One of the loveliest cities by night. The bridges and streets are lit up and the canals reflect the lights.
Touring Amsterdam – Canals and Markets
You know you’re in Heineken land when even the bottle opener in your hotel room says Heineken on it.
Love locks are appearing on bridges all over the world. We found these in Paris and Amsterdam. What was once a romantic gesture made by couples who want their love to be locked together forever, is now a nuisance that countries are trying to stop.
We discovered an incredible artist – Faktor Inc.- in the art market of Amsterdam who was making jewelry that she called “mermaid jewelry”, and I can certainly imagine a mermaid wearing it.
Found the cutest cupcake stand in Amsterdam.
Our last day in Amsterdam, filled with pictures of boats and canals.
I was holding out for the best pastries, and when I got to Holtkamp I stopped looking. I got sucked in the door by the meringues in the window, but it was the cakes that were really incredible.
These wedding cake toppers are so unique. They are made by hand by Peter en Jeannette in Amsterdam. Some are for gay couples, some for a reluctant groom, and there is one of a pregnant bride that Jeannette had just finished that morning. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
We got a behind the scenes look at the staff of the Intercontinental Hotel preparing for an event. The hotel is really spectacular.
