woohooO!!! I’m finally back and so ready to keep telling you about my adventures. So let’s talk about Amsterdam.
Sitting down with my aunt in London, looking at the map and at tickets, I decided to go there about a day or two before I actually did. So heads up guys!! everything about it was soooo last minute.
I was in town for one day only. A day full of joy.
I got there very early in the morning and took the train to “Amsterdam Centraal”, on my way made a friend (she was a Brazilian student) and we decided to go for breakfast together. We found a little cozy place not far from Amsterdam Centraal, it wasn’t vegan, but tea, juice, and a plate of fruit got me going.
At this point, I still had my carry on with me and had no idea about anything bc it was also my first time visiting. Yes.
There was a hotel by, I went to ask about staying there and it was fully booked. Luckily I overheard about lockers at Amsterdam central, and your girl who was just across the street had no plans, but definitely, wasting part of the morning looking for a hotel wasn’t it. Went there to ask, locked her stuff for about 💶€15, and off to explore. So fancy lmao. (It was very safe guys like you need your credit card and a code to open it). Consider it if you are going on a short trip.
I wore an oversized t-shirt, short leggings, and snickers, which was great to comfortably walk around the city all day. No make-up, only SPF20 sunscreen , and red lipstick.
On my bag: sunglasses, watch, beautifying oil, red lipstick, portable charger, passport, 💶 💳.
I spend the day exploring nonstop, and while The Anne Frank House and some museums are on my next list, I made it to tulips and art markets, independent shopping streets, canals, Museumplein, different parks, Red Light District (the energy there was sooo creepy), The Arty Jordaan, blah blah blah.
I loved how locals bike everywhere. My beautiful hair expressing itself freely on this picture, right before I found the tastiest vegan place. 😋 🌱
Have I mentioned my cousin lives there?, so I got in touch and gladly no meter how last minute it was him and his family managed it to meet me around 4 pm (THANK YOU❤️, sorry I could not stay ), they showed me the rest of the city, we went for dinner and I headed to my next stop, France 🇫🇷 . Will tell you more on my next post.
If you have no rush and are just down to adventure like I was, once you get to Amsterdam you can take the train to “Amsterdam Centraal”, from there it’s easy to get to pretty much everywhere.
