Gutted. Realizing that Amsterdam was quite some time ago and that I’ve got such a small amount of time left before I go back to reality is a bit of a shock to the system, quite frankly. Having said that, it’s really impossible to be entirely mopey given what an incredible couple of months it’s been. As mentioned in my last Amsterdam travel diary, this leg of the trip in Amsterdam was truly one of my most special experiences, especially this beautiful day spent touring the city by bike.

After majorly overdosing on all the food at the market, we strolled our full selves through all the canals and streets of Amsterdam, hopping off to take in Negen Straatjes more (my favourite neighbourhood!), popping into the area’s amazing shops and grabbing a beer at one of the pubs. We then cruised to Vondelpark, undoubtedly one of my favourite areas of the city. You could easily spend a few hours just meandering the park by bike, hopping off for a picnic as we did or taking a nap under one of the beautiful trees. Finally, we headed to Brouwerij ‘t IJ‘s brewery and pub under its iconic windmill, having some of the best beer we’ve had on our entire trip on the communal picnic tables outside. It was honestly such a perfect Amsterdam day.
Reliving such a beautiful day is a bit bittersweet at this point of the trip – definitely already prematurely mourning the end of this adventure, which is an incredibly stupid thing to do really and which I’m going to try to stop doing…now. I still have London and Paris to look forward to (can’t keep me away from Paris – booked a return back the second I landed in Ireland!), and really, as cheesy as it sounds I need to just live every moment until I fly back on the 10th in the now. As my dad said on Skype yesterday, this is honestly one of the few periods of my life when I can just take off for months at a time and see so much – I need to soak in everything I can and really embrace every moment.
So with that said, I’m off to experience something I’m likely only going to do once in my lifetime – kiss the famous Blarney Stone! As always, follow the adventure along on Instagram!

    I'm so glad you enjoyed our capital city: the Negen Straatjes is indeed one of the most fun neighbourhoods. I think you did a fab tour for the short time and Poffertjes are such a delicious classic
