Photo Diary | Holiday!
It is a very long time ago I take you along my life in a photo diary. My holiday started last Tuesday and before I packed my bags, I enjoyed my holiday at home. Take a look at my Photo Diary Holiday!
Tuesday evening I came home from work, soaked by a hailstorm. But I didn’t mind. My holiday had started. The holiday I have looked for so long. I must always get the realization that it is so far. My own rhythm. Do what I want to do. Not too many obligations… So I decided to enjoy this holiday to the fullest and took two more days to spend it at home before we will leave for Nice.
What did I do these days? I will take you along in my photo diary Holiday!
Wednesday 3 May
I wake up early and see that the weather is better than they have predicted. The feeling that I can do what I want gives me a very nice feeling. I decided to take the train to Amsterdam, to shop a bit, to enjoy terraces and to walk along the canals. To celebrate my first day of my holiday in one of my Dutch favorite cities.
Greetings from Amsterdam!
Love this view on the Brouwersgracht
‘t Spui is one of my favorite places in Amsterdam. When the sun shines, I love to sit on the bench and watch the people go by. I love also to snooze around in the American Book Center Bookshop and Atheneum Bookshop. Both they have a lot of fashion and photography books. Each Friday there is a little book market. On the other side, you find Cafe Luxembourg, where you can enjoy a splendid lunch.
On my book wishlist at this moment:
Another favorite place of mine in Amsterdam. Cafe Royal 98 at the Dam corner. I love to sit at this table where I can watch people and make plans for the day. I can highly recommend the apple pie!
As I walk through the streets of Amsterdam, I love to discover such photogenic places, like this little bakery with the wooden facade.
In the evening I returned home and had a lazy evening on the couch 🙂
Thursday 4 May
After a long but wonderful day in Amsterdam, I decided to have a good sleep. The sun was shining when I woke up and I felt the energy immediately. I enjoyed my breakfast in bed and read some blog posts. My plan for today? Do some writing work, schedule my blog posts for this month, making a list what I had to buy for my holiday, that sort of things…
I wrote 3000 words today! Proud of myself 🙂 It’s not an easy process I can tell you 🙂 but I love the story that I am writing and I hope you will also do when it will be published!
In the afternoon, after a writing a lot of words, I enjoy the sun in our garden with the new Paris Issue of my favorite online magazine, Amayzine. Amayzine, if you read this, I hope you will make more Parisian issues!
When my husband came home from work, we enjoyed a coffee together and prepared our meal: tortellini and an Italian salad.
In the evening I watched the Remembrance Day from the Dam in Amsterdam, where I walked yesterday! It is very impressive and very important that this day should not go by without our thoughts of the fallen in World War 2.
Friday 5 May
Day three of my holiday and I feel how relaxed I am. I do not mind much about the time and I feel how I needed this! Time for myself, time to do what I want to do…I get so much inspiration for my book and blog!
I enjoy my breakfast in bed and watching tv. It is a cloudy morning and I feel a little lazy 🙂 but I love this feeling at the moment. No planning, no meetings, at this moment I have “me”- time and I really enjoy it!
It is Liberation Day and I am taking the train to the center to do some shopping and just walk around. I love walking very much because, during my strolls, I can organize my thoughts. I wrote 3000 words yesterday, but I came to the point, that I do not know at this moment how the story will go on. But I don’t worry too much about it…the inspiration will be back, I am for sure!
Now we come to the end of this photo diary. I hope you liked it to see my first three holidays! If you want to see more from my daily life and what I am doing in Nice, you can follow me on Instagram!
What are your plans this weekend?
