During the 17 and 1800’s Portuguese influence was expanding rapidly with the advancement of naval shipping and trade. Before long the customs, traditions and most importantly foods, came back home with them when the voyage was done. After 200 years, there are few dishes or ingredients around the world that Portugal has not borrowed or integrated into the cultural cuisine.

The most common types of food you will find in Portuguese cuisine are hearty and inexpensive. They are fond of using various spices and other indigenous ingredients including cinnamon, vanilla, saffron, and several types of nuclear-strength hot peppers. Their food is highly reminiscence of the neighboring Arabian and Moorish specialties.

With Amsterdam being the capital city of the Netherlands, it is one of the most liberated and tolerant cities in the world. Coffee shops, the red light district and the overall open-minded people make Amsterdam a traveler’s dream. However, there is more to see in Amsterdam besides coffee shops and the famous red light district.

  • The Anne Frank House. Anne Frank was one of the victims of the Nazi regime in the Second World War. The Anne frank House is the historic home where Anne Frank and her family hid from the Germans. The queues for the house can be enormous but it’s a impressive and worthy sight to visit. The best time to go is around 8 30 am when the museum is opening or at noon, because there are less people and you won’t have to wait too much in line. It would be ideal if you can get a ticket from your hotel which would put you in the front of the line.
  • The Nemo Museum. When travelling with younger children the Nemo Museum is a great idea for a day of fun and culture. The museum offers exhibits which stimulate youngsters by including them in the collection of science and technology. Also check the Cafe from the top of the Nemo Museum if you can at night for a great view of the city.
  • Rijksmuseum. If you haven’t been to the Rijksmuseum, you haven’t been to Amsterdam. This museum holds masterpieces, furniture and beautiful jewelery and other stunning items. If you visit this museum, make sure to see the Nightwatch by Rembrandt.
  • The Royal palace. The Netherlands are a monarchy and the Royal Palace is the official Royal residence. However, the Royal family ( Queen Beatrix and prince Willem Alexander) live in the Hague. The Royal palace holds a large collection of royal furniture, chandeliers and other exclusive items.
