Despite being a committed Brexiter I have always been hopelessly in love with Europe so, a couple of weeks ago I took a 45 minute torture course – well, Easyjet from Luton – to a wonderfully attractive city
where I rented a suitable local method of transport for Mme and the pair we went with
and booked into an AirB+B par excellance.
After checking out the neighbours…..
one of whom lived in a glass bottle art gallery
we discovered, no more than 250 yards away (had to put that in just to annoy Smiles) an excellent new hotel, The Dylan ( what a great idea to have a daily fresh individual flower pathway to the front door)
with a brilliant, well stocked, comfortable and excellent bar called Vinkeles – you can guess the comments!!!
Talking of which, I took two pics of the front path and chose the one above and was about to delete this one until I noticed the trainers in the window (top left) and had to leave it for a smile!! 5 star ???
Whatever, should you find yourself there, also visit the famous Rijksmuseum, but not for the exhibits alone
book (it gets incredibly busy) a dinner table for the real treat of the taster menu in the Rijks Restaurant. It is better than very very good – it is amazing – though seriously expensive!
Great place, lovely city, wonderful break – and my heart is forever at Vinkeles!
Yours, diablog, in clogs
