Best of Amsterdam

While lying on the grass of Museum Square in Amsterdam, I’m kind of thinking what I like most about Amsterdam. It’s hard to make a decision. Should it be Dam Square or the Royal Palace which I just saw? Is it the Keizersgracht with its famous canal houses? Maybe it’s the always incredible Rijksmuseum which I can see at this moment.

Or… wait! I think I know what I like most. I’m here, lying on the grass of Museum Square. Enjoying the sun, the view, doing nothing… Truth be told, it’s the best grass I’ve ever experienced. I could be here all day. Maybe this is what I like most about Amsterdam… the grass!
