Where I went

  • Go To

I went to beautiful Amsterdam in Holland with my mum, dad, sister and brother for three days.

Where we stayed

We stayed in a small hotel beside a park called the Owl Hotel. We had a small room with a bunk bed and two singles pushed together. My brother kept falling through the gap! The TV had a Dutch Disney channel that was in English for a certain amount of time during the day.

What we did

We rented bikes and rode around the Vondel Park. My Dad had a box on his bike that my brother sat in. I had a go. It was really scary. I thought I would fall out. My Dad thought he looked Dutch in his Dutch hat. I thought he just looked silly.

We went on pedalos and got lost but eventually found our way back. We also rode on a canal boat to Anne Frank's annexe, the reason for our trip. I have always wanted to visit her house.

What we ate

My sister ate a lot of Dutch pancakes and my Dad enjoyed the Dutch cheeses but I didn't like either so I had McDonalds.

What I liked the most

I loved seeing Anne Frank's house the best because I have read her diary and she has always been an idol of mine.

Would I go back?

Yes, it was fabulous. There were so many things we didn't do.
