DAY 3

Today we headed out to an island called NDSM, a short 15 minute ferry ride from the Central Station. ‘NDSM’ is a neighborhood in the Amsterdam-Noord borough of Amsterdam, Netherlands built on and using the industrial structures on the former land of the Nederlandsche Dok en Scheepsbouw Maatschappij (NDSM) shipbuilding company. It is an “edgy arts community with a post-apocalyptic vibe” according to Lonely Planet. There are apartments, headquarters of companies like Red Bull and MTV, eating, drinking, a hotels including one built in a crane and one on a ship (BOTEL).A few shots along the way:
