Tulips & Theatre; My first week in Amsterdam

I’ve barely been here a week, and already there is so much happening in Amsterdam! This week was the celebration of King’s Day (Koningsdag), formerly known as Queen’s Day. It’s a street festival that happens in the downtown core, all day and night. The population doubles overnight as people dressed in orange come from all over to celebrate. Some photos from the festivities…

I also went to check out the famous Keukenhof! A 79 acre garden, with over 7 million bulbs in bloom. It is so gorgeous and a true work of art.

From garden art to theatre, I had the opportunity to go view Yasmina Reza’s “Art” from Orange Tea Theatre, in Amsterdam. It was thought provoking, real and hilarious all in one. A plot starting from one friends art purchase…

A Canadian in Amsterdam!

It’s official, I am now in AMSTERDAM!

I have landed and am now in the process of getting settled in. During this crazy exciting adventure I plan on blogging more frequently so that you can share this experience with me. I will also continue my pursuit of acting while in Amsterdam, so that should provide some interesting situations for me to share with you! So far I have researched local theatre companies and agencies, have been making contacts, and will be attending my first English speaking theatre show this weekend! If you have any suggestions of places to go and check out, let me know!!!

 Until then stay tuned and enjoy the ride with me! (Speaking of ride, check out my fancy transit pass. You get to use your own photo so… of course it’s a headshot)
