If Amsterdam was a person


If Amsterdam was a person, she would be a lady. Fun, quirky, warm, friendly. 

The woman who tells captivating stories at cocktail parties, effortlessly pulls off a dress on a bicycle, helps you carry your heavy grocery bags home, and sleeps in late on a Sunday.

She's easy to fall in love with, loves a good bagel and a beer, and always has fresh flowers in her home. She's down to earth, but daring. And I like her a lot. 






























Let's be friends, Amsterdam.

  1. Love this!

    I've been keeping my eye on flights - like London, it's one of those places I imagine we'll get to one time or another but every time I see photos or posts about it (ahem, Liz Denfeld,) I want to jump on a plane immediately. This is no different!

    1. I know, aren't Liz's photos lovely? You should definitely go, it is not overrated in the least. The Dutch are the nicest people!

  2. You can get oval bicycle seats so the pointy part of the seat doesn't make a weird indentation in your skirt or dress! My mum bought one recently for when she cycles to work.

    Did you go to the FOAM museum whilst you were there? It's only just occurred to me that you would probably love it!

    1. It will charm just about anyone's socks off, I reckon (rain and chilly weather aside :)
