It was our first trip to Amsterdam and we stayed for the first time in our lifes on the houseboat! It's completely different experience to wake up surrounded by water, swans and ducks. You immediately get this peacefull feeling as if you are somewhere in a village or summer house, but at the same time in 7 min walking distance you have restaurants, shops, bio market and red district area. The better location is hard to find!
I really enjoyed the inside decoration of the boat, it brings you back in time, all these wooden tables and amazing lamps. One of my favorite things on board was a bath tube, I felt totally happy to end the busy day resting there, especially when it was raining outside. I want to say thanks for such a special experience to Nina and Eric. They made out stay really beautiful. We got a map on the arrival with all detailed information about "special" places in the city, so in the end we didn't feel ourselvse like tourists, but more like locals, riding black bikes, locking them with 3 kg chain, sitting on the roofs and sailing on free ferries to the opposite side of the city.
It was a dream that I'll remember the whole my life and definetely will come back to Love boat.
PS the trip was a gift from my boyfriend :)
