I AmStardam

My recent travels took me to Amsterdam and I must say I loved it!
I really like cities like Amsterdam or Copenhagen where you live next to the river.

Ok, all major cities are situated next to a river, that’s history. But not all of them are charming as these two. No high buildings or skyscrapers. Just cute little houses. Looks more peaceful and sync with nature.

Since I only hadΒ 24 h I took a boat ride in the canals and a walk around the city centre.
The boat ride takes an hour and it is a nice way too see the city and learn something new.

These are some pics taken from the boat. It is a bit hard to take nice pics when the boat is moving all the time.

We were lucky with the weather. It was sunny and warm and perfect to wear just a sweater, no jacket.

I really love the architecture! I guess it’s a nice change from all the glass skyscrapers when you’re living in Dubai. X)

Of course, in the centre, you can smell the weed on the streets. It is not uncommon since it is legal along side with prostitution.

Here are some pics of the city. You can take pictures of the ladies in the Red District though.

What I also love is that they are a biking city! Biking culture is big! Everybody rides a bike, they have their own paths on the streets… Healthy life stlyes! Gotta love it! πŸ˜€

As you can see from pictures there are loads of little canals and about 1000 bridges. So there are plenty of places to walk around, explore and get lost in!

So go ahead and do it! πŸ˜‰

Ps. And oh yeah! Rub a boob for good luck! Hhhh

Relaxing at Bastakiya

I want to show you a beautiful old part of Dubai called Bastakiya. If you read my OOTD Boho Chic, you remember I mentioned it. If you missed it, seeΒ it here. πŸ˜‰

It is all renovated to look like it used to and it is a tourist attraction. There are museums, nice restaurants and loads of local artists have their shops there. You can browse, watch them work, talk to them and buy a unique piece of art.

Enjoy the pics! =)
(There is also a little DIY project hidden. See if you can find it! :))

Out on the streets…

I really like the sculptures which throw different shadows. Which one is your favourite?

I would also recommend a restaurant called Arabian Tea House!Β I really like how it has flowers all around, and the blue of the benches and the white really gives it a nice feel. So beautiful! ^^

I have loads more pictures, but omg it would be crazy to upload them all!

It is a really cool place to visit and relax, have a bite to eat and a drink. Everything is nicely decorated and I love the bright colours!

Have you ever been there? What did you think?

I’m off to bed and then to Jakarta!

What is the city?…

Hi!

Take two on playing the guessing game on which city it is! I got some nice likes on the last one, but no one dared to guess where I’ve been 😦

So put on your thinking hats and let the guessing begin! =D

Been on another lovely trip. It was nice even though everything was closed because of Easter holidays. Still, only the walk through the city was filled with culture.

Take a look! πŸ™‚
