Amsterdam

Amsterdam has been on our bucket list for quite some time and as soon as we found a reasonably priced plane tickets – we booked them, of course! What else would you expect?

We found a cute apartment to stay in and that just made the whole trip even better. It was located near the tram station so our daily rides to the city centre were short and highly accessable. Extra points for Amsterdam (haha)!

Amsterdam being itself – crowded, smoky (no, the smoke I mean does not come from chimneys) and loud can be tiring, so staying in the apartment located in a very quiet, family-friendly neighborhood was what we longed for. We came to Amsterdam on a “King’s day” and that was quite a shocking experience to be honest. Not to judge, but what they call a “King’s day celebration” was rather chaotic experience than a celebration. There were trash everywhere, people were much more than just very drunk and literally half of them were vomitting in the middle of the street. Maybe that’s how they have fun, but it sure did not seemed like fun to us.

As soon as King’s day was over things got calmer eventhough city remained very crowded throughout the week. We explored the city far and wide and found out  everything was reachable by foot. I must admit all those canals and old houses really grew on me.

If I had to point out one thing about Amsterdam that I really like? The number of really cute coffee and brunch places. If you ever visit Amsterdam I bet you won’t be able to decide where you want drink your morning coffee. Oh and another thing would be food – food is also something worth trying!
