Your Weekly Travel Zen: Amsterdam

amsterdam zen

This week's Moment of Travel Zen comes to us from Jessica Lacey of Ireland.

I used to live near Amsterdam so it is one of my favourite cities to revisit. Once you get off the beaten path a little bit, it is one of the most elegant and serene cities in Europe, with fantastic museums, and lovely little 'gezellig' cafes to watch the world cycle by in.

With its serene canals, vivid tulips, and charming Dutch architecture, Amsterdam is a city filled with zen.
