The Cheese Museum Amsterdam

The time has arrived for me to write about my Amsterdam trip highlight – The Cheese Museum.

Before heading to the Anne Frank museum we did some cheese tasting. Did you know that Dutch cheese has more than 600 years long tradition and the names of different sorts of cheese are often taken from different cities in the Netherlands – Gouda, Edam, Leerdammer, Leyden, Maaslander, Maasdam, etc?

The cheese museum is a shop with also an exhibition part and where the staff wears traditional Dutch clothes. We tasted the different varieties of traditional Dutch Gouda cheese and then we visited the Gouda cheese museum where there were educational videos and pictures about the history and the production of Dutch cheese.

There is also a photo booth where we dressed up as Dutch farmers and took a picture, well, a few.

So if you’re a big fan of cheese and you are going to the Anne Frank museum, you should definitely visit the cheese museum which is right across the street. Just a heads up! The admission is free of charge, but you’ll probably end up buying a lot of cheese!

Italy in Amsterdam

I have a never ending obsession for Italian cuisine, so it doesn’t matter the country I visit, I tend to always end up trying at least one Italian restaurant. And there’s nothing wrong with that. Al contrario!

So on our first day in Amsterdam, we decided to have dinner at Piadina Bar and here’s our experience:

The location is very convenient since it’s so close to the metro station and you know, it’s Amsterdam, everything is a walk away! (Unless it’s raining). The service was excellent, the staff is very friendly and quick. And when it comes to food…

I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves, but please keep in mind that the pizzas are even more delicious than what they look like. There’s no fair way to describe them, you should just give them a try. We’ve ordered

We’ve also done some Italian beer tasting which was one of the best decisions of this trip.

My mom also asked to mention in this review their great music selection. She spent pretty much of her time singing or dancing without leaving her place. Oh well, moms.

3 Pain Relief Techniques that Really Work

Spending eight hours sat down at a desk and a few more driving around made me start suffering from back pain. I think we all go through this because of our routines, bad postures, etc. And usually, our friends, colleagues and family members even make fun of it saying things like “You’re getting old”.

The truth is, this is something more serious than you think and the earlier you treat this problem the easier it will be in your future to avoid these type of pains. So here are 3 things that helped me with my lower back pain:

Yoga – stretching exercises can really help waking up all parts of our body and to make sure these are in shape and pain-free. If you combine these exercises with breathing techniques you’ll feel relaxed and you’ll see a great improvement in your posture.

Good posture – make sure your chair, either at work, school or wherever you spent most of your time, is in the right position for your weight. You can always add a cushion if it makes you feel more comfortable, this will help you keep a good posture while sitting down. Also make sure you stand up at least every hour, even if it’s to go make yourself a coffee or to just stretch your muscles. Our bodies sometimes need to be awakened.

Natural pain relief products – After reading about Sanare Smart CBD products with natural ingredients that help with pain relief, I decided to give them a try.  They produce topical lotions, tinctures, pet products, soaps, sunscreen and more, all infused with CBD, terpenes, and essential oils to help with pain. The truth is I’ve been doing so much better that sometimes I get up from my chair after having sat down for a long time and I expect to feel some pain and really surprises me when I don’t. My husband is also using these after his football matches when he comes home with any small injury and after a few hours, the pain is gone.

These are the products I’ve been using: The CBD original Advanced Tropical Pain Relief and the California Orange Tincture.
