Travel Diary // A M S T E R D A M

On the ten hour flight from Johannesburg to Amsterdam, I imagined tall, lanky blond Dutch people who cycled around, recycling everything and eating, I don't know, fish paste and asking if I knew Die Antwoord or rode a lion to school. I was almost completely right. What I didn't imagine was how completely in love I would fall with this city.

From the architecture, to how incredibly well-dressed, beautiful and surprisingly diverse the people are, to the shopping, to - I'm at such a loss as to how to aptly describe what was the greatest time of my young life. To describe that I will never feel at such a peace anywhere else again and that if only I could have another three years to explore and love that city, it wouldn't be enough. It would also be shit expensive on my stomach but hella on my calves and quads.

  1. Amsterdam, is one of my favorite tourist destinations in the world. I visited this region many times in my life. Last time I have been there few months ago before my Boston to NY bus tour with my wife. It is very famous due to its beautiful canals to world-famous museums and historical sights. Mostly people like this city for its museums. Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum and Stedelijk Museum are famous but it also has many other.
