I decided to sneak out of SteemFest and walk around on my own for a while in the area around Tobacco Theatre. I enjoyed listening to all the presentations and talking to all the awesome Steemers, Here is a picture from the panel debate. @spectral did a great job moderating the panel and they all created a wonderful conversation together.
Steemers mingling and connecting with eachother across all contries, cultures and differences.
I love walking around alone and getting lost in the streets of a new city, It is such a feeling of freedom to just walk around randomly with no goal or purpose. You see so many interesting things that you would never find otherwise.

Somehow I managed to stumble upon the book lover's heaven.
It was a place with many small book booths filled with used books about anything you can imagine. I love novels and philosophy and I found so many interesting books, I wanted to buy them all!
All kinds of obscure philosophy books are available here!
There are endless bookshelves all the way up to the ceiling. I think I could spend days and weeks just searching for truth, wisdom and beautiful, magical stories.
You can reach the bookshelves with a ladder.
I found this wonderful castle house!
There are so many temptations in the windows! Amsterdam is famous for the rich selection of the best cheeses in the world. I decided to visit one of the shops and they offered taste samples. It was divine! I bought some “Old Amsterdam” which was their best selling cheese and my personal favourite.
After all the cheese tasting I was a bit hungry and decided to eat some tomato soup at a random restaurant, it was super good and super cheap.
A lot of equipment for every need
