Mwaah! Some couples have Venice, some Rome, others Paris… we have Amsterdam.
Amsterdam was the first holiday myself and the Scary One went on.
And we managed to survive a row in a lift.
Me getting a whitey in a brown cafe and cramp after a 25-mile bicycle ride.
Which incidentally should have been only 15 miles.
If a certain someone hadn’t taken the wrong fork in the road. It also caused me to slip on the pathway.
To make matters worse when we did get to Cheesetown, or Edam as it’s known to the locals, it was their half-day and the town was shut.
We had the pleasure to return to Amsterdam last year where we stayed in the Dylan Hotel.
A bit more upmarket than our billet on our first trip, and took a romantic trip down the canal.
We’d recommend that, the art galleries, the restaurants and the quirky museums.
With all this in mind let me recommend The Dylan’s Tulip Valentine package.
And a word to the wise, George Clooney and Amal stay here when they are in Amsterdam… https://jimmurtytraveltraveltravel.com/george-and-amal-hotel/
You’ll spend two nights with B&B in a luxury double room (and unlike a lot of hotels you will want to spend time here).
You’ll have a chilled bottle of champagne and a bouquet of tulips in your room on arrival.
There will be a pre-dinner Valentine’s-themed cocktail in OCCO.
Followed by a set menu dinner at Michelin-starred restaurant Vinkeles.
And then also those tickets to the Tulip Museum… https://jimmurtytraveltraveltravel.com/pictures-of-amsterdam/
The Dylan is all about personal service.
And you’ll also get a handwritten letter from the concierge.
With suggestions on how to make the most of your romantic getaway.
From intimate hidden away bars, and cosy restaurants.
To the best places to see the world’s best flowers (I have ice cream tulips just waiting to be planted in the Spring).
And the best boutiques (thanks for that… my credit card will take a hit!)
The Tulip Valentine’s package starts from €1695 and is based on two people sharing a room. Valid throughout February. Visit http://www.dylanamsterdam.com
Just promise me that you’ll check which is Edam’s half-day.
