back to the north

Today I am heading North once again. 
First to Amsterdam, then Durham and then to Hamburg. 
This summer, instead of going South like most do, I'm on the trend up North. 
Looking forward to seeing my family again in The Netherlands, learning a great deal in the UK and having a great weekend in Germany.

Live is good. 
I am extremely privileged
And very grateful.

I am lucky enough to head off to Europe in about 2 weeks again. 
The main destination will be Durham, UK, for a course at the university there. 
Of course, flying to Amsterdam is an almost inevitable part of getting to Europe from here (not that mind... a great way to keep in touch with family and friends) and what better way to end the trip than visiting my friends in Hamburg. Again - Northern Europe is the place for me this summer  - absolutely splendid.

Good morning and welcome to a beautiful Friday morning. 
Today I am off to Amsterdam with my mom and grandmother.
The ultimate girls trip I would say. 
It's quite extraordinary to be able to travel with both mom and grandmother, not many people have this privilege and I am extremely grateful it is possible. 
We'll be gone for a bit more than 2 weeks and I will try as much as possible to keep the blog up and running. 

Have a beautiful weekend. 
Smile loads. 

Love this

In September my mom, grandma and I will make our way over the pond to Amsterdam to welcome a new member of our family to the world. So exciting. She will be a few weeks old then and it seems like the perfect time to meet her. 

Of course in all of this I am happy to visit Amsterdam again, I haven't been there in two years. This is a place I called home for six years, where I met my amazing friends, where I fell in love with tulips and where I oddly enough never owned a bike (really, I have no idea how I managed that). 

Amsterdam is a beauty of a city (especially when the sun is shining). The canals, the flower shops and parks make it the picturesque destination many travelers love.This city is filled with history, art and cozy cafes. With secret rooftop terraces, hidden gardens and wonderful Saturday markets. 

I am sure it will be splendid, once again.
