Have you dreamed of staying on a houseboat in Amsterdam?
I always wanted to wake up on the canals, so when we visited the Dutch capital I made sure we did.
And even though I broke every rule of building up expectations and was beyond excited about the experience – our Amsterdam house boat stay was exactly how I imagined.
It was a beautiful way to spend a long weekend in Amsterdam.
This is our guide to finding and booking your Amsterdam houseboat stay.
