“The first time I heard about Amsterdam was in primary school in Croatia. Back then, I couldn’t really form a clear picture of the city and never could have imagined living there. However, there's nothing you won't do for love and I ended up accompanying my boyfriend to Amsterdam in September 2015. He started on his Master’s degree while I looked for a job.

It wasn't easy, and the weather didn’t help at all. At first it was pouring with rain all the time. I also can't say I love Amsterdam. I don't think it's because of the city itself, it's just very frustrating when you can't find a job. Because of this, I miss Croatia so much more, especially because I really enjoyed my job there.

Luckily for me, I can really begin to explore the city now, as I have finally found myself a new job! I really like going to the Pijp and I love the Amstel.”
