My most exciting things to do in Amsterdam

Your perfect Local will share your interests, personality and passion for meeting like-minded travelers, as well as understanding your lifestyle, language and culture. Whatever your interests are, we can connect you with a like-minded Local who can’t wait to show you the places you’ll love to visit, eat at venues where the food is to your taste and share a side of their city that they know will captivate you! But some of our Locals' favourite things to do in Amsterdam are checking out local breweries and sampling beer brewed right in the city, spending the day at converted old factories and warehouses that have become cultural hubs, creative spaces, markets and festival sites, discovering hidden rooftops with the best views of Amsterdam, enjoying traditional local pancakes, dining at sleek waterfront restaurants and exploring the narrow cobbled streets and canals.

I was born in Amsterdam and have always loved the buzz. Amsterdam has such a vibrant and colourful energy about it. I lived and worked in different areas during different stages of my life. I enjoyed being a student in the center as well as working in the exiting area of multimedia; the company I worked for was situated in an old hidden church on one of the canals! There are so many interesting places in Amsterdam to discover. In 1999 I moved to Ireland for 14 years. There I studied theatre, improvisation, storytelling and puppetry. Later I performed and taught children and adults to improvise and play creatively, which was brilliant. Empowerment through the arts was always my target and in 2010 I came across a coaching modality (verbal and hands on sessions). Since then I give sessions and workshops. All the while Amsterdam kept calling me back. So 3 years ago I finally listened and here I am in Amsterdam again. I love people! Being with and talking to people is easy and fun for me. From children to elderly people and everything in between. I am easy going, always in for a laugh and interested in other ways of looking at things. Has this person from this place different points of view than that person? People fascinate me! Would you like to go on an adventure of your choosing (with my input of course) in AMsterdam? How much fun can we have? How does it get better than that?

I have lived in Amsterdam for 10 years now, and the city still doesn’t bore me. Though I have lived in many places and travelled the world, I would always come back to Amsterdam. It is really my city, it has stolen my heart and I Invite you to let me carry this love onto you. I have lived in Ghana and South Africa for 5 years and just returned from a 4 month university exchange to Boston. Because of this I think I can adapt and connect to people from different cultures more easily. I am always genuinely interested in how others perceive certain aspects of life and wouldn’t be scared to ask their opinion. How else can we get a more worldly view, right? Right now, I am a university student, but I wasn’t always. I have pursued a professional career in dance for 15 years until I was 20. This is the artistic side in me, and I still love going to dance classes with friends. Also I keep myself updated to all new dance events coming to town. Since that time I have begun running and doing yoga as well. If there’s one thing people always tell me, is that I have lots of energy and never fail to entertain. But after a nice work-out there's nothing better to have a late Sunday brunch at one of the local eateries, which you'll find me doing almost every weekend. Food is really another passion I have in life. I don’t just like food, I LOVE it (who doesn’t?) And I enjoy going on the hunt for the new best eatery in town. If I could sum up what people love about me I would say that I am: kind, sincere and loving, but at the same time straight-forward and direct. Also people like the fact that I can take control and be a leader (even though this isn’t what I would naturally do at first). I am very organized and punctual, but I always take time to have a conversation with someone, because I believe as people we need other people to really feel alive. Life on your own isn’t fun, we need others to share it with and I really hope I can share my city, the city of Amsterdam, with anyone who is interested!
