On our last day in Amsterdam, we really did take the leisurely route
I don't think there is a better way to start the day than at a beautiful hotel in a new city, with a cup of coffee and Eggs Benedict. At home my husband and I are early risers and are up and out to the gym and our retrospective days, that when we are travelling we really try and change the pace to something much more leisurely
We strolled the canals, taking in the last views of the beautifully romantic city and wishing we didn't have to leave.
Basically spending the day getting to know Amsterdam a little more and stopping off for coffee and people watching whenever the whim took us.
Speaking of finding places for coffee, we came across Stach.
A lovely little store come coffee shop, selling healthy snacks and artisan food. A great place to find while travelling, for when you feel like something fresh, healthy and quick.
As it was our last day, I couldn't bear to see the tulips my husband has bought me go to waste! So we took them out with us to give them to the first admirer I saw. Such a lovely feeling to share something beautiful with a stranger.

One of my favourite parts of Amsterdam was the area around the Rijksmuseum (the museum of the Netherlands). The area is surrounded by every kind of museum that it would be hard to find one that wasn't of interest to you. Not only is the architecture of the building beautiful, but it has the loveliest lake in from of it, adorned with floating tulip bowls.
Even though the area is totally touristy and super busy, I still found it very beautiful and actually quite a cute place to hang out as it has a great vibe and lots of little food and coffee trucks if you are feeling a little peckish. And also some little independent stalls for shopping too
After a lovely morning at the Rijksmuseum, we then went to the Moko museum to see the laugh now (Banksy) exhibition. Compared with the Rijksmuseums it was a complete change of pace and something entirely different. I have to say it was honestly one of the best exhibitions iv seen in a long time, so thought provoking and interesting. A must if you are visiting Amsterdam
After the best first day ever in Amsterdam flower shopping, we were ready for another day exploring the city of tulips and canals.
While we were putting together our itinerary for places to eat in Amsterdam, we came across Pluk. It’s one of those places that you cant miss while researching places to eat in Amsterdam, its totally insta famous
And for good reason. Pluk is this little cafe come shop in the 9 streets and serves fresh breakfast and lunches with a side of cuteness. Everything is not only gorgeous, but you can eat healthily here and not realise because it all tastes so good.
And for those (namely, me) who fancy something a little bit naughtier they have the most delicious freshly baked cakes!
Cappuccinos come with free love hearts and a baby stoopwafel! Thats me sold...

Pluk is definitely worth a lunch or cake stop. Id be sure to stick it on your itinerary
