Weekend Adventure: Amsterdam

Back in May over the first weekend of the month, George and I made a trip to Amsterdam with our new American friends, Jared and Rachel. None of us had been to Amsterdam before and it seemed like it would be an easy place to drive to over the bank holiday weekend.

But it turned out to be so much better than we expected. I mean I know all of the usual reasons someone would visit Amsterdam, only I never thought it would be so pretty!

On our way there, we stopped at one destination that was a little farther outside the city called Zaanse Schans. Zaanse Schans is like a fake village with all the touristy things about the Netherlands crammed into its grounds including windmills, cheese, and clogs. But we loved it! It was such a cute place to walk around and of course to sample some cheese and chocolate.
