A DAY IN AMSTERDAM

I didnt plan at all when I travelled to Amsterdam.  Just decided what to do and where to go on the day or the night before.  When I came back I found out I had missed a lot of the tourists’ spots or so but I dont feel pity (well a bit) because I know I will find a way back to Amsterdam…since I love it so much.

Here is the story of my last day there.

I went to Van Gogh Museum AGAIN.  Because the day before when I arrived it was too busy and too many people waiting to get in.  So I decided to go to Albert Cuypmarket instead and come back again earlier on the next day.

Later at night I found out the same thing happened to my three roommates at the hostel. So we just decided to go together to the museum!! And the day before we didnt even really talk or know each other yet!  Thats why I love staying at a hostel.

Before we started to get to the museum they brought me to a cafe to enjoy some sun and…weed XD image image image

After saying goodbye to my friends I walked around and found out it was the day of the month that had museum market!!  Another lovely surprise without any planning :)

Had two Holland’s fries in a day….just because the first one was too good and I couldnt help buying another one from this No.1 voted store..but…sometimes its better not to follow the travel guide or adviser. Best served with mayonnaise.

The last surprise was my new roommate who is from Taiwan.  When I returned hostel I tended to stay and sleep early because I had an early flight to catch.  Then we ended up exploring the red light district at night, had a nice dinner and a space cake!  A nice end of my trip.  See you again soon Ams, so much love. xxx

 

I will be sending out postcards from Van Gogh Museum for the very first time!  If you want one simply:

And the first 3 readers will get my postcards!!

 

 

 

BLUE LAGOON

Before heading to Iceland the thing I concerned the most is how do I take pictures at the blue lagoon.  People on the internet recommended waterproof case for mobile or camera.  I brought my go pro but you know you can’t really take a good selfie with it.  As a solo traveler this is something I really care about XD

In the end, no go pro, no waterproof case, just my little Canon Powershot N2, I took a few photos before my right arm was frozen (the other parts were in the warm water) and then I ran back to the changing room to lock my camera so that I could totally enjoy the lagoon.  The perfect 38 Celsius degrees and the beautiful blue that doesnt exist any other place in the world.

Tips:  

  • bring your own flipflops and towel.
  • the water is good for your skin but not for your hair, so better tie it up if you have long hair!!
  •  the camera guy Nicola takes pictures for the guests for free and send it to your email. Search for him!!! He is in blue uniform.
  • get some mud to apply on your face for a natural mask.
  • its cheaper to order your ticket online.
  • blue lagoon is actually closer to the airport than Reykjavik so if you wanna save time you can go there directly from the airport after you land Iceland or before you leave.  There is luggage storage.
