amsterdam, the netherlands: good vibes

I love the love that Amsterdam radiates. From the canals to the parks to the museums to the cute neighborhood spots, there is so much joy, beauty and positivity. I stumbled into a cheese museum on my first day and naturally tasted some cheese. The guy working there said "have you been here before?" (I hadn't...)- "you just ooze a love of cheese!" (Yes, yes I do). Love.

Sustainability Highlight: CYCLING!!!

 My first night in Amsterdam, my friend, Erin and I went to dinner. On our way from a music performance to grab pizza, she let me walk, ride and park the bike just like a local! The next day, I did the same as I toured around the city (and proceeded to chase this sunset).  I'm so used to seeing piles and piles of cars and it was so refreshing to see so many bikes! There are over 800K bikes in the city :O. SO environmentally friendly and a great way to reduce the footprint. The city has done an incredible job making it easy, efficient and incentivized to cycle around. My favorite part of the city!

The best energy (pun not intended at first):

From left:

1. "What unites human beings is a huge and wonderful heart." I love these people! As seen in an apartment building in De Pijp 2. "BE YOU!" five times. yes. yes. yes. yes. yes. Canal love. 3. Electric cars are everywhere! If it's not a bike, it's charging. 4. Street sign for peace sign! What a lovely message.
