CITY TRIP: Amsterdam

May 07, 2017

I visited Amsterdam for two days with a good friend of mine. We stayed in a hostel about a 20 minute bike ride from the city center.
 Whatever you do, rent a bike. I don't really like riding bikes too much since I'm a pretty lazy person but I had the best time riding my bike around Amsterdam. There are bike paths everywhere! You get to see so much more of the city than by public transport and walking.
 Visit the Bloemenmarkt but don't expect too much. It is definitely cool to walk through but don't expect to see bunches of flowers. Unfortunately the only patch of tulips we found were in the park.
We actually went to the park twice. It's great to take a break from biking around and sipping some wine after dinner.

The first day we spent trying out different cheeses right by the Bloemenmarkt and then bought ourselves some and a delicious dip to take home! Apart from cheese make sure to try some stroopwafels!
 We found this ice cream shop which had delicious creamy ice cream for a really cheap price!

Amsterdam has some great thrift shops. I bought myself this really cool retro jacket!
Also just wander around the Jordaan neighborhood where you can find cute shops and cafés.
My plan is to finish up my bachelors degree in Amsterdam so we checked out the university as well. I can't wait to move to this city!
 But the best thing really is just to sit by the canals and  picnic. We hardly spent any money there during our trip since the weather was great and we spent most of our time riding our bikes around. 
Here is a list of things we wanted to to but didn't get around to:
- watch the sunset at Pllek
- visit the Stedelijk museum (modern art)
- visit the Kattenkabinett (a cat museum with actual cats roaming around!)
Have you ever been to Amsterdam? What were your favorite things to do?
