Adventures of An Aspiring Librarian

Amsterdam

on January 23, 2014

After leaving London, I was able to hop on a plane and visit Amsterdam and old friends. I didn’t know what to expect, but the city soon become one of my favorites in Europe. The atmosphere, the culture…everything about it is fun. It was really nice to see my old friends as well, and to have some local Dutchies show me around. Biking for the first time in 10 years was an experience, especially in the crazy rush hour sections of the city. Thankfully I soon got my bike legs back, even though the bike was a little too tall for me. 🙂

We also had a chance to go to the Rijesksmuseum, where we saw Van Gogh and other famous Dutch artists. One of my favorite parts of the Rijeskmuseum was the library, of course! It is an academic library focusing on art history.
