thankyou amsterdam (again)

I'm back home after another successful trip to my favourite city. This time we stayed on Westerdok which was perfect in every way. Thanks to all of you who made our trip so great. The NS staff, KLM staff and security at Schipol. The bar tenders and waiters were all fabulous. However, no thanks to some sadistic cyclists who terrified my 75 year old mother on more than one occasion with their pavement riding and general lack of regard for someone too old to jump out of their way. Oh and thanks to Hema for their tummy pink cakes.

So did you make it over to Flevopark?

Nice to hear you enjoyed it and sorry on behalf of the rude cyclists...

I did not make it to Flevopark in the end. We went to old favourite Vondel instead where we paddled I the shallow pool.

Yes! Tompoes! How delicious! (I meant to type yummy in my original post, but it came out 'tummy'! Apt considering I ate lots of them and now my clothes feel tighter!).

I am already thinking of our next visit.......

The tummiest / yummiest tompoezen of the country are worth a detour / daytrip: Hotel New York grand cafe in Rotterdam make their own! Those are just to die for. And it's a great place, an old industrial building with tall ceiling and lots of history. And it's very near Fotomuseum so you can 'make up' by doing a culturally responsible visit after the tummy tompoes :-)

So come back soon.
