With less than a week to go everyone’s getting ready for Queen’s day. I saw huge supplies of beer in Albert Heijn yesterday, I suspect that because Queen’s Day falls on a Friday some people are planning to make a loooooonnnnnggggg weekend of it.
My plans? I’ve avoided it for the last two years but this year I’ll be here in Amsterdam. I’m planning to wander around the vrijemarkt (fleamarket) in the Jordaan and might make my way down to Vondelpark. The park is designated for children to set up stalls, which I think is a great idea from the city.
There’s a detailed guide to events of the day on the I amsterdam site.
