"The Sauna Deco is an iconic wellness space in Amsterdam. It’s quite old school, but really special because it has all this art deco design inside. You have all these different temperature saunas in this communal space and you've got to be totally nude — which of course was a shock when I first moved to Amsterdam, but you kind of get used to it and get over yourself."

"Vondelpark is the biggest, most central park Amsterdam and it’s really worth going. It’s got a very historical relevance with the counterculture movement in the 60s and 70s — everyone would congregate and take mushrooms. There are flower gardens and a cafe in the middle called the Blue Tea Room, which looks like a UFO. You can go in there, get some fresh mint tea and hang out."

"The EYE Museum is a relatively new space across a body of water called the River IJ. It’s a really amazing film museum and cinema right on the water and has a really funky, weird architectural design. You can go there to watch movies but they also have film festivals and exhibitions."
