What You Could Get in Amsterdam for $10 – Roam Around the City on a Budget

After we covered Haarlem a couple of months ago, I’m so glad that I’ve finally got a chance to cover the capital city of the Netherlands: Amsterdam!

Coming from Indonesia, the country that was formerly known as the Dutch Indies, Amsterdam has become one of the major holiday destinations for Indonesians. And even if you’re not from Indonesia like I am, Amsterdam is still one of the most popular cities to visit in Europe.

From their well-known canals to even the infamous red district, Amsterdam has a lot of reasons why it should be listed in your next travel destination.

Thanks to Laura of Laura No Esta, we’ll be covering the city on this week’s $10 series! 😉

Skrill: Transfer Money Internationally From Indonesia, Hassle-Free!

In case you don’t know yet, not so long after I had a collaboration with Shi Hui for the post on Indonesian guys vs Singaporean guys, who knows that I end up dating the latter to prove the difference on my own?!

Well, if there’s any obvious difference between dating my current boyfriend and the previous ones, it’s actually the transparency about my vulnerability. The financial aspect, no matter how hard it is to admit it, is one of them.

I really want to act like I’m a strong, independent woman. But then there are times when I’m short on cash, especially a couple of months ago when my work was a little slower than usual. Last month, I had to borrow some money from my boyfriend.

If you don’t know me, you may think that shit like that occasionally happens in life. But if you know me personally, I suppose you know how embarrassing it could be for me. But hey, work has been quite busy again lately and I’ve paid back the money he loaned me. And it was my first time transferring money internationally from Indonesia. 🙂

I figured it might be helpful if I could write something about it. And how I’ve found a very helpful platform to help me transferring money overseas from Indonesia, hassle-free. And not just from Indonesia, as Skrill provides international money transfer services from many other countries too.
