Travel: Amsterdam

Amsterdam canals

 Amsterdream, by Romain Mattei

Amsterdam is ripe for rambling, its compact core laced by atmospheric lanes and quarters. You never know what you’ll find: a hidden garden, a shop selling velvet ribbon, a jenever (Dutch gin) distillery, an old monastery-turned-classical-music-venue. Wherever you end up, it’s probably by a canal. And a café. And a gabled building that looks like a Golden Age painting. – from Lonely Planet’s Guide to Amsterdam

    Beautiful! I went to Amsterdam once when I was much younger, and this post made me feel super-nostalgic. 🙂

    Oh, fun! One of my best friends lived there for a little while and loved it/talks about it all the time. What was your favorite part of it? (And, did they have good hot chocolate, because that is my main criteria)
