Visual Diary: A Short Trip To Amsterdam

I’ve spent a few days this September in Amsterdam. Here’s a little moody visual diary.

It was my first time visiting Amsterdam and I really liked its atmosphere from the moment we’ve arrived. I can imagine that it’s quite different, much quieter these days. Thus, my experience might have been a different one have I visited the city before corona. Nonetheless, what I enjoyed about it was the architecture, the houses at the canals left me wondering how they look on the inside. The same goes for the cozy houseboats. The people seemed super open and friendly, always ready to start a conversation. Another plus, everyone seems to speak English there, so if you don’t know Dutch, you’re gonna be just fine. There are people on bikes everywhere, no matter the weather. We had electric scooters with us, which we used all the time. With the bike paths all around the city, it’s so easy to get around. We were able to see so much, without getting out of breath (of course we walked quite a bit too). Nonetheless, highly recommend exploring the city by bike or scooter. We’ve been lucky with the weather, it was quite warm and best of all it didn’t rain. It was the perfect weather to take some moody pictures. In this post, I’m going to share some of them. There’re endless great guides out there already, so I’m going to share photographs only, but there’s one vegan food spot I want to recommend and I will do so at the end of this post.

Where to eat?

For a super delicious vegan meal I highly, highly recommend: Trevi’s Plant-based Italian Food. I know, I know, that’s not traditional Dutch food, but it was so good, I had to share it.
