THESE ARE THE BEST TIPS FOR FUN ACTIVITIES IN AMSTERDAM THIS WEEKEND
This week I might be cheating a little bit… I’m writing the Amsterdam Guide from New York City! This is the first time we are here with Manuel and it’s making me look at the city in a different way. Same same, but different! The only thing that is a bit sad, is that I’m missing de best food festivals of the year this weekend in Amsterdam. As you may have noticed, I gave my chef’s table tickets for Taste of Amsterdam away on Instagram this week to a lucky winner. This weekend is packed with fun things to do, and for many of you it’s actually an extra long one, due to the national holiday. So check out the new Amsterdam Weekend Guide for May 30 + 31 mei & June 1 + 2. I have listed the 10 best tips for you. Enjoy!
