One of the friendliest cities in Europe I’ve been to, I have only good things to say about Amsterdam. So beautiful (that’s mooi in Dutch), I couldn’t get enough of the tall buildings, house boats, racks on racks of bicycles and endless canals. Considering we went at the beginning of winter – in that dreary nothing period when it’s cold and drizzly and weeks away from snow – I was super impressed with how charming the city was. We side-stepped our touristic instincts and simply caught up with old friends, hung out in our amazing apartment with it’s wooden floors and rooftop garden and discovered a few cool haunts to eat and drink. Our time in Amsterdam was definitely not long enough, and I shall be back again in Spring for sure.
