At the end of June I was lucky enough to pop over to Amsterdam for three nights, leaving hubby and DC home alone. I met up with four of my old school friends over there (one lives there, the rest of us are dotted aross the South of England) and we shared a lovely little apartment (complete with mouse, it turned out) in the Jordaan district.
As you can see, we didn't enjoy particularly good weather, but then sun/heat + cities isn't my favourite combo so I didn't really mind the drizzle and grey skies.
Friday lunchtime (good timing, eh?!) we were signed up for a cheese-tasting session at the Reypenaer Shop and Tasting Room
We got to taste six different Dutch (of course) cheeses with wine and port; yum (although I discovered that I don't like port.) We were quite cheesed-out (cheesed off?!) by the end, but still managed to buy a couple of pieces to take home.
And then, what else to do when in Holland but visit the windmills?!
All too soon it was time to jump on another little plane and head west once more.
