Friday afternoon The Boyfriend and I made our way to the airport to catch our flight to Amsterdam, it was smooth sailing with plenty of napping on the three and a half hour journey. Unfortunately KLM changed the time of the flights and what used to be a 17:00 arrival is now a 20:30 arrival, so we jumped on the train from Schiphol and quickly caught the tram to our hotel (the excellent NH Museum Quarter, the same place we stayed last time), dropped our luggage off and ran out hoping to find a restaurant that didn't stop serving at 22:00.

Thursday afternoon The Boyfriend and I finally ventured further than the stop-over lounge at Schiphol and started off our long weekend in Amsterdam. We stayed at the Tulip Inn[1], near Leidseplein, however going "Aww, that's so cute" at the cute people we totally failed to notice our stop and ended up in the gritty outer reaches of the city. Oops. However, being such a small city with very frequent trams, the mistake was quickly rectified and we were back in the centre dragging our suitcases behind us to check in, before heading out to wander around the city, stopping for margaritas and Mexican food, followed by more wandering and beer (oh, the beer!).

Cocktails, shopping and um, more cocks and tales )

It was great to get away, and I certainly hope to revisit some time again soon, but it sure is nice to be home.
