After exploring Paris for a few days, we made our way to idyllic Amsterdam, another European city with a vibrant local culture.
We stayed at Generator Hostel in Amsterdam. It was super cool because it’s in the middle of a park. Even if it’s not in the city center, I still had a good time because they had almost everything to keep you occupied: a restaurant-bar, a hall, a lounge area, with games, a cool basement bar, and more. It was definitely a fun crowd, and unless you were sightseeing, you’re pretty much covered.
Among the many things we ate in Amsterdam was squid fries from this place called De Hallen Amsterdam. It’s a really nice food court with so many interesting dining options.
Stroopwafel was also a must!
The highlight of our Amsterdam trip was doing the Heineken Experience. Miggy and I booked the longest tour, which apart from a special tour, included beer pairings with cheese, and a personalized bottle.
We got to see how they used to brew Heineken before, and even got to see a demonstration of how it’s done. Relive our experience through my vlog about Amsterdam:
It was the perfect end to a beautiful trip to Europe. There is of course, still so much more to explore, but I’ll save it for another time. 🙂
