my name is Charlotte Balder. I am living and working in Amsterdam and live in the Pijp area together with my boyfriend Jeroen. He runs a company in outdoor sports and I work as an editor for a Dutch interior/lifestyle magazine.
We both love to cook, sport (Jeroen), create (Charlotte), travel and enjoy cities as well as nature. I (almost) always lived in Amsterdam and I am happy to tell you everything I know. I would love to recommend on food/vintage/eco/farmer markets, coffee/cocktail/wine bars, local areas (less traveled by tourist), restaurants/bars/cafes/clubs/festivals and cultural must sees like Rijks Museum, Van Gogh Museum, FOAM, Red light district, canals (center), Jordaan/De Pijp/East/West neighborhood, nicest parks around the city, (canal)bike rental+tours, I Amsterdam-sign, etcetera etcetera ...
We welcomed many quests at our apartment and all of them were great. Its a pleasure meeting people from all over the world and hopefully help them a little to get around our great city.
