Why I Love Amsterdam – A Photo Essay

Revisiting this post because of Prompt#16 of #Indie30

 

I just got back from my 5th time in Amsterdam. People here in Lisbon ask me why do I keep going there, and people there are begining to ask me when do I move…and I can´t say I haven’t considered it.

It’s really difficult to put in words what’s so special about the city…it’s mainly about the people I know there and this energy the city transmits. Sometimes images do speak louder than words, so here are some from these trips, that show why I love Amsterdam:

 

1. Because on the first day of the first time I was there I met Ivo and we’ve been good friends ever since.

2.Because of Queen’s Day, 3. Because they really know how to party, 4 Because of the people I’ve met there
