Experiencing Amsterdam like a Local

•••
For the last three months the Dutch capital city of Amsterdam has been my home. During this time I've mastered the cycling lanes, navigated my way around the canals and developed quite a taste for Bitterballen.

If you're a regular reader of Travelettes you'll know that we're great lovers of markets across the world (other articles here, here and here) so naturally, when I was in New York and offered the opportunity of a bit of shopping flea market style I was out the door as quicker than my heels could carry me (no literally, I changed into flats so I could get to [...]

Instead of the standard souvenirs I love to find unique local, possibly weird and cheap treasures. [...]
