How long have you been in Amsterdam?
Four years ago I packed my bags and moved to Amsterdam for love. I spent so much time visiting my girlfriend who is from the city, that it was hard not to also fall in love with this metropolitan village.
If you have a day off, what do you want to do?
Going on tour and cycling around the canals is what I love to do. This is definitely the best way to see the city and discover hidden spots. One of my favorite areas to go to is the Plantage neighborhood. It is home to Amsterdam’s botanical gardens ‘Hortus Botanicus’ and many other historical buildings.
What is your favorite thing to do in Amsterdam?
Something that is really special to me is the winter time in Amsterdam. And not those dark, wet and cold days, but the crisp blue sky winter days. The city becomes quite enchanting with the nights closing in earlier and the lights of the houses around Amsterdam turn it into a Van Gogh painting.
The best thing is to wander around the city’s small canals and grab a hot choco. There is also the possibility that the canals freeze over which sends the city into a ice skating frenzy that takes you back in time. In the evening it’s time to grab a special winter beer and unwind in a ‘Gezzelig‘ Amsterdam brown cafe.
