AMSTERDAM TRAVEL / PART 1

where do i even BEGIN?! if you are following me on instagram, you probably have noticed that i completely fell in love with amsterdam. i might even go ahead and say it’s my favorite european city that i’ve visited. it’s charming, it’s easy to fit right in with all of the english that is spoken here, there is tons of amazing design and style, the apartments are cool, it feels clean and safe…i could go on and on, really. i’m also a huge fan of paris and berlin, but amsterdam feels like the perfect combination. i’m so happy i finally decided to come here!

ok, so i’m going to break down my trip into a couple of posts, and they are gonna be loooong, let me warn ya. but i wanted to show you guys everything i enjoyed so far. i still have 6 days here, so i can post more at the end. as far as recommendations, i got them from all over. i came here with no plans at all. i asked instagram, my blog, my friends, my airbnb hosts, and a few locals. i ended up at some pretty great places…

i posted the inside of the first airbnb i rented right here. the neighborhood is the hip & trendy jordaan district. i took an uber (yes, they have uber here too. so convenient) from the airport to my apartment and i was so excited as i looked out the windows at the new sights. we pulled on to a tiny little street with a bar, a few little shops, and an adorable barber shop underneath where i was staying. the street is pretty quiet, but everything was very close to walk to. seriously, ideal location.

TUSCANY

i am posting a little out of order for my trip, but oh well! let’s start with tuscany…i took a plane into florence, took a shuttle bus about 5 minutes to the train station and there was a train to montevarchi every 30 mins or so. it’s super easy to just buy a ticket at the machine in the station (don’t forget to validate it) and hop on the next train out. it took me about 40 minutes to get there…
