Amsterdam on Film

Whilst taking a break from the blog I headed to Amsterdam for my boyfriends 21st birthday. It was his surprise present from me and we absolutely loved it. Amsterdam is the coolest city with the most relaxed vibe ever and we cannot wait to go back again. I'm sharing some photos I took alongside what we got up to, ate and stayed whilst there. I hope you enjoy and if you've never been to Amsterdam, it gives you some inspiration!

Where we stayed

The Bolster

I discovered this place whilst trying to find a hotel with a similar vibe to The Hoxton but without the price tag and stumbled across this beauty. It has such a cool minimal vibe, lots of navy, grey and dark wood. It was my dream, the beds were so comfy and the bathrooms were equally as cool! I would definitely recommend, it's in the middle of everything and we were able to walk everywhere easily.

Where we ate

Lotti's Cafe Bar & Grill

So on the Saturday was Garloks actual birthday so I booked a brunch in the morning at The Hoxtons in house restaurant, Lotti's. The food was absolutely amazing, we stuffed our faces, with everything from avo toast to mac'n'cheese.

For the evening on Saturday, we had dinner here, a steak restaurant. It was raining hard that evening, so we had a steak, which was so melt in your mouth good, then because of the rain stayed longer for a dessert. It was quite literally the best evening with amazing food and company. 

The Happy Pig Pancake Shop

I googled like crazy to find the best pancakes in Amsterdam and this one popped up a lot. We headed here because they also do a selection of waffles too, which Garlok went for. It was the perfect sweet treat and I'm still dreaming of that yummy pancake now!

Must Dos!

Finally I just quickly wanted to mention what I think are must do's when in the this city! We got a canal ride and tour in the afternoon which was amazing and we got to sit back and relax whilst learning all about the history of Amsterdam. Also I think visiting the Ann Frank Museum is a must, we didn't go this time but I have been before and it is so eye opening!
