First in Italy, until I moved to Amsterdam 6 years ago. I worked here as a web specialist for an online travel company until I decided to go freelance. Flemish theatre quarter — a small angle of the center where you can find some rest from the crowds. There are also some places outside the city that I love to visit when I need some relax, as the North Sea beaches or on the outskirts of the city along the Amstel river. The tiny canals near Nieuwmarkt, the view from the Kikkerbilsluis, the old mill with the IJ Brewery, the Amstel river from the Blauwbrug until Sarphatistraat, the Amstelveld and Reguliersgracht, the 9 Straatjes, the quaint canals and streets of Jordaan, the Saturday Market at the Noorderkerk and having an apple pie with whipped cream…. But also my favorite gay spots, like Getto or Prik, maybe meeting friends, have a laugh… Feel the city like we do.
