Quick travel guide to Amsterdam

A few weeks ago, we met up with some amazing friends of ours from back home in Amsterdam! Their names are Colin and Paige: they have been friends of ours for years! Paige has an awesome blog too, by the way! Head over to for all your anxiety and self-care needs! She doesn't disappoint.

Oh yeah, did I mention this was a Babymoon for them?

Back to Amsterdam,

I have no qualms with a liberal lifestyle and stoners galore, but I had my reservations about this picture perfect city allegedly full of sin and canals...but wowza. I was blown away. Many of the places that we visit, we talk about going back to. But rarely are we already planning another trip before we even leave!

Amsterdam was this place. It's not what you think. It's more. There's history and art and food and great people and tons of fun to be had. We found ourselves saying to one another, almost in unison, "so when do you want to come back" practically the first day.
