Will is currently headed to a conference in Sweden for the weekend (read: Liam and I will be in our pj’s binging on “Suits” all weekend. We may, or may not, leave the flat–I haven’t decided).
So, I thought I’d reminisce about our babymoon back in March.
Last Christmas Will surprised me with tickets to Amsterdam for our babymoon! He booked the flights and AirBnB room for March so it gave me plenty of time to figure out what I wanted to see and do. By the time March rolled around I was sooooooooooo ready to get my third-trimester-belly over there!
Our first morning there had a bit of a rough start. As soon as we had started walking my back was hurting. I think I lasted 10 minutes before I had to sit down somewhere. On top of that it was cold and windy and I had somehow thought that leaving Scotland, aka “the land of cold and windy”, meant I was flying to the tropics…. because that was the type of logical thinking I was having at nearly eight months of being pregnant?? So, about 12 minutes into our first day I nearly broke down that I was cold and hurting and I was ruining our holiday. BUT enter in Will, the one with a properly functioning brain, and he made it all better by finding us a cafe so we could get warm and sit and press reset. That man of mine sure does know how to be wonderful to me!
After our little reset we were able to tackle Amsterdam that weekend! We saw Anne Frank’s safe house (one of my favourite museums to this day), went to an outdoor market, ate freshly made stroopwafels, checked out more of the amazing museums, walked through the red light district, and walked hand-in-hand along the rivers! We even got to meet up with friends who had just moved from Edinburgh to the Netherlands.
Bump and blarf buddies!! (Blarf = blanket scarf).
It was such a great trip for both of us. My belly didn’t get too much in the way of seeing the city. As long I was fed and had ample opportunities to sit and rest I was willing and able to walk all day. And truthfully, Amsterdam is a very walk-able city and easy to get around. We’d love to go back someday… maybe in the spring/summertime? ;)
