P1080274x Welcome to Amsterdamian!

My name is Dana and this is my playground. I am a Romanian living in Amsterdam since 2010, passionate about the city and everything it has to offer. On this website, I share my discoveries, experiences and thoughts with everyone who’s interested in Amsterdam, the Netherlands or travel in general. The articles are diverse and illustrated with pictures, because I like to capture each moment in a photograph (or a few).



If you want to find out more about me, you can read an interview on the Angloinfo blog or one of my articles that was featured on 

I don’t always like talking about which camera I use, as I don’t aim for technical perfection and I believe a picture can be great regardless of the gear used to capture it — more important is what it communicates. Nevertheless, I know many people are curious about it, so let’s just get it out of the way: I currently use an Olympus Pen F camera (I had a Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 until 2017), with three interchangeable lenses (the standard kit zoom lens, a 20mm lens and a portrait lens).

If you want to use my photos, you can find some of them for free in my Unsplash collection. You can also book a photo session with me or buy prints or products on Society6. If you are interested in other pictures which are not available through these websites, please contact me.
