Welcome to Amsterdam!

Meet the team

Kira (Dutch-Indonesian, owner/manager)

Background: I like my lunch to be served with a smile, the way I used to do it myself as a hotelier & event manager for years. On this blog I share with you my favourite Amsterdam places. I am not part of the Amsterdam tourist desk and everything written on this website is merely my opinion based on personal experiences.

Loves: Sushi & Chardonnay

Fav Amsterdam place: on the canals, on a private boat with friends on a sunny day.



Angelica (Italian, kids in amsterdam author)

Background: I am a MUM of two active boys (6 and 1 y.o.) and one princess (4 y.o.). I am a curious, outgoing and enthusiastic. My children are born and raised in Amsterdam and together we are exploring this great country. Via this blog I share with you our fun discoveries, from city playgrounds to where to go on a rainy day. You can't help but love this family-friendly city!

Loves: colours, smiles and ...good food!

Fav Amsterdam past time: skating on the frozen amsterdam canals in the winter.

Alex (Ukrainian, fashion & style author)

Background: During my career as a law practitioner, I expressed her passion for fashion via my blog (in Russian) and by publishing articles for online fashion magazines. I came to realize that for me making the world a better place is not by preparing investment contracts, but by helping people to embrace their individual beauty. This sparked my career move to become an certified image consultant and professional stylist. I work with clients from different cultural and professional backgrounds who seek style advice. 

Loves: shoes

Fav Amsterdam place: vintage shops
