Hello! It’s been awhile! We went to Amsterdam for a holiday last week and it was lovely. Of course the re-entry to real life is a bit jarring, but what’re you gonna do?

Process photos! I sort of felt like I wasn’t taking very many, but it looks like between my big camera and my phone, I was able to capture some decent snaps. We visited 8 museums in 7 days, took a train to the Hague, and ate a lot of food. I did have some trouble with panic attacks :( so I wasn’t always able to do/eat everything I wanted, but I managed to have a great time anyway.

    Wow, you have visited so many museums during you stay. All of them worth while I would say. Glad you enjoyed yourselves here in The Netherlands!
