Eurotrip Day 10 – Amsterdam, Netherlands: Picnic at Vondelpark, Architecture Admiration and More

Posted on December 29, 2015 by Lindsay

We already knew that we wanted to visit Vondelpark again before leaving Amsterdam and day 10 of our trip provided us the perfect weather for just that. This post contains more photos than text.

Would you look at that, it’s coffee break time!

Again, we slept in late, had coffee and hit up the grocery store for some picnic grub. On our way to the park we admired some architecture and scenery. We stopped about a dozen times to snap pictures.

At last we made it to the park and spent a few minutes deciding on the perfect spot to lay down our stuff.

The picnic menu consisted of fruit, bread, meats and cheese. It was all quite tasty & cheap too!

When we chose our spot in the park we didn’t realize that it would soon become a hot spot for dog activity. I was loving life watching all the cute pooches playing and running around.

Believe it or not, we spent the rest of the day walking around and taking photos. I think we had a few coffee breaks and grocery store visits in there too but to spare you the less boring cups of joe just enjoy these views of the city.

One of the coolest things about our airbnb was that it was located right next to the Zoo so every day when we came back to the place we just looked for the dinosaur statues.

The sun was setting when we got home so we shared a pre-dinner coffee in our favorite spot.

For dinner we had a veggie stir fry with a side of quinoa. We loved cooking in our little kitchen so we thought why not?
