I visited the dutch capital in late November, and I have to admit, I loved it so much. I had mixed feelings when I arrived because as soon as the train door opened, the strong weed smell hit me. People smoking on every single corner, a 16-year-old guy puking next to the picturesque purple sunset, busy streets that needed a serious tidying, me trying not to lose my luggage while looking at the map on my phone. It was hectic. But in the next days, I realised, this city changes radically after sunset. During day, you can explore the city to its fullest, walk along the canals, go to museums, have a free city tour or why not a bike tour. As soon as the sun goes down, everyone goes insane. 

HOW TO GET THERE:
Most people arrive to Amsterdam with an airplane, but because I bought super cheap tickets to Brussels, I decided to take Flixbus. It takes less than 3 hours, and if you book it on time, you can find reasonable priced tickets. I payed around 30 euros for return ticket.

WHERE TO SLEEP:
I kind of screwed up on the sleeping department because I kept on postponing the booking. I wanted to go with Couchsurfing, but only guys would respond and since I was traveling alone, I didn't want to take the risk. So I stayed at Generator Hostel which was quite expensive since it was also weekend. For 100 euros/ 2 nights I didn't get breakfast, towels, padlocks and I had to pay for leaving my bag there for a few hours after I checked out. But it was the nicest place I ever stayed at, really comfy and clean. Also, at night there were big parties and in the rooms you couldn't hear anything. I could sleep like a baby!

WHAT TO SEE:
Well, there are so many amazing places you can visit in Amsterdam! I am only gonna tell you about the ones I managed to tick off my list, but hopefully will get the chance to go back and visit everything!
1. Van Gogh Museum: This was on the top of my list, but to be honest, I was a tiny bit disappointed. The ticket was around 17 euros, and only a few of his famous paintings were exposed. 
2. Free walking tour - whenever I am in a city alone, I go to a free walking tour because it is the best way to meet other people and explore the city. I went with Sandemans, and there are so many amazing tours like bike tours, red light district tour or alternative Amsterdam tour, which I really wanted to go to but didn't have time. Maybe next time!!
3. Coffee shop - this is a weird one, I know. I don't do drugs, but that doesn't stop me from entering a coffee shop and see others use it. I honestly saw things I never knew existed or only saw it in movies, I also saw a 70 year old guy fell off a bar chair because he was stoned, haha. 
4. Iamsterdam sign at the Rijksmuseum - Didn't have time for the museum, and honestly there were so many people at the sign, I didn't get a proper photo, haha. But if you go in winter time, you can borrow skates and go ice skating! 
If you have more time you can visit the Anne Frank house (be sure to book the ticket in advance!), Vondelpark or if you are interested in science/microbiology you can find the only Microbe museum in the world here: Micropia! 

WHERE TO EAT:
I met two girls, and we were craving Mexican food, so we went to El Vino Restaurant. It was sooooo yummmmy, best Mexican food I ate!! If you want to grab a morning coffee, I suggest you go to the 't Hotel and grab a coffee, it costs less than a Starbucks and the place is so instagrammable! But also, if you go with a friend/bf you can check out this place as your place to stay as well, saw their rooms look so unique!

Hope you enjoyed this blogpost! Next week I will move to Turkey, don't forget to follow me on Instagram @saci_cfc (or follow #myturkishdiary) to see more pictures!



Have an amazing week!
xoxo,
Saci

  6. This format split the standard 35 mm film into two strips half as wide and was able to be loaded into the camera in daylight.

  15. The Programming Homework Help specialist that worked on my Java programming assignment was a bit slow. He must have been a rookie from the way he interacted with me. While I'm not saying that he offended me, the expert left so many mistakes on the Java documentation. What's good, he delivered it on time and I must appreciate him for the best efforts and good grades. I'll hire Java Homework Help him again, though not emergency orders.

  17. I have an incomplete Matlab Assignment Help that I need to be done. Only five questions are remaining. I couldn't complete them because of a family emergency that I got caught up in. I need someone better than me to do the task and clearly outline the solutions so that I get an easy time reviewing them before sending them for the final review by my lecturer. Please only award the task to a Bachelor's degree Matlab Homework Helpp specialist; no diplomas or less, please.

  18. I thought I was served by the best Economics Assignment Help expert ever on my first assignment until I kept getting higher grades with subsequent experts across the seasons. I then realized that economicshomeworkhelper.com doesn't take chances when it comes to hiring their Economics Homework Help specialists. All the experts are well qualified and experienced for the assignments. Keep it up!

  19. I had the worst experience ever C++ Homework Help assigned my emergency order to a slow Programming Assignment Help expert. I believe that they understand these freelancers better than us, thereby expecting you to award the right thing to the right person that can tackle it. Otherwise, the programmer apologized for the potential losses I might have incurred after being late. I have another order again this time, please assign it to the right person.

  20. While he only got close (but didn't manage) the grade I expected from him, this Statistics Assignment Help provider satisfied me with his attention to my instructions and speed. He did his best to deliver the order in time without any mistakes. The guru is also a top-rated Statistics Homework Help expert that I've worked within the past, and I love his skills in that area, too. I recommend him to other students. Thanks for the assistance at a low price.

  21. I worked with an inexperienced but intelligent Matlab Homework Help specialist. He made many mistakes but always had the point. At the same time, he was fast. I think he'll make a coveted Matlab Assignment Help on this platform and the world. He got me close to an A and I loved the results. Meanwhile, I'm always happy with your services and results. Keep it up, pals!

  22. All my instructions were closely adhered to by the Economics Homework Help provider. He even went out of the way and added more references to the essay, which earned me more scores. My lecturer was more impressed than ever, and so was myself. However, I took longer than expected waiting for the quote, which came 45 minutes later. Meanwhile, the Economics Assignment Help is worth every penny spent on it.

  23. Programming Assignment Help tutor's online lessons surpassed all the other ones I've ever seen or experienced. The C++ programming expert responded to my needs fast and appropriately. For example, I was so happy at the way he kept asking me if I had any questions and answering them appropriately. Despite being a native English speaker, C++ Homework Help languages spoke slowly to ensure that I got every word of his explanations.

  24. Since my freshman year (my last year at the university), I have used Matlab Homework Help services for various types of assignments.

  28. Hey. I'm faced with a do-or-die situation here. I failed a signal processing assignment and I have to redo it.

  29. I spent half the amount I used to spend to get Economics Homework Help of the same length from another provider online. Moreover, I got the fastest and most excellent service from the Economics Assignment Help provider than ever. I just pray that the organization doesn't bring down the quality of their services in any way so that I continue this way to the end of my college studies.
