Soaking it all in – touring the Amsterdam Canals.

Happy Monday, everyone! Thanks so much for bearing with me the past two+ weeks while I was MIA traveling! I promise to make up for it this week 🙂

Our first few days in Europe were amazing, taking in the beautiful sites of Amsterdam. Unfortunately for me, I found out quite quickly that jet lag is a very real thing. I’ve traveled internationally before, so I thought I would be fine… overseas to South East Asia with my family a few years back. Well, by a few years back I really mean over ten years ago and alas, I’m not as young and agile as I used to be 😉 I also made the mistake of indulging in one too many bottles of wine with Ceci on our transatlantic flight. I didn’t sleep a wink on our flight and as soon as we landed – I was a complete wreck! Jet lag hit me like a ton of bricks… fatigue, nausea, body aches – obnoxiously grumpy and irritable. Yeah, fun times. Luckily, it didn’t last too long and I was still able to enjoy the city. We made the most of the few days we had there by enjoying multiple tours and visiting as many museums as we could. They didn’t allow any photos inside but the Van Gogh Museum was amazing 😀 I hope you enjoy this photo recap!

We visited the Museum of Bags & Purses – although we had a lovely Afternoon Tea there, unfortunately, we witnessed some pretty appalling customer service (or lack thereof) towards other patrons and then had the pleasure of enduring some of it ourselves while we were leaving. It’s one thing if someone’s having a bad day, but every single employee was disgustingly rude to other patrons and then later to us… So much so that I would never recommend anyone visit. Sure, they had a beautiful collection of handbags & history but nothing that impressive.

We also did the Heineken Experience which was a total BLAST! You not only get to tour the factory, see how it’s made and taste it but the place was like an amusement park for adults! So many fun interactive treats – I’d highly recommend a visit!

    I’ve never been but it seems like fun! Sucks you had bad service, that will definitely ruin any place no matter how amazing the décor. I’m not a big beer drinking but the Heineken place sounds awesome
