UGH! I wished this video was out before I left for Amsterdam! OH well, I guess that means I have to go back and check out these places, right? LOL

soniastravels says:

You must 😉

Collins Crapo says:

I have considered visiting Amsterdam someday, as it’s the birthplace of actress Famke Janssen. Well, actually it’s a town south of there named Amstelveen, but the big city is where the tourism is. The thought of being surrounded by tulips & windmills also intrigues me. The Rembrandt museum & such may be a li’l pricey, but a huge public library? Wow (too bad I don’t know much Dutch)!

soniastravels says:

Would love to know how it goes..

Latina Jay says:

how much do you tip in Amsterdam coffee shops

Drone06 says:

Its my birthday, will you come to the library with me and watch a movie maybe get something to eat at the cafe too?

soniastravels says:

Would love to visit Norway! Maybe on our next trip to Europe. Thanks for your support!

WarryWally Ferdinandus says:

Hi Sonia,
Probably next time, you’ll have to visit MAASTRICHT, the capital city of Holland’s southern province LIMBURG. People here are very friendly and exuberant. Regards.

Janneke Wagner says:

What you were saying about the library is so true! And guess where I am indeed spending almost every sunday.. 🙂
Love your videos, Sonia!

GoodEyesight3000 says:

im sorry you seem a nice girl. but this video is ludicrous. The opening music, what was that? You look more like a police officer in demeanour than a ‘fun’ person and ok you have a nice butt but you seriously overdid walks in front of the camera. And standing in front of the portraits killed it for me.

Rajith Atapattu says:

wtf, she is crazy… In Amsterdam everyone goes to be naughty, talking about pictures, museums, damn crazy.. No body goes for just to see museums, there are other places if you want to be in a Library.. crazy tbh

Fireside Flannel says:

Visitin Bruges and Amsterdam in a week and a half from Canada, and by far the place that I am most excited to visit is Eye Film Institute.

Richard Longmore says:

Great video I go to amsterdam every year and love the vibe there

TheWeddingDoctor says:

Great tips, and delivered by a GORGEOUS host…it’s like flying first class for travel tips!
Awesome! (Great production value as well. Love to find out about what you’re doing for in studio production; lighting, camera, editing system)
You rock!

Stain0 says:

So funny to see all those dutch words (my native language, as a belgian) I love Amsterdam… but you did visit the Anne Frank Huis did you?

RedroomStudios says:

this video brought a smile to my face! you did a good job of selecting places that not many would visit on their own outside of the MuseumPlein… my favourite thing to do is sit outside at one of the open air cafes, enjoy a light meal and a beer while watching the world go by. no place is quite as entertaining and interactive as the streets of Amsterdam! longing to go back… and never return!

soniastravels says:

You must! 🙂 Thanks for your support-

Jonathan Adler says:

so cool

christopher says:

Who goes to a library on vacation? Yeah you can hang out where the museums are all located and watch the hordes go into them but it’s boring as hell. Spend the money and go inside.

soniastravels says:

Thanks for the feedback!

soniastravels says:

Thanks for the kind words!

Anzhelika Chumak says:

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
