AMSTERDAM 2017

AMSTERDAM WAS A LAST MINUTE DECISION (AND ONE OF THE BEST THINGS I EVER DID!). I TOOK THE BUS FROM BRUSSELS (AND GOT OFF AT THE WRONG STATION BUT THAT’S ANOTHER STORY :D), IT WAS RAINING LIKE CRAZY AND I KINDA GOT LOST AGAIN LOOKING FOR MY HOTEL. I WAS AT DAMRAK STREET (THAT’S LIKE THE CHAMPS-ELYSÉES OF PARIS) AND ASKED A GIRL FOR THE DIRECTION, WE GOT TO TALKING, IT TURNED OUT SHE WAS TRAVELING ALONE TOO SO WE DECIDED TO EXPLORE THE CITY TOGETHER AND THAT’S HOW WE BECAME FRIENDS.

I GOT TO THE HOTEL, AND MADE SOME MORE FRIENDS. WE ALL WENT TO THE RED LIGHTS DISTRICT AND HAD DINNER AT THE BULLDOG COFFEESHOP (I WOULDN’T ADVISE YOU TO EAT THERE, THEY TAKE FOREVER TO GET YOUR ORDER AND THE FOOD ISN’T REALLY WORTH IT).AMSTERDAM CITY GUIDE NETHERLAND PAYS BAS SOLO TRAVALER GIRL GLOBE TROTTER VOYAGE LEILA BOOULARBAHAMSTERDAM CITY GUIDE NETHERLAND PAYS BAS SOLO TRAVALER GIRL GLOBE TROTTER VOYAGE LEILA BOOULARBAH

WE HAD A QUICK BREAKFAST AT THE DUNKIN DONUTS NEAR THE HOTEL, THEN WENT TO THE IAMSTERDAM SIGN WHO HAPPENS TO BE IN THE MUSEUMS AREA. WE DIDN’T BOOK OUR TICKETS FOR THE VAN GOGH AND ANNE FRANK HOUSE EARLIER, SO WE SETTLED FOR THE MOCO MUSEUM THAT WAS SHOWCASING THE WORKS OF BANKSY AND LICHTENSTEIN.

AFTER A QUICK STOP AT THE HOTEL, I WENT TO THE BODY WORLD MUSEUM IN DAMRAK STREET. I HONESTLY DIDN’T EXPECT MUCH BUT I WAS PLEASANTLY SURPRISED BY THE AMOUNT OF INFORMATION AND REAL HUMAN ORGANS! IT’S AN EXPERIANCE I DEFINITELY RECOMMAND YOU DO ON YOUR TRIP TO THE NETHERLANDS.
