10 Things Everyone Needs To Do In Amsterdam

Many people focus on the nightlife when they visit Amsterdam, but there is so much more to the beautiful city.

10 Things Everyone Needs To Do In Amsterdam
Kelly Cruz

When many think of Amsterdam, the Netherlands they think of a party city where college kids go to drink and party until dawn. Amsterdam is a very free spirit place and has a very vivid nightlife, but what really surprised me was that the day-life was just as vivid and notable. It is a city that has so much culture and beauty within it without even trying. I recommend everyone to make a trip to Amsterdam at least once in their lifetime and here's why.

1. The dessert

Whatever cafe you walked into in Amsterdam they seemed to always have some type of delicacy that you could not miss out on.

2. The art

Wanrooki gallery had so much beauty within the gallery all unique work that just made you feel like you were in a wonderland.

3. The Albert Cuyp market

I am a fan of trinkets and delicious food and this market did not disappoint. With its freshly squeezed orange juice, deliciously fried waffles, and much more is making me miss Amsterdam just thinking about it.

4. Heineken Experience

This was such a fun experience you get the opportunity to learn about how Heineken is made and history of Heineken. You also get the chance to network with other guests that attend while beer tasting.

5. The street art

Amsterdam graffiti art is always so elaborate and has its own character yet somehow connect with each other when you look at it throughout the alleys.

6. The nightlife

Of course, the nightlife is a very lively and fun time in Amsterdam you get to meet people and just enjoy a great night out.

7. Canals

As the sun sets, the canal bridges light up and it is such a romantic setting. I recommend taking a stroll and enjoying this romantic view.

8. Amsterdam houses

Just strolling through the streets you will see the cute architect of the houses.

9. Stroll the park.

Make sure you have a picnic in the parks and enjoy a relaxing day.

10. Visit the museums

Van Gogh museum, Anne Frank's house, and more are situated in Amsterdam. History and art are all over Amsterdam.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,
