Excited about your first trip to Amsterdam? Me too! But obviously, a fun trip is a well-prepared one. From the do’s and dont’s, where to stay, and what to visit, these tips are all based on my personal experience during my trip to Amsterdam.
If you happen to be in Netherlands and are a sucker for cheese then this place is a must visit! Located in the charming fisherman village of Volendam, this place is heaven for cheese lovers. Hell, even a non-cheese lover like I am would still have a good time here.
Traveling to a new place is always an exciting experience, especially when the destination is far away. However, despite the excitement, traveling to far away destination comes with a little downside: the dreaded long haul flight, am I right? I bet nobody likes the idea of trapped inside a metal cylinder for >6 hours straight. Not only because it’s boring, but we basically have to sit through the entire journey, inhaling recycled air that could dehydrate our skin. No wonder we look like a zombie upon arrival. And worse, it could also do harm to your skin even a while after the journey. Something I learned the hard way.
After my first long haul flight (6 hours from Bali to Dubai plus 9 hours from Dubai to Birmingham) I noticed that my skin was not as excited to travel such a long journey as I was. It dehydrated so bad and started to break out the following days after I arrived in Birmingham. It could also be due to the transition to colder and drier air in England sure, but improper preparation before and during the flight also played a part. So, on my way back to Indonesia for holiday, I make sure pay a little more attention to my skin. Here’s my trick to staying fresh during long haul flight.
