Have you seen this? This guy gives Americans a bad name. Amsterdam is one of my favourite cities in the world and definitely safe as houses. Very, very pretty houses! We had a great day this week when I went with Alex and Zoe. We wandered the canals, did lots of browsing of vintage, stopped for coffee and delicious lunch and checked out some of the more ‘interesting’ areas of town. The Red Light District is an area you need to experience for yourself. Bustling with tourists and cute little spots to stop for a drink or some frites it’s not at all as unsavoury as it sounds. The contrast of all these different aspects of the city living peacefully side by side is what makes this place so amazing.
