Duh!!! I signed off my last post saying I'd be back on Sunday.....completely forgetting that I need to post my TAAFOMFT LO here to be able to link it to there!! It must be all the paint fumes I've been inhaling lately....or maybe not!!
Anyhow....the challenge this time was 'My Favourite Vacation' & while I have a few holiday destinations that I love & could be my personal favourite, usually involving a beach & as few buildings as possible, the one holiday that stands out as the most memorable was in fact our Honeymoon to Amsterdam, with not a beach in sight!!!
My Darling Hubby is so not a beach person, so the choice of a city break for our Honeymoon was a no-brainer! Neither of us had ever been to Amsterdam, so that's where we headed & it was an amazing week. Buoyed up by newly wedded bliss, we went everywhere & did everything on the tourist agenda.
Anne Franks house was poignant, the diamond factory dazzling, the flower markets intoxicating, the red light district fascinating & the shopping fantastic....De Bijenkorf became a favourite haunt! We ate at the most amazing restaurants & drank in the 'Brown Bars'.....we rode the trams as well as boats along the canals & needless to say we both came home with a pair of wooden clogs!! I just can't believe it was all 23 years ago!!!
So, with that done I will go back to restoring order to my house & I will indeed be back on Sunday!!!
