The first time I visited Amsterdam, Alex invited me to join one of his street art tours and review it on the blog. We became friends and, when I moved to Amsterdam, he was the first person I reached out to. Eventually, we also got to work together -albeit shortly- since Alex is now in charge of the guided tours of the street art museum STRAAT, where I worked during the 2 years leading towards the opening.
Thanks to Alex (Alltournative) for this lovely walk around his neighbourhood!
