Hey there! I'm Pilar, your friendly local host here in Amsterdam. One of my favorite pastimes is going for long walks along the cobblestone streets, especially during the spring and summer months when the countryside around Amsterdam is simply breathtaking. And when the weather gets chilly, you'll often find me cozied up at the Hortus Botanicus, marveling at its centuries-old gardens. As a foodie, I've made it my mission to uncover the best eateries and hidden culinary gems in the city. From trendy cafes to traditional Dutch pubs, I know just the spot to satisfy any craving. So, whether you're looking to explore Amsterdam's rich history, indulge in its delicious cuisine, or simply soak in its unique charm, I'm here to make sure your experience is nothing short of unforgettable. Let's embark on this adventure together!
