Amsterdam is a beautiful city starting with the Central Railway Station (Amsterdam Centraal).

Who do you think that Amsterdam is just marijuana and prostitution is sadly mistaken.

Of course, in some “coffee shops” of the city marijuana is available for purchase because it is legalized, but that is it. For those, like me, who do not enjoy marijuana just avoid this places. Outside the “coffee shops” marijuana is not allowed.

As for prostitution, yes, it exists because it is also legal, but there are limited areas for this practice, including the famous “Red Light District”, where prostitutes are found in streets showing themselves behind “shop windows”, as if they were goods.

Communication in Amsterdam is extremely easy – despite the official language is Dutch, almost everyone speaks English, and sometimes also other languages ​​such as Spanish and Portuguese – the people of Holland is very good with languages.

But let’s get to what really matters, cool tips from Amsterdam.

Lodging:

I found a great hotel option: it is inexpensive, is in a very peaceful and quiet area, in addition to bakeries, markets and restaurants all around. It is the “easyHotel” (http://www.easyhotel.com/hotels/amsterdam.html), the rooms are small but comfortable and very clean.

The hotel is easily accessible: just use the Tram (streetcar) No. 25, which departs from Central Station and crosses the main tourist attractions, and get off at station “F. Bolstraat”, which is less than 100 meters from the hotel.

Restaurant:

When we travel we like to eat well but do not want to pay a lot and we also seek a tasty and healthy food – nobody wants to eat junk food and run the risk of getting sick on the trip,  isn’t it?

This restaurant is amazing, because it has healthy food, and the best you can choose and see the food being cooked as you order, all fresh.

This is the restaurant “La Place” (http://www.laplace.nl/), located on the street Kalverstraat 203 (the main pedestrian street of the city center), close to the “Flower Market” (Bloemen Markt).

Flower Market (Bloemen Markt):

A beautiful place with a pleasant aroma. There you will find many flowers, especially the famous tulips from Amsterdam.

Anne Frank House (Anne Frak Huis)

There you will know who she was, how she lived and why became known the history of the sweet girl Anne Frank.

She was a Jewish girl who lived at the time of the 2nd World War, and to escape persecution of Nazis, she hid with her parents, her sister and four other people in a hidden room inside the house that now houses the Museum of Anne Frank (Anne Frank Huis).

They Remained hidden there for two years (between 1942 and 1944), and in this period Anne Frank registred everything that she lived in her diary/journal.

However, the history did not end well, because shortly before the war finished their hideout was discovered and the only survivor at the end was her father, Otto Frank, who decided to publish the diary/journal of his daughter, making this story famous worldwide.

The story has several other striking details that you should see by yourself.

TIP: For being a very busy attraction, there are long waiting lines to make the visit to the Anne Frank House, so my advice for you is to buy and book your visit on-line at least two months in advance to avoid the long queue.

Hello girls, as you know I’m on vacation, traveling around the world in search of new trends, but be calm: the blog goes on!

My first stop on my journey was in Netherlands, more  specifically in Amsterdam, a charming town, with many amazing places, but I’ll tell you more about the city later in a post about tourism ok.

Well, as the Dutch women are highly beautiful and very stylish, and also very polite and friendly, I loved to know each one of the girls of this post.

So let have a look at the girls.

This day was a bit cold, so the looks were composed of scarves, military boots, parkas, and so on …
