Midsummer 

I couldn’t believe that when I decided to visit Stockholm last month for the very first time I got the chance to experience their midsummer festival.  I saw a lot of pictures about it years ago and have been dreaming about going there during midsummer time.  The beautiful flower crowns they put on everyone’s heads just made me fancy even more.  

On midsummer’s eve I was in Skansen open air museum to enjoy the holiday with the locals and other tourists.  Seeing the people setting up the Maypole, we danced under it and sang together!! Even tho I didn’t understand what the songs mean it was still fun!!  It was a special memory and experience :)

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.

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
