It’s crazy that Amsterdam is just 45 minutes on the plane from my university in Brighton. I took a spontaneous trip with my boyfriend for a few days at the beginning of March and explored what this weird city had to offer.
I say weird because every corner you turn down the tiny winding streets and canals, you find something completely unexpected and different to where you were before. Coffee shops and the red light district are connected to an old nunnery and overbearing 17th century canal houses.
Unlike any city that I’ve visited before, Amsterdam definitely cements itself as one of the more magical.
