The girl who came from Amsterdam (part I of a little Amsterdam's guide)

So I'm back, it's been short but very intense... and of course, with thousand of pictures I've made for all of you! I've discovered some great places for eating, having a coffee (and NOT the ussual coffee-shop), buy cute clothes or original things... so let's start!! And be prepared for a huge bunch of pictures... you're gonna meet Amsterdam through my eyes!

A lovely bike I found
So early in the morning we took our flight to Amsterdam, and at 9 o'clock, we were at the city. 

This picture was taken by the tram.

So, Amsterdam has got lovely canals...

And lots of streets without asphalt, something that I really love; just because asphalt has got a peculiar smell that gives a strange point to the air of the cities... 
Big streets and small alleys...

And art in every part of the city, including in places that you cannot imagine... 

The car of some masons.
This looks like the one above... but it's for the gas of the houses!
Click on the picture for reading what it says!

So, some places I visited and I think you would like it are... 

* The Frozen Fountain (Prinsengracht 645/1016)

A place where you can find original furniture for your home, carpets, chair, tablewares, art toys made of paper...
Click on the image for a bigger one... this last one is made with the reflections of a crystal lamp!

* The Darling (Runstraat, 4, 1016 GK)

A lovely shop with cute brands, cupcakes, complements and a little atelier on the top of the shop, where Nadine van der Zee, the designer, creates her clothes! I only have pictures from outside, sorry!


* Parisienne (Berenstraat, 4, 1016  GH)

A lovely and small shop with gorgeous jewels and a rococo style!


* Goodies (Huidenstraat 9, 1016 ER)

A place where you can eat... lovely one! The snadwich were gorgeous!!

Yummy!!
Cova, Alba and Vane!
Vane and her soup, more yummy!!
I liked this guy's sweater!

* Pomadour ( Huidenstraat 12 and Kerkstraat 148)

One of the most gorgeous patisserie I've ever been at!! I ate a lovely chocolate mousse... delicious! Judge by yourself!!
Sooooo great!

* Moeders Restaurant (Rozengracht 251)

I think this was one of the most greatest things I saw that day. A restaurant where nothing matches with anything... and the food was delicious! Everything was like homemade meal, and the walls where full of mother's pictures! I left one picture of my mum, so if you go there, be sure to take one picture of yours too, so you can leave it there!

The small photo is the one of my mum!

* Ready to Fish (Prinsengracht 581-583)

A shop with a gorgeous concept: they sells clothes, make exhibitions, sells furniture (but promote the DIY conpcet too) and serve coffee!! And I must sy that the girls of the shop were adorable!



So, this was our first day... we went to the Heineken shop, the red light district (where they're trying to mix fashion with prostitution) and some other places, but this is what I liked most!



Tomorrow I'll post the second part of this... and REMEMBER!! it would be the last day for entering into my fisrt giveaway!! So come on, do it!!

Thanks for reading, I know it was long but I hope these would be useful!

  6. ¡Menudo currazo te has pegado, amiga! Es interesante ver que ciertos detalles como el maquear el mobiliario urbano también han llegado a otras ciudades como Barcelona: http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/photo.php?pid=2785725&id=706214737

    Mirando tus fotos sólo puedo exclamar: ¡qué ciudad más bonita!

  7. ya me gustaria a mi que Sevilla fuera la mitad de bonita, apacible y fresquita de lo que es Amsterdam xD
    las fotos son preciosas y los sitios a los que fuiste (a parte de que te dio tiempo de ir a un monton de sitios en un solo dia) son geniales. Me ha encantado la bici de la primera foto y bueno, de Heineken que voy a decir, es mi cerveza preferida a parte de la birra japonesa xD (una española que no le gusta cruzcampo, si, soy mas rara que un piojo verde xD)
