Dear Amsterdam,

Dear Amsterdam,

posted in: Personal, Travel | 12

 

recently I have come to the realization that I have seriously under-appreciated you and living so close to you. My wanderlust has always got me dreaming of places miles and miles away whilst forgetting about the beauty of the things that are right in front of me. You are a beaut. 

 

A little while back my mom and I took the train to Amsterdam. It was a sunny day and the city was surprisingly calm. We wandered around the streets and canals and it made me realize that my focus on traveling to far countries and going on adventures did not let me appreciate the beauty that this country has. You don’t have to go far to go on an adventure and so I really hope to implement this idea more in my life this year. I want to explore more of this country I’ve lived in my whole life before I’m about to tackle the rest of the world ;). So you can expect a bit more posts from my home turf, little day trips here and there and a lot of Amsterdam too! I’m really excited.

 

So dutchies, tell me, where should I go? What should I see? Bring on the recommendations!

 

Liefs,

Yara

    These photos make me yearn to g back with my daughter one day! The fact you can just day trip there makes me green with envy. We spent 4 days there a while back and had the best time just cycling around everywhere. We didn’t go, but aparently Amsterdam zoo is like, amazing! STrange as I’d never think to visit the zoo while there, but so I’ve heard ;) thank you for sharing, and getting my travel bug itching again!
    Beautiful captures of an amazing city, you do it justice

    Oh man, Amsterdam is one of my favorite cities. It’s so beautiful and just feels so homey!
    Travelling to nearby places is something I’m trying to get better at,. I always end up planning holidays for far away places, when there’s really so much right at my doorstep. And if there’s anything I regret while leaving in places abroad, it’s travelling more around in those areas! I mean, can you believe I currently live in Norway and I’ve never been to Stockholm? I know, I need to work on that! ;)

      Oh my goodness Hilde I know exactly what you mean! But let me tell you, Stockholm is amazing you really, really need to get your but over there! Where in Sweden are you currently living?
