a room with a view.


hello! and greetings from amsterdam. i wrote this yesterday before leaving for roma, but i had to share my apartment smack dab on the canal in amsterdam, located in the charming neighborhood of jordaan full of great shopping and cafes. it was just so lovely. five flights up an incredibly narrow staircase, and the last bit more like a ladder to a tree fort — i landed up here, with an amazing view of the canal below. awash in white, with just about the coziest bed i’ve ever slept in, i almost did want to leave to head out an explore. but here it is – everything you ever wanted from a room with a view.

    We recently stayed in an Airbnb house in Amsterdam too – also fantastic if anyone is looking for a second option. http://www.littleobservationist.com/2013/09/14/airbnb-art-house-in-amsterdam/ But this place looks amazing!
