Hi future Dutchies! 👋🏼
Almost two months in Amsterdam and I am still not ready to go home. I have to say that Amsterdam is not what I had expected at all – first of all it is super sunny and warm (just kidding) and secondly, there are so many awesome things yet to explore. Keep reading to see all of the exciting things I did. 😉
As I already told before, I have been working on a few great projects at Baas & Baas marketing agency. One of them is pimping up the website. I can proudly say… it looks pretty awesome! This new website is to provide our visitors an easier way to learn about Baas & Baas’s services and solutions and also to allow the visitor to browse information based on their own choice. I added a screenshot of the site here below. If you would like to see the full look ➡ head over to the site: www.baasenbaas.nl.
Last week my mother came over to visit. I showed her around in the city that never sleeps. Firstly, we decided to visit the Stedelijk Museum. It is the largest Dutch museum dedicated to modern and contemporary art and design. The collection contains extraordinary pieces of art by world-renowned artists, including a great number of works by major twentieth-century Dutch artists. I took a few pictures of our visit with my camera but the battery died right after… Like, really dude?! 😤 I was so frustrated, I actually forgot I had a phone that takes excellent photos. 😂
A few weeks ago, I promised to go back to ADAM Lookout. I decided to take my cute mother with me. As we walked to the building, we saw so many tulips. 😍 There can never be enough tulips! Each spring, the Tulip festival celebrates the famous flower and ensures it blooms all over Amsterdam. All through the first half of April, more than 500,000 colourful and occasionally rare tulips can be seen in the gardens of museums, private homes and other city institutions.
Check the view from the Amsterdam Lookout at daytime:
A canal cruise on the water in Amsterdam was the cherry on the cake! 🍒 Besides providing a stunning backdrop to the city’s historical centre, floating down Amsterdam’s canals is one of the most memorable ways to discover the city’s sights and attractions. Whether you’re a first-time or frequent visitor, everything in Amsterdam seems a bit more magical when viewed from a boat! 🙌🏽
Did you know 165 (!) canals were created over the centuries to stimulate trade and transport and reclaim land to expand the city?! 😱
I am looking forward to read all about your Amsterdam experiences!
