AMSTERDAM TRAVEL INSPIRATION
Amsterdam has long been one of my favourite cities, growing up nearby during my teenage years meant frequent visits to the bustling shopping streets, cruises along the canals and visiting museums. This city is shedding it’s old reputation, with constant renovation and a huge design talent, it’s one of the most stylish and creative cities in the world – if you know where to look. The streets running along side the canals are picturesque – and exactly as you imagine. There are endless museums, trendy bars and cafes, some very stylish shopping to be done, and about a billion bicycles. Well, over 600,000 according to the latest estimate!. Last summer, B.LOVED contributor Claire Graham popped over to the city on a girls weekend with her sister, so this week I get to share her travel inspiration!
