Amsterdam, Noord-Holland 2014

Here's a few pictures from my recent two day trip to Amsterdam with my boyfriend.
Amsterdam is everything you read about it in books, everything you ever saw in movies and magazines and just as small. As quaint and idyllic as the city is, its transformation into a typical tourist city is not a pretty one. You hear more American drawls than Dutch accents, one too many Burger Kings and McDonalds and a mysterious amount of bikes in the canals. It's a tiny city (I overestimated the size, everything is within a ten minute walk within the city center) and I think I saw a lot of it in just a day and a half.
Making a new friend in a coffee shop, reuniting with an old one and the garbage collectors on strike made the roadtrip memorable.
