and take in it's charm - we are already planning our next trip out there! 

Since we have been back we haven't been able to stop our hands from picking up our pens and sketching out what a dream it was - take a look below at some of the things that have made us go WOW!!


  1. Hey Ellen! What a nice article! It looks like you girls had a great time! Is there any place you'd like to recommend to our community? Museums, Cafes, Bars... We love to discover hidden gems thanks to great travellers like you! We also LOVE your illustration and your pictures! It'd be great if we could share them on our social media channels - linking through your blog of course! Would you be interested? Thanks!

    1. Hello iDBUS, thank you so much for your kind words, we are so happy you enjoyed our adventures in Amsterdam! We would highly recommend Frankendael Park if you're looking for the perfect spot for a picnic under the trees. Bagels and Beans at Waterlooplein is a fantastic spot to grab some delicious breakfast and some fresh carrot juice before hitting up the Waterlooplein Flea market - we found some Birkinstocks for only 10.00 EUR! A canal trip is a MUST, you really get to fall in love with the charm of the city and feel what it would be like to live there!

      We would be absolutely honoured if you wanted to share our travellers information through your social media channels! Please feel free to email us on so that we can keep in touch

      We are also just planning our trip to San Fran in November so hopefully we can share our adventures with you then.

      Have a great evening !
