A sunny morning after so much rainy days…it’s cold but that don’t bother me. I am going to Amsterdam. It’s too long ago! I have a few ideas for blog posts about Amsterdam so I take the train to my favorite Dutch city.

Autumn in Amsterdam…. the color change along the canals, the blue sky, just a perfect day to discover new things. Do you walk with me?

I start with a visit to the Marilyn Monroe exhibition in the “Nieuwe Kerk”. She is one of the women which is a big inspiration for me. It was a pity that I couldn’t take photos, because that was prohibited. There was so much to see. The famous white dress, a Pucci blouse which she wore often, make up, letters, diaries… very interesting to see her personal things.

The weather was wonderful. Blue sky, sunny….it was time for a stroll in the direction of the Haarlemmerstraat. This is one of my favorite neighborhoods of Amsterdam. In this street, you’ll find a variety of vintage shops, restaurants, coffee cafe’s, grocery shops and fashion boutiques. This time I tried a delicious pastry of the French patisserie “Petit Gateaux”. I chose a fig pastry and I can’t wait to go back and try the other flavors!

Let’s talk about my feet now 🙂 I walked so much this Friday, but it was all worth it. I continued my route to the famous “9 streets” for window shopping. I enjoyed a green tea at Starbucks near the flower market at the Singel. Then I continued my way to the Kalverstraat for shopping. I bought wonderful wedge sneakers! I strolled around shops, to get inspired by the new Fall fashion and to make my wish list longer 🙂

And when my feet were really protesting, I decided to drink tea at a new hotspot (for me :)) at the Dam square, called “Royal 98”. I chose a seat overlooking the busy street and the Dam square. Royal 98 is a cosy place with delicious pastries, but you can also enjoy a good dinner or antipasti and good wine. It’s now my new favorite hotspot in town!

After this lovely break, watching people and drinking tea, I walked to the Central Station to take the train home. It was a lovely day and can’t wait to go back!
