Anne grew up in a small town in the Southern part of the Netherlands. She moved to Nijmegen in 2013, to start her bachelors in Cultural Anthropology. Whereas she always loved Nijmegen, it was time for her to seek new adventures. Which place better for that then the capital: Amsterdam! In Amsterdam she is now doing her masters specializing in Latin America studies.
Anne has always been fascinated by history and its play in the daily life, therefore her aim is to find hidden treasures to share in her tours. Besides this she loves her morning coffees and the good city vibes of Amsterdam, which is a beautiful historical city where she can wander the streets for days and still discover amazing spots.

The Northern part of Amsterdam is being transformed in a second centre, this is the place you want to hang out. Especially since there is a swing, the ´A´DAM LOOKOUT´ that gives you a breath-taking view over the whole city. It´s called ´Over the Edge´ and it’s the highest European swing, since the swing is located on the A´dam Tower! A great way to get some fresh air!
