Once Upon a Time in Amsterdam

It has been a long time ... 

Life happens, time happens and you simply find yourself feeling overwhelmed and busy without actually achieving anything. Some say this will pass. I hope it would, because I want to do so mu h more, but I feel that I can't. 

My trip to Europe in April was a blast and I couldn't be more happy with all the cities that I got to see for the first time in addition to my beloved Italy, that I could visit and re-visit every single year of my life. I was planning on talking about every city I visited and the places that I recommend to see, but somehow that plan didn't happen. Instead I want to share so shots from the Amsterdam airbnb apartment that we stayed in. 

Usually when traveling to European countries, I prefer staying in local apartments through Airbnb, where you can actually live your vacation as a local citizen. For Amsterdam, we knew that we wanted a very design oriented apartment with character (since we are pretty obsessed with anything Scandinavian) and that's exactly what we got. The place belonged to a local movie director who has a taste for vintage and raw materials. 

For me, I could have stayed in that apartment the entire 4 days that we had in Amsterdam, but I am glad that I didn't, because the city had so much charm and beauty to offer that It would have been a total shame to spend any moment of the day not wondering around the city.
