Yesterday I went to Amsterdam again! I forgot you should never go on a Saturday though because damn.. so many people. Luckily we (my dad and I) weren't planning to take the main street but the way prettier streets with the so called 'grachten', like this:
It also helped that all the better shops and boutiques are located here, including one of my favorite shops ever: The Darling. They've always got the sweetest collection of clothes (scored a new dress that was on sale <3) and accesories and even better: the prettiest cupcakes! I didn't buy any but I couldn't resist taking some pictures.

Of course I also had to visit one of my favorite galleries around here: the ABC Treehouse. They had a beautiful exhibition called Heart On Stage

This was definitely my favorite piece:

I also had some very tasty tea. Green tea with passion fruit. The design of the teabags made it taste even better. So cute! (lol at my dad in the background). I also had a super delicious bread roll with tuna salad. I don't know why, but whenever I'm having lunch away from home I tend to go for a tuna sandwich.

Another reason why I love amsterdam is because of a shop selling products from the UK and USA, which means: Reese's Peanutbutter Cups!! I missed them so much.

I also saw a guy who looked exactly like Vincent Volaju of the Cowboy Bebop movie. Luckily there weren't any jack-o-lanterns and deadly viruses involved. I thought it was kinda funny that it started raining about half an hour after the encounter.

Then my dad bought a sucker, checked out an afro cow and then we went back home again. My feet are so sore x.x yet I had way too much of a good day to give a damn.


  1. it looks like a lovely place to go, doesn't it?

  2. @Alexandra it is! Especially if you look further than just the touristy stuff it can be pretty awesome.
