Living in the canal ring is like living in a postcard – it’s incredibly beautiful. Even when I’m running mundane errands, like going to the grocery store, I marvel at how charming and pretty Amsterdam is. Biking around is a great way to unwind, especially after a long day at work. It’s relaxing when I don’t have to read my emails or messages, and I can just pay attention to my surroundings on my bike ride.
After living in New York, I find Amsterdam to be a very well-balanced city. In New York you can easily get caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and sometimes it’s challenging to carve out much-needed “me-time”. Here, the city has a lot to offer but it is also very livable and much more laid-back.
