January was my fifth month of Amsterdam Insights (see the September, October, November and December round ups). This month was a little busy, non-Amsterdam Insights speaking: I had to complete a month-long Research Practice Seminar before my master program commences in February, and I was busy finishing my internship at Time Out Amsterdam, the magazine… It was a lot. BUT I was still able to visit a few new places that I’ve been happy to share with you here. Here’s a round up of January…
Featured above are photographs from the following posts…
- Books at Mendo (Berenstraat 11) featured in this recent in 5 post;
- The lovely garden of the photography museum Huis Marseille (Keizersgracht 401);
- A coffee and a slice of cake at Tearoom Lanskroon (Singel 385), across the canal from the lunch cafe Singel 404 (Singel 404);
- An exhibition worth traveling to The Hague for, ‘Paris: City of Modern Art‘ at the Gemeetenmuseum Den Haag;
- Browsing the beautiful collection of products, home deco and furniture at the store Raw Materials (Rozengracht 231);
- Lovely red, whites and blues in this recent in 5;
- An afternoon coffee at Cafe de Pels (Huidenstraat 25);
- The wonderful Two For Joy Coffee Roasters (Frederiksplein 29), also from this recent in 5 post;
- A peak inside a real canal house, the Museum Van Loon (Keizersgracht 672) of the former Van Loon family (aka Willem Van Loon was cofounder of the Dutch East Indies Company back in 1602);
- And it SNOWED in Amsterdam last week, just a sprinkle but enough to make up for the lack of ‘winter’ this year.
Next month there will sure to be more coffee dates in warm cafes, museum visits (oh, there are so many more in Amsterdam!), new neighborhoods (‘Oud Zuid,’ anyone?) and weekend strolls along the canals.
