On the second day in Amsterdam we visited the Stedelijk Museum as covered by my previous post. After this we went and had lunch in Vondel Park. It is a beautiful open space with ornamental lakes, wild parrots and plenty of dog walkers.
I would like you all to meet my Tontuu, Eric.
Eric is a house gnome from Lapland, who has decided to travel to the UK. He has lived for many years looking after his house, keeping it safe, but has grown tired of the same routine everyday and decided to become an adventurer.
Every gnome needs to have a cliche picture to send back home 🙂
He wanted to get a higher perspective of things so he could assess where to go next, unfortunately this plant pot was not high enough.
This was a much better view, but took him most of the morning to climb it! From this vantage point Eric spotted a park, Lapland doesn’t have many playgrounds due to all the snow and he was so excited to try it out.
He does love climbing! He found what seemed to him to be a massive lake with a very strange looking fish…
Whilst at the lake, Eric made a friend. It is a bit of an unusual pairing, his only friends at home are the local Reindeer and they get a bit too rowdy for him.
He can’t wait to see more of the UK, this was just the first adventure of many he told me…
