15 March 2018

33 things you want to do this weekend in amsterdam!

Nothing as unpredictable as the weather, that has become clear yet again. It was only two weeks ago that we got to go ice skating on the canals, this past weekend lots of us were hanging out on the terrace and now we can bring back the gloves yet again! It’s impossible to keep up with ;-). Luckily our weekend guide doesn’t get affected by it, because this weekend there’s so much to do in Amsterdam again! There’s a new market in Bos and Lommer to discover and the monthly Museum Market is back at the Museum Square. I’m craving dim sum all week and it’s likely that you can find me at Oriental City or Chin Chin Club this weekend. These and many more tips can be found in the Amsterdam Weekend Guide for March 16, 17 and 18.


PS: Next week there will be a new vlog and mega update on Travelkids.co!  This is your chance to take a sneak peek behind the scenes and you can also follow me on Instagram!
