Half the fun of the trip is in the planning and I’ve already started to put together a travel journal… I plan on using the same method as previous trips to document our trip “as we go”. I’ll be sure to share the finished project with you all.
Why am I telling you this??? Well other than to prepare you for a barrage of travel photos and stories, I need some advice, and this little old blog is a great place to find it.
1- The Weather- highs are forecast in the 50-60 degree range. This seems warm, but I’m debating about bringing the “big” coat- anyone know if 50 degrees in the Netherlands is pleasant or FREEZING??? (in Paris it was freezing, my gut’s telling me it will be the same).
2- Which Museum Pass? I’m confused, there’s the Holland Pass, the Amsterdam Card and the Netherlands Museum pass… I’m leaning towards the Holland pass- any opinions will be welcomed (we already have tickets to the Anne Frank house).
3- We plan on visiting Keukenhof, the Hague & Delft for sure. We are staying in Amsterdam if we want another day out of the city, what do you recommend?
4- Shopping- of course shopping… any tips for places to shop for great home decor items, fabric, trims, ribbons or unique gifts? (all that can be carried home in a suitcase)
5- Any other “must sees”??? Or other advice? Obviously we’re not interested in the “coffee” houses or the red light district…
