Sounds amazing! We did a lot of wandering and drinking. There is a really nice area for shopping & cafes/bars which I think is called 9 streets. The Hoxton is a nice place to while away an afternoon/evening. If you want to get out of town Monnickandem is a lovely spot again with nice cafes and restaurants, about half an hour on bus or quicker on Uber (we used uber a lot).

Hadn't even considered Uber thank you. We normally just wander with a very slight plan if any!

Go to the cigar museum. It is tiny and the guides are hilarious.

Sorry, it's the pipe museum. The 9 street are gorgeous.

Have a trip to Haarlem, 15 minutes on the train. Really nice place, shops,cafes, bars and nicely decorated for Xmas. The Vondelpark is nice for a stroll round and near to the canal boat trips.

All Lovely ideas thank you. I have bought a book. That's as far as I've got and will probably only have time to look at it on plane over!

Drinks (or supper if you're feeing flush) at the W hotel in Spuistraat. Amazing rooftop bar and absolutely delicious (tho not cheap) steak restaurant on the top of v trendy hotel (Katy Perry was there the other day, FWIW!)

also, and I know it's a cliche but still, the Van Gogh museum is GREAT

Skiing holiday coming up- what do we do, at the end of a long day, when our 5 and 8 year old don't want to carry their skis?? Always a problem with skis and poles....
