Last February I went on a journey with my friends. Amsterdam. It was the 5th of a sunny February day. We all met at the airport. While having breakfast with brioches and cappuccino, we made jokes and smiled out of our sleepy faces.
The flight was very quick, some of us were sleeping, some listening to music, others were reading in group and having deep conversations. We landed in Eindhoven and we took a “taxi” (or we thought it was), which drove us to out destination, Amsterdam city.
As soon as we arrived, we went to check-in for our flat, but all our credit cards weren’t authorized to make a payment, so we lost quite some time to figure out what we had to do. When found the solution, we were starving, so with all the trolleys we went to a Steakhouse (lucky me, I’m vegetarian).
With a full belly and satisfied faces, still carrying our bags we went to visit the city. When we finally reached our apartment, we left all our things and went out again for a night tour and dinner. We returned again will a full belly and decided to go to bed “early”, but nothing went out as planned!
We found out that we had a mouse in the house and everyone freaked out. It was great! How strage that everyone was sitting on the couch relaxing and getting ready for the “Sweet dreams” and the second later “There’s a mouse!”. Screaming and jumping from chair to table, bed to couch, everything ended when the mouse finally decided to go to sleep and hid under the kitchen. We all went to sleep in the deep hours of the night, some of us never slept and some slept without carrying about anything (like me).
The next day I woke up early (together with the other morning people) and went for a Starbucks breakfast. We were all day on feet and walked around exploring Amsterdam’s architecture.
Our stops in this vacation:
- Art Street
- Sex museum
- Van Gogh’s museum
- Coffee shops
- Red light district
If you look carefully at the picture, you will notice that it wasn’t taken from the front (since there were too many people busy taking pictures), but actually taken from behind and then modified so it would look as if it was taken normally 😉
“Some tourists think Amsterdam is a city of sin, but in truth it is a city of freedom.
And in freedom, most people find sin.”
