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 caf√©. And a gabled building that looks like a Golden Age painting. – from Lonely Planet’s Guide to Amsterdam¬†
