“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.” ~ Mark Twain
Amsterdam is one of those places which, if you have the frame of mind, the soul and the eagerness, you embrace and look back to. It is beautiful, relaxed, tolerant. It is fun and exciting. Its ways astonish. I cannot speak for others, but for me it felt liberating. It felt like home. It created a space in my mind where things work differently than in the rest of the world. It is a safe place, where I can go and remind myself that things can be peaceful.
