One of the things about Amsterdam that amazes everyone is the sheer numbers of bikes on the streets. It's a bit of a cliche but its not unusual to see public squares completely filled with parked bikes. By the main Centraal Station, there is even a multi-storey bike park!

Helps a bit there being rather few hills in that part of Europe.

I thought I should give the hotel we stayed in a mention as we both thought it was excellent.
We had a room on the third floor with a great view.
It was immaculately clean, comfy beds and friendly staff.

Some friends of ours are staying in one of the relatively new CADW apartments by Harlech castle.
They have sent me this photo of the view from it. Most impressive!

We are back from a few days staying at in a newly renovated apartment in one of those lovely terraced houses in Beaumaris. Gorgeous views from in it and well decorated inside.
We booked it with Menai Holidays.

Ardwy Orme... I thought it was a private residence, am I wrong?

I know it's not far away, but when we fancy treating ourselves we often check in to the Deganwy Quay hotel and spa for a couple of nights... as we did this weekend.  the views are as good as anywhere in the world in my opinion.
