I fell in love with Amsterdam when I visited a few weekends ago. The streets ooze european charm – cobbled streets, canals, tall and skinny coloured houses reminiscient of a storybook. There are endless shades of brown, beige and green but the city is anything but boring. The liberal energy permeates the air; it’s a subtle scent of freedom.
Only spending two days there, we covered a lot of ground. From eating truffle scrambled eggs in the outskirts to wandering the colourful Van Gogh museum, it’s a city filled with sensory vivacity. I will always remember the sparkle of the disco ball on Saturday night and the rainbow that appeared for barely two minutes over the Rijksmuseum on Sunday right before we left for our flight. The colours of Amsterdam are truly charming.
