Joanna is from London and runs her own business (importing children's Micro scooters to the Netherlands). MP is from Amsterdam and is a professional pianist. In 2006 we bought our house from an old lady who had lived there for 38 years. We completely renovated it and now live with our two young daughters in the bottom half of the house, renting out the separate apartment in the top half. We love Amsterdam! We can tip you off about local hangouts that you have to live here to know about and all the highlights that you really ought to see. This is the best area of the city to live in, that's why we picked it! Everything we need is right on our doorstep, we hardly ever have to leave our 'hood. You'll love it here too!
