Mercatorplein, Berlage, Amsterdamse school, Baarsjes, Jordaan, Kinkerbuurt, Ten Kate markt, Ruigoord, Kennemerduinen

I live in Amsterdam-West on the edge of the Jordaan. After all my wanderings, I decided to choose my new home in this city - mainly because of its international and liberal character. I cycle to the cozy Ten Cate market in the Kinkerbuurt, within 5 minutes in the Vondelpark or on the Leidseplein. A little further lies the Westerpark or the Amsterdamse Bos. I used to live in the Baarsjes near the Mercatorplein, where there are fewer tourists, who now have to stow this city in large numbers.
