Our final day and a half in Amsterdam! I honestly wasn’t ready to leave, there is so much to do and see you could easily go for a week and not get bored. We spent the day wandering the streets, looking at the architecture, eating lots of yummy food and generally soaking up our last day on holiday.
We went to what is now I think officially my favourite cafe by the advice of Betty magazine; Coffee & Coconuts. I wish I could just completely copy it and have it closer to me because I would honestly be in there almost every day working on my iPad, drinking coffee and eating the most amazing coconut pancakes ever (and becoming penniless & fat). It was in an old Art Deco cinema (AHHH), plants everywhere, bean bags to lounge on, everyone was really nice. It was perfect!
Also, if you are a lover of GOOD QUALITY clean, well cared for and well curated vintage, with actual nice/not intimidating people in store, something I feel is very lacking in the UK right now, Amsterdam is a must for you. Especially Laura Dols. I had been here once before when I was around 19 on an art foundation trip and remember buying a grey knitted tank top. This time I could have come out with an entirely new wardrobe, but I was on a budget (not that this place was expensive,AT ALL), so I just bought a cute little embroidered “peasant top” – I don’t really know what else to call it? But it’s cute. And it was only €25. I bet the exact same top would have been £35+ in the UK.
And thus concludes our time in Amsterdam. If we go again I’d like to be a little more ‘cultural’ and visit more museums and things, but we were just so happy wandering that before we knew it, it was time to go home!
