“We really enjoyed staying at Mattias and Gert’s apartment in Amsterdam for 10 days. Communication was easy before the exchange and everything went smoothly. The very central location of their abode means that walking is ideal, which is what we did mainly. The museums are only a 20-min walk as is the 1912 Art Nouveau Zuiderbad swimming pool which I enjoyed going to thrice during our stay. Mattias was also an expert on advising on restaurants and we tried out two nearby which we also recommend: an Indonesian one (Aneka Rasa) for enjoying Rijstaffel and a Syrian one, (Sham), which we loved, and it incidentally employs refugees — we liked that concept. We have yet to try a couple of others he also suggested. Of course, you can also choose the delicious fresh herring with gherkins and onions near the flower market (just another short walk away). We also went on a day-trip to the Hague, and of course, since the flat is only a 10min walk to Centraal railway station, that was also easy. We were lucky to be in Amsterdam for King’s Day (27th April), and wandering around the city was a delight to enjoy the massive street-party (huge garage sales, festivities, music, fun and dance…). We also enjoyed partaking in meals at home: the early evening light and view over the canal is spectacular from the living room. All in all we had a wonderful time and we will be going back to Amsterdam — for sure!”
