What makes life special in Amsterdam?
Amsterdam will always be the city that holds my heart, even though I could fall in love with other cities throughout the years. I always compare Amsterdam to the steady boyfriend that you know you will always end up with, no matter how many temptations come your way. What makes life special in Amsterdam is the special energy of the city, the way it's so big, yet so small and the fact that dreams are never too crazy. Amsterdam is a city with very little boundaries, it's a place where everyone from all over the world comes to search for the next big dream. It's a city where I have always felt at ease, whether that was career-wise or on a personal level.
I love living in Amsterdam because really, there is no other place like it on the planet. The canals, the architecture, the history and the positive vibrations make sure that I can still be amazed when I wander through 'my' city and feel very lucky to be able to live here. Not to mention the amazing little fashion stores that you can find, always hidden in a secret alley.
