Day three in Amsterdam and I am really enjoying my time here! Amsterdam is a fabulous city! There are many interesting tourist attractions for people to enjoy. Today Bridget and I visited Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum. It was absolutely astonishing how real the wax figures looked! I saw many famous people there including Elvis Presley, Mona Lisa and Michael Jackson. I enjoyed visiting the Museum, and I had a great time. After the museum, we went cheese tasting. Yes, cheese tasting! It was a tasty experience and we both enjoyed ourselves. Around lunchtime, Bridget and I went to a lovely little bakery. I had a melted-chocolate covered waffle with crème and strawberries. It was mouth-watering! The next day, we went on a canal tour around the city. We were given earphones to listen to a recorded voice-over so that we could listen to it in several languages. I thought this was a great idea and I learned so much about the city’s intriguing history. The highlight of the trip for me was visiting the famed Anne Frank house. This was a life changing experience. What truly never fails to amaze me about the story of Anne Frank, is that what was to her only a diary, (my friend Kitty, as she called it), would change the world forever. We did many other things but these are the ones I most enjoyed.
I miss you dearly, Emma, and cannot wait to see you soon.
All my love,
