We flew from Dublin to Amsterdam, Netherlands for the second half of the week.

We met up with my roommate's aunt and uncle who took us to a film museum to have a coffee and apple cake.

We didn't eat here, but we were certainly intrigued.

We woke up early our second morning to get to Anne Frank house bright and early. We arrived 10 minutes before open and still waited nearly 2 hours in line. Well worth it though, the reimagined factory, and bare rooms of the annex were both chilling and intriguing. 

Later that day we took a tour of the Heineken Brewery. The 'Heineken Experience' was a lot more hands on than the Guinness factory, we got to grind grain, stir mash, and they had a 4-D video experience where they 'brewed us' into beer.

We also got our two drinks with admission.

Trying traditional Dutch food - croquette. It is so delicious!


We went to a bar called Ice Bar on our last night, where you get to hang out in a big freezer room with an ice bar and ice sculptures. They serve your drinks in a glass made of ice as well.

These parkas and mitts were provided, not quite my style.

Don't forget to link up. I can't wait to see what in the world you've been up to!
