Sport, Music, Cooking, Coffee
I stayed at Joel's lovely, elegant flat for several months and it was a pleasure. Near to the Vondelpark as well as good dining and cafes on Amstelveensweg (1 block away), there was plenty to do within walking distance--and being that close to the park is amazing. The flat itself is truly gorgeous as well as spacious, with a great kitchen in which to cook (Joel himself is a chef, and it shows...) Joel's family is around to help out if anything goes wrong, and they are also extremely friendly. Lastly, Amsterdam is known for being dark and rainy much of the year, which is true, but somehow Joel's apartment seemed to maximize all possible sunlight--definitely the brightest place I've ever stayed in Amsterdam!
