Having Breakfast in Mercure Amsterdam City

August 18th, 2015 § 0 comments § permalink

Thetraveljunkie.org – Today I am going to describe our perfect day through our fave pairs of glasses. I would start the day off by having breakfast in one of the lovely Mercure Amsterdam City. I love Amsterdam. I would make our way to Javanese-Suriname Restaurant for lunch, the food is delicious and not very expensive. After lunch, I would head over to Van Gogh Museum with iamsterdam. Our fave thing to do is to walk from Van Gogh Museum to  Rijkmuseum, where I love to kill my free time by people watching around. Then it’s back to Mercure Amsterdam City for an evening drink!

The Travel Junkie in Mercure Amsterdam City

August 16th, 2015 § 0 comments § permalink

Thetraveljunkie.org – I visited Amsterdam recently for a reader gathering and my choice of hotel was the one and only Mercure Hotel Amsterdam City, set in a beautiful location by the river and provides easy access to the ArenA, Ziggo Dome, Zuid-As business district and the center of Amsterdam. The hotel is just 5 minutes away from the RAI Convention Center. Which makes this central hotel ideal not only for business trips but also leisure away! You can also reach the city center by public transport in just 10 minutes – and yes, it is the travel junkie hotel. Here is how our stay went.

The Sprinter To Amsterdam

August 13th, 2015 § 0 comments § permalink

Thetraveljunkie.org – In Holland, we’ve been planning a getaway like this for a long time, so we gathered every thing we needed to make it happen: friends, road and our perfect travel companions. Um not too much needed to spend great days that had it all, from some days lost in nature at Almere – a few km away from Amsterdam – to some days rediscovering the capital’s charm while staying at one of its most special hotels, Mercure Hotels. Very soon we’ll show you more pictures of Amsterdam: its steep streets, its flavors and its sprinter. But, for now, we leave you with this photos between Almere Centrum to Amsterdam Central.

August 11th, 2015 § 0 comments § permalink

Thetraveljunkie.org – The other day in Almere, I took part in an amazing charity event, Vakjoe! cancer sucks. That happened on the Lumierepad Beach, Filmwijk. Vakjoe! (fuck you!) is a platform that fighters against cancer commemorates a heart protrudes below the belt and victims of the disease. The movement was founded by Almere resident, Ryan Franklin Delano Kraak, who died in November 2012 of pancreatic cancer. His son Patrick has taken up the torch. The highlight of the annual meeting is to raise the middle finger against cancer.

Between Amsterdam Central Station and Almere Centrum, Holland

August 10th, 2015 § 1 comment § permalink

Thetraveljunkie.org – We did a trip to Almere and took advantage of whatever little spare time we had to get to know New Land, modern architecture meets futuristic urban planning, all while embracing the water and nature that surrounds Holland’s new land – just 30 minutes from Amsterdam. Since then, Almere became one of our favourite ‘European New Towns‘, a suspicion which was reinforced by our latest stay in Almere: we cannot wait to go back.
