I recently whisked my Mam away to Amsterdam for a weekend adventure to not only celebrate Mothers Day, but her 63rd Birthday which fell at the same time too.
We went on a DFDS Mini Cruise for £79 (£99 including transfers) and spent a few hours just wandering round central Amsterdam…. There’s not many words to go with this post… and not many photos either as we just enjoyed having some quality Mother Daughter time… and a few naughty giggles at the shop windows!
