Yay people!!!!! I'm moving in less than a month!!! :D After a fairly short yet frantic search I stumbled across the most lovely apartment in an amazing neighborhood in Amersfoort: green, calm, and yet a 10 minute bike ride from the city centre. It was absolutely perfect so I closed the deal as quickly as I could :)
I didn't really know the rest of Amersfoort very well, so me and a friend did some exploring the other day. The city centre is amazing, with lovely shops, restaurants and pretty canals. I especially loved all the old houses, with their beautiful roofs and quirky details :) Then after a nice steaming bowl of 'snert' we walked to my new home, and suddenly we felt we were walking through a forest (which we kind of were ;)
I've always loved cities where I can go from busy to green in under 15 minutes, so I think me and my new hometown will get along great :) Amersfoort, here I come!!
