Amsterdamming

I have moved to Amsterdam 3 years ago and I cannot imagine living anywhere else ever since. Join me in my daily walks through the streets of this beautiful city and you will get an idea of what it feels like to be living in this part of the world!

Web Site:

It was the Summer of 2010 when I decided to leave Bucharest (my hometown) and move to Amsterdam. It felt like the right thing to do and now, 3 years later, I find myself in the situation that I cannot live anywhere else but here!

Amsterdam is giving me peace, a lot of inspiration and the impulse to photograph, preserve and share the way I see and experience it.

I've always been interested in knowing a place the way it really is, the way the locals experience it, so tourist books and websites of the kind were never enough for me. This is why you won`t find too much information about the attractions of Amsterdam on my blog (there are plenty of other sources you can use), BUT you will have the chance to see behind the walls and step inside the people's houses, you will find your way through its neighbourhoods, street markets and you will be able to join the locals in their intimate cinemas, cafes and hidden places for relaxation.

And, because I am interested in knowing Amsterdam a bit more than that, from a cultural and historic perspective, from time to time I am also writing on this kind of topics.

If you are one of those people who like to see how people really live in the cities you visit or keep close to your heart, then you are in the right place. I hope you will enjoy the ride and that you will get an idea of what it feels like to be living in this part of the world!
