She says ‘Hi, I’m Jess and I love to travel. My parents were travelers since before I was born. Even in the womb, I was able to travel all over the place! Boy, did things NOT change as I grew older! Knowing there’s more to the world than the bubble I live in made me want to travel even further. Traveling is my drug and I’m addicted. (Please, no intervention!)’

You’ve been to the Amsterdam Film Festival and had a blast

Every year, the Amsterdam Film Festival showcases many genres of films from 90 different countries. This festival is award based and aims to provide the highest recognition in multiple competitions. These films are not for the public to be screened, unlike many film festivals.

If you’d still like to watch award winning films from the 2014 festival, check out titles such as, “Of Men and War”, “The Priest with Two Guns”, and “Stars Can Wait A Lifetime”; some which you may be able to find on Netflix, but you might have to unblock it first.

There is a screenplay competition in which they seek the most unique screenplay with the best quality. They search for the one artist who has created and refined their own voice within writing.

You’ve been to the Getto and it wasn’t an awful experience – and have chowed down on a burger named after a drag queen

The word “ghetto” here and “Getto” there are two completely different meanings despite the same pronunciation. In Amsterdam, the Getto is a bar that serves burgers, good drinks and has an edgy, young vibe.

Each burger is specifically named after a drag queen and allows a lovely space for the LGBT community to feel comfortable in. It’s not a “gay bar”, it’s a bar that accepts everyone, no matter what. This award-winning restaurant does have gay days and glam variety shows, though!
