Remember last year when I met up with O after his Germany business trip and we went to Brussels and Antwerp? Well I am doing it again this year, except we are going to Amsterdam! Our trip is planned for mid March.
Its exciting cuz we get to travel and see art and hang out and have adventure, but I also love it for two big reasons. 1. I get to fly alone across the atlantic, thats pretty fun. For some reason I always like the feeling of traveling alone, I did it a lot when I was younger and living in Spain, like a bajilion years ago. I get into major efficiency mode and I love just being in my own head, listening to music, observing. Its like an adventure just getting myself where I am supposed to be, I can be a bit absentminded (everyone in my family is rolling their eyes right now). Last year I just slept the whole trip. Not real sleep, airplane sleep. You know, shitty sleep.
Check out those ceilings! Its a cute little attic apartment, how cozy is it!
I want to do some cycling, and I am surprising O with dinner here (don't worry, he never reads my blog, do you O?) I also want to have some amazing food, and cheese and shop, and walk, and look at flowers and go on a boat and climb things, and look at art and have coffee and people watch and stroll and lay around on the grass on a sunny day and have a picnic and generally enjoy that totally in-the-moment time that you seem to get on vacation more than any other time. You know what I mean?
Ok, any suggestions? Things I must do? Places we must eat? A particular pair of boobs to find in the red light district? I have already been warned about the spontaneous singing in bars, which honestly sounds totally amazing. Like I would feel like I was in that part of Beauty and the Beast when the whole village sings. Right? Yes damnit, agree with me.
