Waking up in Amsterdam

0 Permalink

Good morning folks – and happy Monday! Today is our last day in Amsterdam and we are leaving in the afternoon to go back to Düsseldorf. The time here has passed so far! We did some major sight seeing, went to museums and last night to the coldest bar in Amsterdam- the Ice Bar. I’ve tried to take as many photos as possible so stay tuned in the upcoming days. Oh – and it’s Christmas so soon, I cannot  wait!

Staying in this hotel has been a blast – I’m loving the fact that it’s so close to everything. We just had a lovely breakfast in one of the cutest cafés ever – went for a little walk, came back to the hotel Die Port van Cleve and now need to check-out. We want to go a little shop today, but I need to hold back, because sale will start soon. Knowing myself I’ll be shopping after Christmas, as well! So I need to quickly pack now, because my sister is already waiting for me! Stay tuned.

Christmas is coming to Zurich

0 Permalink

Hey everyone! It’s getting all Christmas-y finally in Zurich – I’m get all excited! Tonight the lights were all turned on and we had a long shopping night in Zurich. I actually didn’t know about it until lunch today – guess I’ve been too busy these past days – so I forgot to take my camera with me this morning. Work is keeping me absolutely busy currently, though: that is what makes it fun & interesting in the end. Anyway.. I was able to take a few semi-good photos with my iPhone so I thought I’d share those with you. Oh, and I was at an art vernissage today at the Vertes Moder Gallery – absolutely amazing! A great friend of mine actually works there so I got a tour around the gallery and took my dad with me.

Now I’m finally at home with my feet up on my couch, watching Criminal Minds; so scary haha! I cannot wait for the weekend – I’ll be sleeping as long as possible, seeing my best friend here in Zurich, another two over lunch and probably going out on Saturday. So much to do, yet so excited. What are you’re plans for the weekend?
