Amsterdam Weekend Guide for October 24, 25 & 26!

Fall in Amsterdam is one of my fav seasons. Going to the movies with my love, for coffee with friends and drinking red wine with bitterballs in a brown café on Sunday afternoon. Sometimes I just don’t want to travel on the weekends to make sure I don’t miss a thing.

At the moment I’m in Athens on a travel blog event. Such a cool city! Lots of street art and cool hipster bars. You can follow my daily adventures on Instagram and Twitter. Search for Your Little Black Book via @yourlbb!

– Back to Black is a new coffee bar in the heart of Amsterdam. At this cool concept everything is for sale. More about Back to Black here.
