🌍✨ “Amsterdam is the noise of the bicycle wheels” ✨🌍 Serena’s story!

I have so many things to tell you about Amsterdam, but I don’t know where to start.

If you don’t know Amsterdam these are the first things that people think about, but they aren’t the only things that this city offers.

Why Amsterdam? Everybody asks this question but I don’t really have an answer. I had never visited The Netherlands before moving here. I just packed my stuff and caught my flight. I can say for sure that it is not the weed, the legalized drugs and the crazy life that brought me here. I came to Amsterdam to find myself, to prove myself that I could build a new life in a new place, with new people; to demonstrate that I am free to be myself and to mold my own life the way I like the most.
