Amsterdam podcast! amsterdam is more than hookers and weed. in fact, only 10 percent of dutch people say they smoke marijuana. want a more authentic netherlands experience? follow the advice of audrey sykes, author of the amsterdam edition of the moon travel guides (don’t worry, we’ll still tell you the best places to smoke weed).
“there’s over 60 miles of canals running through the city,” audrey says, “and then you have these narrow houses. they’re all about three or four stories tall. they’re all made out of brick, but they all seem to have their funny little facades that are special to them and they almost seem to look like faces. a lot of the canal houses are leaning a little bit here and there, so it’s got this sort of charming cozy character to it.”
in addition to being a travel writer, audrey’s an american expat who took advantage of the dutch american friendship treaty to start stick together, an amsterdam-based agency that helps artists develop their careers. photo by @audtasticly
