Best of June: these were the 5 X most read articles of the month

29 June 2017

PSST… these were the most populair articles of June

June, you were good! We were able to swim, eat a lot of ice cream, we needed to buy a raincoat and often made a big mistake with our clothing, but June you were good! The past month we’ve shared a lot with you and if you missed it, at the end of the month you can read the ‘best of June’ in the most read articles here. Look at it as a list as, for example, new restaurants for inspiration for your next dinner date with your friend or lover, but also trend articles and inspiration for new events.

Rooftops in Amsterdam: The last month we spent a lot of hours in the sun, and most of them on a rooftop. It’s the perfect place to enjoy the sun, a glass of wine and a beautiful view over Amsterdam. Check our favourite rooftop bars in Amsterdam to hopefully visit again soon.
