Written on Monday 24th October
I guess this is technically day 1 as yesterday was mainly just travelling to get here but let's just name this day 2 as day 1 already gota blog post of its own.
Now when I say there is loads to do in Amsterdam I am not kidding. There must be the most museums in the world here as well as lots of other sights and attractions and things to do.
One of the things we'd decided to definitely do was the NEMOScience museum. To give an idea of what it's like, think of our own science museum'slaunch pad section (now called Wonderlab) - you know the interactive hands on part of the museum that kids love - well NEMO was ALL like that. A massive hands-on-having-fun-kind-of-museum spread over a whopping 5 floors.
We grabbed some hotdogs when the kids got hungry but then found much more variety in the restaurant on the top floor. This restaurant is also open to the public so have made a mental note to try it out another day if we find ourselves in that area at lunchtime.

For ease, dinner was once again at the fashion hotel restaurant. What creatures of habit we are as I opted for the risotto again, Miss T for fish and J for a burger.
The dutch apple pie is exceptionally nice here (warm with lots of currants and nuts in) so 3 of us ordered that for dessert this evening.
Again service was slow so it was past everyone's bedtimes by the time we'd finished eating.
So far really enjoying Amsterdam and looking forward to what adventures the day will hold for us tomorrow.
P.S. it is cold here at this time of year so wrap up warm!
