Amsterdam, The Netherlands

I'm a travel blogger based in Amsterdam. Travel is my escape; an opportunity to truly unwind, enjoy the different rhythm and to explore new places and cultures. It is also about meeting the locals and fellow travellers, and sharing views, ideas and experiences. Comfort is important to me during my travels. Where possible, I will always choose to stay at the better hotels and dine at the better restaurants. My travels are my 'velvet' escapes (velvetescape.com). My aim is to visit at least one new country each year. I tend to choose places with (or a combination of): - outstanding nature; - a colourful history; - a rich cultural heritage; - stunning architecture; and - a varied/delicious cuisine is always a plus! I wish all my fellow travellers a safe and wonderful journey and I hope my contributions help you find those places which are truly magical.
