I’m Jessie, twenty-two and from Leeds.

After graduating, like a lot of people, I was left with a great degree but virtually no idea what I wanted to do with my life. All of a sudden you’re left to make major life decisions, after spending the last three years in a bubble, protected by a large group of friends and the expectation that the experience will never end.

Then that bubble bursts, and you’re left contemplating what adulthood even is and why university still hadn’t taught you the right portion size of pasta.

So I decided that the best thing to do was to throw myself in the deep end and move to a different country. I managed to get myself a job based in one of Europe’s most magical cities, Amsterdam, where I work in Marketing. Then I started this blog as a way of talking about why Amsterdam is so much more than the Red Light District and Coffeeshops. It’s a city of festivals, a proud cycling history and the tallest men in the world.

Check out all the great things you can do here! Thanks for reading.
