Amsterdam. Who hasn’t heard stories of canals, red lights and joints? But Amsterdam is so much more than that!
It is incredibly easy to find your way around the city. Especially in the Centrum, all you have to do is follow the Grachten, the small canals that run in rings from the Amstel and the IJ all around the city centre. To find your way back, you just need to remember how often you crossed the water.
Amsterdam is full of bicycles and cyclists do have right of way. Mind you, a lot of the streets in the old town are cobblestoned, but riding your bike along the shore of the Grachten will make you feel like a native in no time.
It was about this time last year, when I first heard of NaNoWriMo.
NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month, and the month in question is November. The idea behind it is simple: Write (or try to write) 50,000 words of the first draft of a novel within the 30 days of November.
