What’s up with Amsterdam?

For 3 years I was living in Madrid, Spain, enjoying the wonderful and relaxed lifestyle the Spaniards taught me. Many people from different countries in the world I met, and all of them burdened with questions about my home country. What’s up with coffee shops? What’s up with the red light district?

I liked answering these questions.

Now I’ve been back in Amsterdam for over a year. I have gladly decided to start my own website, trying to answer all those questions I received. Visitors coming to Amsterdam, but also expats, trying to find their way in this lovely city and meeting all those friendly, but sometimes peculiar Dutch people can find the answers on this website. Apart from that, I am trying to add more pages about things to do in the city.

I hope this website can be a entertaining and informative guide for those interested in Amsterdam. I have worked as a journalist and editor for over 10 years, so getting the facts right is very important to me. If you have any comments or suggestions, please let me know by sending me an email with the contact form below

Oh, and (almost) all photos are made by me as well.

Enjoy and tot ziens,
