Abroad Photo Diary: Amsterdam

Prost from Amsterdam! I'm back in Florence for a few more hours before I fly out to my next destination tomorrow morning, but I wanted to share (a few too many) photos from Amsterdam this past weekend. We were so blessed with the most beautiful weather as well as some amazing food (the perfect Easter brunch = a fat avocado toast tbh). This was one of the destinations I wanted to visit the most and it surpassed every expectation! 

Tulip heaven 

Stroop waffels were as delicious as they look

The brunch of our dreams

Kind of wish I could steal this and put it in my apartment


Things to do:

+ Moco Museum
If you do one museum in Amsterdam this one must be it. It seemed really aimed at millennials/ had a lot of art relating to today's pop culture. I'm not the biggest museum girl (oops) but I loved this one. 

+ House of Bols Cocktail Museum
Literally the most random museum ever but for under 20 euro you get to see the history of cocktails and pick which one you want at the end. A fun way to spend an hour in the afternoon!

+ Explore De Pijp
This was the cutest area ever, full of little restaurants, juice bars, and shops. It's also close to the canal which is a really pretty view. 

+ Find Tulips
If you go during peak tulip season (pretty much anytime after February I believe), you will see tulips everywhere. We happened to go during the tulip festival and they were so gorgeous. 

Restaurant Recommendations: 

+ Blond Amsterdam
Probably the most precious restaurant I've ever seen (not even being dramatic). We just stopped in for a coffee and juice while we were waiting for our reservation at the Avocado Show but wow you MUST go see this place. They have a ton of pottery to buy (sounds weird but think mugs, glasses, plates, etc.) that are so adorable. 

+ Avocado Show 
A tiny bit overrated but also how can you not eat here?! We had Easter brunch here and absolutely loved the avocado fries. 

+ Vegan Junk Food Bar
This place was so good we went twice! I wouldn't consider myself someone who tries to eat vegan but their vegan burger was so delish. The coolest atmosphere too. 

+ Corner Bakery
The brunch at Corner Bakery was mouthwatering and did not disappoint. My friend Addison had the red velvet pancakes and I had the brioche french toast and we both highly recommend. 

Have you been to Amsterdam?
