Start of Something New?

At the end of last weeks post I said to be prepared for something a little different!

If you have been here for a while, you may know that when I go travelling or visit somewhere I don't usually visit that often, I will do a 'Travel Diary' post. This helps to give you an idea of what the place is like. However, something that maybe you won't know is that I always make a video of that particular place as well. What I'm trying to say is that I am uploading my first 'vlog' to YouTube as the same time as this post goes live!

I'd love it if you went on over and gave the video a watch and why not leave a comment as well to let me know if you want to have a bit of both (Travel Diary Post and Vlog) and liked the video. Not only do you get an idea of my personality, but you also get another, more creative side to me.


I hope you enjoy this new little addition to Vintag3r0se and let me know in the comment section of this post what you think.

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed

What to do in Amsterdam?

I was thinking of a post to do this week and then came up with this. I would have loved to have had a simple list of things that I needed to do whilst I was there. So I thought, why not just make one?

1. Anne Frank House
If you are interested in learning more about what happened in Amsterdam during WW2 then it is a must to go and see. In fact, even if you aren't, still go and have a look as there is so much to learn not only what happened, but also gives you perspective and helps you to learn about yourself as a person and not to take things for granted... especially freedom!


2. I Amsterdam Sign
There are 2 signs that you can visit. The first is as you arrive at Schipol Aiport outside the main doors. The second is near the Van Gogh museum. Even though it can get quite busy, we managed to get a couple of good pictures as well as the word 'DAM' with each of us in for a photo. It is a very tourist thing to do, but can make for some great photos!


3. Canal Cruise
This is the best way to see Amsterdam and the canals from a different perspective and the quickest. You can either get a hop on and hop off pass for 24 hours that allows you to see both the canal and the area when you stop off. The other option is to get a 1 hour cruise and see the main areas along the canal whilst being told more about the history of the city.


I hope this have given you a very brief overview of the things to do in Amsterdam if you are only there for a couple of days and want to do the main places. Be prepared next week for a little surprise on the blog and something a little different to normal!

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed
