Daily Wanderlust: Amsterdam

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. I live in Holland and I agree upon Amsterdam…it actually isn’t that good because the emphasis on the naughty stuff. But you can filter it out or visit the tinier but cuter Utrecht


  2. 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™‚
