Amsterdam 2018 - Day 1 & Day 2 #Travel

Hi beauties, hope you're all doing okay! Today I'm back with another #travel blogpost. This time I will be talking to you about that time I went to Amsterdam last February. Yes, I did vlog everything so if you would like to check them out you can do so by clicking here for Day 1 and here for Day 2.

On our first day we didn't do much since we arrived late afternoon. We simply went on a city tour across the city - that's why I decided to join the two days in one blogpost.

However, our second day was a bit more eventful!

The Heineken Experience

The Heineken Experience which is obviously located in Amsterdam, is a historic brewery and a visitor center for the internationally distributed Dutch pilsner, Heineken beer. The tour was a very interesting one. They took us through the history of Heineken and they also explained to us how the beer is done step by step. What I loved is the visuals which make it all so real. They also showed us a five minute video that explains the process of the brewing from beginning to end. I'm not a beer lover but I still enjoyed it so I highly suggest you go to the brewery if you're ever in Amsterdam. If you want to purchase the tickets for the Heineken Experience you can do so here.

Artis Zoo

Artis is a zoo in central Amsterdam. It is the oldest zoo in the Netherlands and one of the oldest zoos of mainland Europe. It also contains an aquarium and a planetarium. Artis also has an arboretum and a fairly large art collection. A part of the art collection is on display in the Aquarium building of the zoo. Artis contains 27 monumental buildings, most of which are used as enclosures for the animals, making Artis a unique cultural heritage of the 19th century. It wasn't my first time visiting a zoo but I still get so excited when I go to one. We saw so many animals, some of which I had no idea they even existed. Obviously, my favourites would have to be the giraffes, monkeys & the sea lions! Buy your tickets here!

A'Dam Lookout

A'Dam Lookout is an observation deck with a panoramic view of Amsterdam. You can also go on a swing that is 100  metres above the ground, back and forth over the edge of the tower with Amsterdam literally beaneath you! I was too scared to go on the swing but I still enjoyed the view and the walk we took to get there. If you would be interested in purchasing tickets, you can do so here.

Escape Club

We love a bit of a party and so on our Friday night in Amsterdam we went to Club Escape. We really enjoyed there and we literally danced all night (we got back to our hotel at 5am!). I was so tired when we left the club, that I could barely keep my eyes open haha!

Make sure you watch Day 1 and Day 2 of the Amsterdam vlog and I will see you all next Saturday for the last vlog of Amsterdam which will combine Day 3 and Day 4!
