weekending, amsterdam style
with our short 6 months in amsterdam and traveling on so many weekends,
i haven’t felt quite like we actually live here. that has started to change where
i know the city well now and it does feel like a kind of “home” when i return
from a trip. i always feel settled into a place when chase and i get into a
weekend routine in that place. this has been accomplished in amsterdam
for us! on a normal saturday, we have started to stop by our favorite
breakfast spot: yoghurt barn…then go on a run along the canals, take a
sauna at our favorite spot (becoming full-on european with that :) .. see
a new museum or sight, and discover something new since we have a
limited time left here! a few snaps from this weekend in the city::
the best breakfast at yoghurt barn ^^ i actually really want to open a franchise
of this idea in california, because i feel like it would do so well! it’s like
a froyo bar but with actual yogurt + all of the healthiest toppings.
we’re doing our best to fit in some day trips around the netherlands.
there are so many darling dutch towns nearby that we’ve loved.
we’ve explored a few with our friends gabby & jordan, and went
to this tiny little modern town of zandaam for some shopping ^^
it was the prettiest blue sky day, although still chilly.
we made it back to amsterdam in time to see a unique museum
we’ve wanted to visit ^^ the tiny houseboat museum, on a houseboat!
it was a fun one and i’ll talk more about it in my amsterdam museum guide.
from here on out we don’t have too many amsterdam weekends left just the two of us…
i am in russia next week, then we have family visitors, head to prague with them, have
friend visitors, then we head off on a babymoon for most of april before we head back!
that makes me sad but so excited for all that’s ahead. i’m glad we soaked this one up!
