Amsterdam: Queen's Day

Koninginnedag, also known as Queen's day, is basically the day the dutch celebrate their queen's birthday. It's a big deal, and it is when the dutch let their hair down and loose. The sober colors are ditched for orange...and it's orange madness everywhere!

I was even tempted to wear orange as well, but opted for my mickey mouse top...have I ever told you guys I love mickey? ah, that will be another post.

There were parties on every street with DJs playing house music (I guess), it was so much fun. But I fear I may never see the color orange the way I used to anymore.

And that sums up my visit. All things considered, I had a blast in Amsterdam, and would very much love to go back.
