Last Goodbye from Madurodam

Madurodam is a tourist spot (inevitably) with miniature buildings of the important landmarks in Holland. This place is our last stop (well we went to Chinatown for dinner and then airport bright and early the next day) before we leave for Jakarta so I took all the pictures that I can! It's definitely a fun place to visit for the whole family to enjoy. As you can see from the pictures, the day was cloudy with small raindrops but it lasted for less than 5 minutes and nothing that my beanie couldn't handle!

PS. I bought 3 pretty necklaces all Made in Holland at the gift shop as souvenirs for my girls. The pendant is in a form of a tulip with colorful rhinestones. It wasn't expensive.. Around 15 euros so if you really love your girlfriends/sisters, it's a nice souvenir option :)

Alluring Amsterdam

I found a paragraph in John Green' The Fault In Our Star book that defines Amsterdam beautifully.

"Amsterdam is like the rings of a tree; it gets older as you get closer to the center"
It happened all at once : We exited the highway and there were the row houses of my imagination leaning precariously toward canals, ubiquitois bicycles, and coffeshops advertising LARGE SMOKING ROOM. We drove over a canal and from atop the bridge I could see dozens of houseboats moored along the water. It looked  nothing like America.
It looked like an old painting, but real--everything achingly idyllic in the morning light--and I thought about how wonderfully strange it would be to live in a place where almost everything had been built by the dead.


A set of pictures from Germany, Dusseldorf to be exact. That day was slightly cold so a leather jacket and a leather skirt are definitely appropriate. I did though, feel overdressed for the area considering most of them wearing light sweater and jeans.
I have the worst case of flu right now so I'm just going to keep this post short and sweet.
Wishing all of you a healthy midweek!
