Finally, we are able to travel again. This really feels like a breath of fresh air for me. I am that type of person who has to be able to travel in order to relax. I don’t need to go to a country far away, I just need to in a different surrounding, with different people who have a different culture. Only when I get taken out of my normal surrounding, I can really relax. Therefore, the pas 2 years have been quite stressful to me. However, since a couple of months, we are finally able to travel again. A few weeks ago, I was brainstorming on where to go. The first city that popped into my head was Amsterdam. I’ve always wanted to go to Amsterdam. I love diversity, feeling free to express myself, and therefore Amsterdam felt like a natural fit. But apart from that, I don’t know much about the city. So when I landed at Schiphol Airport, it suddenly dawned on me that I did not know what to do. So I asked the locals.
Feeling truly Dutch
By asking the locals on what to do, you can get a taste of what it really is like to live in Amsterdam. At first, I was planning on going to the Dam Square, to visit Madam Tussaud’s, and stuff like that. But the locals told me that his was far too touristy. I needed to go to the Moco Museum. The Moco Museum Amsterdam is an amazing combination of contemporary and classical artworks. They are also displayed very creatively and freely in a way that you can experience art. It all fits very well with the relaxed and free feeling of Amsterdam.
Going there by bike
The Dutch do everything by bike. So the locals said that I should go to the Moco Museum by bike as well. I have to admit that it was really fun. Cycling past the Rijksmuseum, alongside the canals and through the many parks to the Moco Museum already was very nice. Then came the amazing experience I had at this museum, and I suddenly felt like a real Dutch person. Whenever you are in Amsterdam, I would highly recommend you to visit the Moco Museum. Especially if you don’t want to be that typical tourist. Do what I do: ask the locals. You will be amazed of the fun adventures you are going to have.
