There’s a strong chance these photos will make you want to jump on the next plane to Amsterdam.

I visited Amsterdam at the beginning of my year-long solo journey around the world. I first flew to London and after a week in one of my favourite cities, I thought it was time to go somewhere new. So before I knew it I was on the train, bound for Amsterdam for the very first time.

The Fault in Our Stars (some of which is filmed and set in Amsterdam) was just about to be released on film and there was a lot of buzz about my visit to Amsterdam, particularly on instagram.

But despite all this I was sceptical.

Would I really enjoy it that much? Hadn’t everyone been to Amsterdam? What was there really to uncover or discover?

But its true, Amsterdam steals hearts.

These are some of my favourite photos I took from my time in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Needless to say I’ll be back.

    I love these pictures, I’m Dutch and I live in Amsterdam and it’s fun to see the city through somebody else’s eyes. To al people traveling alone, Amsterdam is a super save city, mind your stuff like always, but everybody(seriously everybody) speaks English.

    I visited Amsterdam for the first time in September and was amazed, no FLOORED, by how incredibly beautiful it is. I love the architecture of the row houses along the western canals. In a way, it reminded me of the canal in Georgetown in Washington, D.C. (my hometown) — but prettier.

    I was just in Amsterdam for a few days during fall break! The changing leaves over the canal were breath taking! Not to mention, those pancakes!!
    I wrote about it here..

    Great pics Brooke- Amsterdam is my favourite city! Have you seen ‘The Fault In Our Stars’? It shows Amsterdam in such a romantic light, made me so happy to see a film show it in the way I see it (rather than the seedy place many people assume it is!). You should watch it 🙂 but be prepared to cry- A LOT! Sarah @girlsinpolkadots xxx

    I’ve been to Amsterdam twice now and it is probably one of my favourite cities. I’ve always had the most wonderful holidays there, filled with culture, great food and interesting new people. I loved your photos – they evoked a great feeling of nostalgia in me and reminded me that this is one of those places that I will always be fond of and long to revisit
