Amsterdam and I have never really gotten along. After some moon-cake-related issues in 2002, when my best friends told me they were celebrating their wedding anniversary and one of their 30th birthdays in Amsterdam while I was abroad, I couldn’t say no to a meet-up in a city I hadn’t planned on.

While I, naturally, had some issues with the city yet again (I thought my shin collapsed, but it was really paranoia and the fault of the Dampkring), I did love spending time with my best friends in a foreign country. Aside from the coffee shops, we did some other tourist things, too, like visiting the “i amsterdam” installation, and a canal cruise.

One of the things I loved most about Amsterdam in May? The sunsets at 10 p.m.



  1. Ohhhh Amsterdam…. Many visits there in my early to middle 20s. Not that I remember any of them. Just kidding (I think)

    There is so much more to it than it’s reputation, I wish more people knew that.

    Dampkring- yikes- that brings back some memories. đŸ™‚
