Amsterdam Vibes

Amsterdam was one of the most charming places I've ever found myself lost in. The buildings are the most architecturally unique and adorable I've ever seen, and they never seem to end, as the canals snake through the whole city filled to the brim with bicycles and friendly, happy people. I won't lie, I actually did worry about getting myself through the weekend without being killed by a biker (they seem to have the whole "yield for pedestrians" thing backwards in their country) but I managed to survive and tell the tale of my wonderful weekend. It was a bit chilly the whole weekend, and it rained on and off in the evenings, but this didn't take away from our extremely pleasant experience. On Saturday we woke up and enjoyed a delicious brunch at Vinnie's, a tiny cafe we discovered that did not disappoint, and then spent several hours walking around and exploring our way to the Van Gogh museum. The art inside was absolutely amazing, with so many beautiful and inspirational colors. The works were small, which was surprising to me, but they were so gorgeous that each one seemed to envelop my attention and draw my eyes all over the canvas. Afterwards, we strolled to the Anne Frank house, which was a very moving experience. The house holds so much history, which gave me so much to think about through the whole tour. It also was not overly crowded inside since it was so small, which made it a nice experience as we were taking in all the emotions and history. The rest of our day consisted of more walking (and some shopping, of course) and a yummy dinner. The entire city is just built to be explored on foot, and you can't take a wrong turn, because every street is so charming and beautiful. I wish it hadn't been so cold because I didn't want to take off my gloves to take pictures while out and about, but I still managed to get a few good shots. I could've taken pretty pictures from every single spot I stood in, but chose only the best I saw in order to avoid my hands going numb. The trip was way too short, I wish I could have explored even more, but it gives me more of a reason to return in the future!
