Amsterdam Photo Diary

Amsterdam would have to be one of my favourite European cities. I left the city with a firm knowledge that I would one day spend a year of my life fully discovering its cobbled streets and picnicking along every canal. There is simply far too much to squeeze into one weekend and I am already yearning to return to the places which I simply didn’t have time to uncover. It is bursting with adorably cute brunch spots and concept stores. I had no idea just how many hotspots there were nor just how cute they would be. I hope this photo diary gives you a little glimpse into this wonderfully diverse and liberal city which has stolen a piece of my heart. I’ll be publishing my Amsterdam guide very shortly as well.

Amsterdam is indeed such a beauty! Luckily, it’s only a short ride by car from Brussels where I live but I fully agree with you, weekends are not enough time to properly discover the city :) Looking forward to your travel guide!

Thank you so much – I really want to visit Brussels as well – sometimes I can’t believe I lived in Paris for 3 years and never visited as it’s just so close and easy to get to from Paris!
