Amsterdam Weekend Guide for November 9, 10 and 118 November 2018
23 tips for this weekend in the amsterdam weekend guide
Mexico, you’ve been good to me! Exactly what I needed after seven months of not sleeping and still trying to maintain the everyday life. The past months I’ve been busy evaluating Your Little Black Book. What can be done to improve the website, make it more simple and more clear? Unfortunately Google has decided that from now on Google Maps on websites is a paid service. With the amount of page views on Your Little Black Book (almost a million!) that means that I’ll have to pay a completely salary in order to put a map in a blog. Something that followers who are used to free tips don’t find realistic. And so I have to do it in a completely different way. That’s something that I’m going to be working on in the next couple of months so stay tuned to find some changes along the way.
Something else that you can already notice a difference in, is that Your Little Black Book will run several different Instagram accounts:
- @YOURLBB: For my personal adventures. Just like on the blog, a mix of TRAVEL, AMSTERDAM & LIFESTYLE. From Amsterdam to foreign destinations and from solo travels to a family vacay.
- @TRAVELKIDS.CO: For parents with wanderlust, because having a baby or being pregnant doesn’t mean that you have to give up on your traveling and foodie minded lifestyle. On the contrary, even though that’s hard to imagine if you don’t have kids, as I couldn’t a year ago. I’ll also share my tips about my life as a mother here.
- @YOURLBB.AMSTERDAM: For everyone that mainly wants to follow the Amsterdam tips and is not an active liker or commenter, but who does save the tips (I hear you!). I will be sharing them here one by one, doesn’t matter if it’s likeable, Instagrammable or photogenic or not. I really crave a page where the feed is not always perfect, but the tips are. Because let’s be honest for a second, a hotspot isn’t always empty so you can’t always make the perfect interior picture and sometimes it’s so dark inside that it’s impossible to photograph the food in a way that it looks just as great as it tastes. And if you ask me, those are the things you want to know! Via this account you can click in te bio every day to the Amsterdam guide on Your Little Black Book where we post daily announcements of new hotspots, restaurants reviews and handy short lists.
I’m really looking forward to be working on this and keep on exploring Amsterdam with you all. Please know that I read all your sweet and kind comments, read all the mails and hear the feedback. Every day I’m grateful for the thousands of visitors that view Your Little Black Book for tips. And speaking of tips… there’s a brand new Amsterdam Weekend Guide waiting for you, packed with great things to do this weekend in Amsterdam. I’ll be in The Big Apple this weekend! Of course you can follow this adventure on @YOURLBB.
Enjoy the tips from the Amsterdam Weekend Guide for November 9, 10 and 11.

PS: It has been quiet for a while with the blogs on Travelkids.co (something to do with a book deadline), but the vlog is back! Are you watching the newest vlog? You can also follow our adventures with the little family behind the scenes via Instagram!
