Morning everyone! I’m excited today as I’ve woken up in beautiful Holland this morning. I’m over for a weekend visiting old friends and I just cannot wait to be in the buzz of Amsterdam. Amsterdam has a very special place in my heart, I am in love with the beauty of the canals, the stylish design boutiques and the abundance of awesome places to eat. Everything is just stylish in Amsterdam. I’ll be taking lots of photos while I’m here so I can share it all with you.

Right now I’m drinking my morning coffee and preparing for the adventures today has in store for me. There is something a little bit heavenly about having a relaxed morning, making yourself a coffee and musing about where the day will take you.

My friend has one of these machines that uses nespresso pods, they are very popular here in Holland and the coffee tastes sublime. Big on their real coffee I’ve heard they think we are a little bit barbaric with our instant coffee over in the UK and I have to say I might just agree.

The Dutch, like the Italians know there is nothing better than real coffee! Similar to over in Italy, there is a lovely coffee culture here with many stylish cafes where you can sit outside on the terrace and watch the world go by. It has to be one of my favourite things to do and I will certainly be paying a visit to one or two this weekend.
