I’m not going to lie, I was a bit skeptical about visiting Amsterdam. I thought that it was just a cannabis paradise without much to offer besides that. Was I wrong? Yes. I was pleasantly surprised by the large amount of museums the city was home to, as well as the often changing yet aesthetically pleasing displays of art around the city. On my walk to and from the Van Gogh Museum I was able to view an array of street art, historical buildings and art exhibitions taking place throughout the ‘dam. I may have spent the entire day at the Van Gogh Museum, when I walked in it was morning and I made my exit at night. A day well worth it in my opinion. While there was no shortage in activities for those visiting Amsterdam with a focus more on art, there was definitely a surplus of coffee shops for those wanting to indulge in this liberated city. And when in Amsterdam, go to a coffee shop. The only thing I can tell you is to not eat an entire space cake by yourself, seriously. Haha.
