The city of Amsterdam has a reputation. Your mind may conjure up images of canals
… or maybe even “coffeeshops
” or the city’s infamous Red Light District. But this only accounts for a small part of Amsterdam’s story. After visiting for the first time earlier this year, I quickly realized (in the span of a long weekend) that Amsterdam might be one of my favorite cities. I absolutely loved the unique brickwork, the gorgeous expansive canals, the rich history, great food, and general amiable disposition of the people.
