Sorry about the two month absence, guys (and by “guys” I mean “three people who actually read this”). Writing a blog is a lot of work, and sometimes I feel like I need a break. I recently started a new full time job, and being back in the corporate world has forced me to spend large chunks of free time relearning grammar and vocabulary (allegedly “calendar” and “impact” are now verbs, but “ask” is a noun. I digress). I have also been opting for studying French instead of spending hours of my free time writing a blog that only my mom might read. This allows me to speak entire sentences before the locals get impatient and speak back to me in English.
In any case, my partner spent around two months in July and August away from home, and part of that time he was in Amsterdam. So we opted to spend some time there. Again. I didn’t mind at all. Word to any friends or family who want to visit: I never mind visiting this city. I find something new about it to enjoy every time I’m there, so I will never tire of it. So if you want to put it on your list of must-see cities when you visit (and you must, or I shall be very cross), I will not mind. Here are the highlights:
