A Weekend in Amsterdam - Day 3

Hi everyone!

We spent our last day slightly outside Amsterdam in a place called Zaanse Schans (try saying that 5 times fast!) It was basically a windmill farm which was really random but really fun and the whole place smelt like the best brownies ever but we never actually found any brownies so we don't really know what that was...

We were so lucky and once again had blue skies but it was so much colder and we weren't really prepared so we were a bit chilly walking around!

I kid you not the picture above is a clog made or Swarovski crystals which was insanely cool.

As well as being a windmill farm Zaanse Schans is also an old town with lots of old buildings like bakeries etc. 

We ended up spending the majority of the day there because it was so pretty and fun and I would definitely recommend going there if you are planning on going to Amsterdam. It is only about half an hour from the city centre but it seems so separate from everything which is actually really nice!

Wherever you walked there were clogs everywhere!

We had to rush back to the city centre so that we would have time to collect our suitcases before our flight. 

Despite being in a rush we still made time to go to a Snoopy exhibition which we saw advertised. The room was filled with mini Snoopies with different outfits designed by high fashion designers inluding Zac Posen and Diane von Furstenburg.

It was such an adorable exhibition and I really enjoyed it but unfortunately we didn't get much time there because we had to make a speedy exit to the airport.

I had such an amazing weekend with my family and would suggest Amsterdam to anyone for a city break as I love it so much and it's definitely one of my favourite cities in Europe!

I hope you liked my series of Amsterdam posts!
