One of the highlights of our trip was getting to celebrate King’s Day in Amsterdam! Koningsdag is Holland’s national holiday where people wear orange, party on boats listening to music and riding up and down the canals, and people sell all of their used clothes and items in markets in local parks! It was really fun to get to experience their holiday and wear our orange 🙂 everyone was laughing and noting how cute Rosie looked in her little orange hate with pigtails haha! So funny.

We went to Vondelpark and got pancakes, walked around and looked at all of the little markets set up, took a nap at the apartment, and walked along the canals watching boats packed full of people in bright orange blasting top 100 hits floating by!

Thanks to all of the sweet people of Holland who let us celebrate with you! xo

  11. Hi Amber!
    I’m from Brazil and I just love your photos, your lifestyle, your travel diaries, and all the tips you post on this blog. Have you ever thought to come to Brazil one day? I live in Rio and I can imagine beautiful photos of yours in Rio’s landscapes haha.
    By the way, you mentioned sometime that you would be sharing more about your camera equipment in a post. I’m very anxious for it!

    Xo Isa

    1. Hi!! Thank you so much!! That is so sweet to hear 🙂 And yes, we definitely want to visit Brazil someday. We just aren’t sure when! And yes, we had plans to do an equipment post but it got pushed off, so I don’t know when that will be happening 🙁

  12. What a cute photo’s! You have such a happy family! I was so bummed you were in Holland, just when we were in Portugal for a holiday. What are the odds haha. We went to a lot of places in Portugal, but Sintra was Magical. You have to pinterest it and put it on your bucket list if you will come to Europe next time! Our one and a half year old babyboy loved it in Portugal.
    Greetings from the Netherlands ;-)!

    1. Thanks so much!! How sweet of you!! And no way?! Darn!! Sorry we missed you! I am sure you had an amazing time in Portugal though!! We would love to go someday 🙂 I will keep Sintra on our list!

  13. Yay Koningsdag for the Clarks! You look like real Dutchies here haha. Rosie is rocking those pigtails (‘vlechtjes’!), too bad I didn’t have those for my daughter’s first Koningsdag here in the Netherlands! So nice to see you had a good time in our country. Did you see our queen Maxima on tv by any chance? She is só stylish..! I think you might love her style.
