This Christmas…

We would love to… Have cup of hot chocolate in Angelina Paris and then go for a long afternoon walk in Montmartre. Skate along the frozen Dutch canals in Kinderdijk. Experience an authentic Winter wonderland dream in Putevny, Czech Republic. Indulge to high tea in London (at the Claridge’s, if posible). Ski in Switzerland (that means watch other people skiing while we sip a hot chocolate mocktail in a cosy wooden cabin). Wander through the almost deserted alleys in Venice. Observe the Northern lights in Lapland. Go Christmas shopping in Copenhagen. Take my mum to Scotland for a whiskey tasting. Visit all the traditional cafes in Vienna and eat lots of Dobos Torte… or escape from the cold weather and head to the Canary Islands. A girl can dream! Do you have any travel dreams for this Christmas? Picture via Pinterest.

Amsterdam photo diary

This was our first time in Amsterdam. A weekend, no plans ahead and so many things to do… What did we do? Walk. We didn’t visit any museum and gosh there are museums in Amsterdam!!! But we wanted to see the canals, discover the corners that we had seen so many times in travel magazines, we wanted to be spontaneous and we wanted to say goodbye to Summer. I felt a little bit overwhelmed because I really wanted to make the most of the weekend but also be relaxed and easy going… So I ended up a tad frustrated and anxious. Yep. That’s what happens when I try to be spontaneous. Does that happen to you too? All in all we had a great time, we walked until we were exhausted and we fell in love with Amsterdam. Obviously, we have to come back to visit some museums and eat some stroopwaffel! Here you have some pics and highlights of our weekend if you’d like to see…

Last week we almost booked a trip to Amsterdam. We wanted to do something spontaneous, so we decided we would book a hotel for the weekend, jump on a train and enjoy the city! Of course that didn’t happen. I just can’t be spontaneous. No hotels available, problems with the trains… I hate being spontaneous but when I try the universe stops me!  Anyway! Amsterdam is one of those cities that we want to visit but apparently we can’t, like Stockholm or New York. Oh well… we’ll just keep trying! Maybe next Spring? I can totally picture us on our super cool bikes, smelling the tulips, wandering through the Canals, eating Gouda… sigh! ;) What about you? Are you spontaneous when booking your trips and holidays? Or are you a control freak like me?
