Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands and the city I recently moved to. Living there was something I’d wanted for a long, long time. Before I moved to Amsterdam, I came there quite a lot. And each time, I loved it. I still do. Why? It’s a unique city, with beautiful canals, many cute crooked houses, art, open minded people and it doesn’t get boring at all. The final summer days in the city have been wonderful. I wore an outfit by Boohoo the other day. This skirt in combination with the off shoulder top, I just love it so much. The shoes are also from Boohoo. They have a huge collection of footwear. In collaboration with them, I’m sharing some tips on Amsterdam. Hope you all like it!
Favorite street: Haarlemmerstraat. This street is filled with cute stores, boutiques and cool cafes/bars. So a street that has it all. It’s also not as crowded as other streets, which is a plus as well I must say.
Places to go for food: Going for lunch is something I love doing, any luckily Amsterdam has a lot of good spots. Some of my favorites are: Vinnies, Pluk, Metropolitain and Betty Blue. All of them are worth a visit! If you’re looking for a place to get some ice cream, go to Ijscuypje. They have multiple locations. The pictures from above where shot in front of the one at the Prinsengracht.
Favorite parks/nature spots: Of course, the vondelpark is one of my favorite parks. During the summer, it’s just the perfect place to go and relax for a while. In Amsterdam there’s a botanical garden called Hortus Botanicus Amsterdam. You’ll find the most incredible flowers and plants there, as well as a lot of butterflies.
A new thing to visit in the city: Something that open recently is the swing at the A’DAM LOOKOUT. It’s a big building, across the central station (the IJ-zijde). On top of the building, they placed a swing so you can have a good view over the city, while swinging over the edge of the building. Sounds quite exciting right?
