About me
I moved to Amsterdam when I was 19 years old. Followed the expected path. Growing up somewhere in the Netherlands but moving to a bigger city to study, be free and do what you always wanted to do.

That’s what I did. I travelled parts of the world, parts of the Netherlands and parts of Amsterdam. Now I live my life with friends, doing the things I like: cooking, baking, watching movies, playing games, writing, reading and many other things.

Why Amsterdam?
I’ve loved Amsterdam since I heard about it as a child. I liked the aspect of a multicultural city with the famous canals, right next to a second hand store, a modern restaurant and a park just around the corner.

It’s true. Amsterdam is a multicultural city with many different aspects. The strange thing is, it works! Every neighbourhood has its own vibe and and it might seem chaotic at first but discovering every part of Amsterdam will let you see the way people live and react to each other.

Amsterdam might look small but it’s big in its differences, neighbourhoods and spots on offer. The big diversity has been a huge plus for me and I don’t see a reason to ever leave. There’s always something old or new waiting!

Where can you find me online?
