The Amsterdam Experience

Getting There

Amsterdam…I always wanted to go there and I finally made it. A city full of beautiful buildings, art and freedom.
I got to go there with someone I really love as well, which made travelling very exciting!

The whole way there we couldn’t stop our hearts from beating fast and we made plans non stop about all the things we wanted to see. Of course my first concern the minute I walked out of the airport was to take pictures.

First Few Days

The first day there we stayed with a couple, friends of Chris, so I got to meet those amazing people and I wish I get the chance to travel with them again in the future, and then I got to walk the city up and down, get lost in it, see the canals, the bikes and talk to friendly people along with having new experiences.

The Middle of the Trip

One of the most breathtaking experiences was being in the house of Anna Frank. It was a historical awakening and it was very emotional being within the same walls that those tortured people had to live in for 3 years just for being who they were.

Towards the End

One of my favourite parts was tasting a Dutch dish, called bitterballen!

Getting Home

Amsterdam is definitely a city I would live. Being there with Chris made me feel complete. Him, me and the city. Going back was rather hard but Greece will always be my home and I will always be happy getting back to it. After all, I had really missed my cat!
I will definitely visit again, since I came back I’m still there when I’m dreaming.
