New Year Travel
Amsterdam is the ideal destination for a trip away with family or friends and if you visit in spring you can see it bloom once more. Enjoy the milder weather on a canal cruise and explore the city via its famous waterways. Visit the many museums in the city where you can find world famous art, the historical hiding place of Anne Frank and even a cheese museum. For the kids Ripley’s Believe it or Not Museum and Madame Tussauds provide plenty of fun and why not pop by the floating flower market to see the famous Dutch blossoms before returning home?
