After a day of museum hopping, it’s definitely time for an afternoon snack. Leaving the hustle and bustle of museumplein is also nice, and I found the perfect place to get away from it all, enjoy a relaxing atmosphere, and chomp on some fresh Dutch fries. If you are looking at the museums straight on, […]

Tourists for the Day

August 24, 2017

Ever since my visit in February, Amsterdam feels very much like “my place” to visit. I feel comfortable there and at home. During our summer trip, I took my family all around the city. We walked from one end to the other, and on this particular day, we took a fun boat ride down the […]

Every year I remember getting pinched by my best friend, Sydney, because every year I consistently forget to wear green. This year, I have a brand new green t-shirt that I was ready to throw on, thinking […]

Snow Day

February 20, 2017

I’ve heard it rarely snows in Amsterdam, and even more rarely ever sticks. So when both happened a few weekends ago I was beyond excited! I love the contrast of the city colors with the whiteness of the snow, and seeing all the action going on around town was crazy fun! I loved watching Charlotte […]

Hi Everyone! Long time no talk. Well, if you follow me on YouTube then we will have talked. But if you’re just a blog reader, sorry I’ve been MIA for a while. To be honest, I have had some mental health struggles the last few months and I needed to take a step back from […]

It’s almost Halloween! I am a self-professed full on lover of the holidays. This is my all-time favorite season and I just can’t get enough of it. But I’m not a huge fan of Halloween. Whoa, hold back the hate, please. Between the candy that makes me crazy and the scary costumes, I kind of […]
