Every time I come to Amsterdam I love it that much more. Big cities are a bit scary for me but I find Amsterdam manageable. It’s almost impossible to get lost, and when you think you’re lost, just carry on going and it kind of sorts itself out! There’s so much to take in, from the biker riders alone (be careful – I always almost get taken out) to the ‘cafes,’ the tattoo parlours, the galleries and the collectors of beautiful old things! Some of the shop owners have been in their vintage/antique stores for 25 years so you should say hello and expect a terrific conversation on interesting topics.
