While we were having our vacation in Amsterdam we were staying in our own apartment ... which happens to be in the famous 9 Little Streets area ... yes I know we are very lucky. My husband and I bought this place almost 15 years ago and it was our first home together ... very special indeed :)
Normally we rent it out but for the summer we decided to keep it for ourselves and this gave me a wonderful opportunity to explore my home-city in the best way possible. Walking from our home to 'Het Spui' is only possible when I pass a super tiny street and it is in this little street that I discovered HearHear Amsterdam ... a tiny two story shop in Amsterdam ... and with 'tiny' I really mean 'tiny' ... unbelievable to think that back in the old days families would actually live here.
I am rambling on because I am so passionate about the canal area in Amsterdam ... feels like one big outdoor museum, you can almost feel the history of the city by strolling along the canals ... but let me get back to the subject of this post ... Bird Bingo ... a game I couldn't resist during my visit at HearHear. The game is of such high quality and made so beautifully ... of course the gorgeous bird illustrations by Christine Berrie help a lot :)
My boys and I haven't played it yet but I am sure it will be one of those all time favorites from now on...
