Here I am, back with the first batch of pictures from my trip to Amsterdam. As I said before, Anna and I decided spontaneously to visit our friend and former housemate Millie from Bristol, wo moved to Amsterdam for studying with Erasmus. It’s been a year that we haven’t seen us, from the point that Anna and I left England to swap it for Portugal. In addition, I’ve never been to Amsterdam before (at least I can’t remember) and was so curious ever since Anna started to enthuse about it about 2,5 years ago!
So here we were, in midst of that vibrant city, sourrounded by tons of lovely (coffee) shops, flowers, stunning interiors, open windows, vintage goodness etc etc! Every detail in the centre is just so heartwarming and very obviously made with love! So have a look at the pictures, more are yet to come 🙂
Life got upgraded yesterday; I bought myself a new lens, which is barely larger than the lid of a marmalade jar! It’s the Panasonic Lumix 20mm/f1.7 Pancake (did I hear pancake??) lens which is a prime lens and, obviously, extremely light-sensitive with it’s wide aperture!
I got it through eBay-kleinanzeigen.de which I currently am obsessed with! It’s so light that I am able to carry my fairly big Lumix GH3 in my purse all day! A dream!
So yesterday my sister and I went to a furniture shop to get me a mattress and pillow, then we wanted to collect a chair (via eBay again) but it didn’t fit my need. So we went to my new flatshare and put up my bed, had chinese take-away and cider and just chilled on the floor in that empty flat… real cozy, honestly 😀
The next days are all about moving in and moving stuff, so… weird. Anytime I moved in the last 2 years (abroad) I didn’t have too much stuff and no furniture. But I am so so so lucky and grateful to have those glorious people around who help me day in and out! Like in general… I am fricking thankful for my family and friends. They give me so much and deserve all my love ❤
We arrived- finally! 25 hours on the road and ferry, 5 passengers with lots of food and even more baggage. We slept in our sleeping bags in a corner of a hallway on the ferry, which brought us over to Sweden over night 🙂 it’s fresh and both sunny and rainy here, but the air is so crisp and awesome, it’s just fantastic 😀 I’m gonna sleep well tonight, I wish the same to you too ❤
