My Oh My!

I have had a crazy second half of the year. Something I wouldn't change for anything in the world. I've traveled, seen amazing concerts, and most importantly spent time with those whom I love.

A quick update. Amsterdam. Lovely. Absolutely Lovely (and affordable). The Anne Frank House is a must see. To be in the place where the book happened.. to be in the Secret Annex... I've experienced a lot in my life and I can honestly say, that is one of the most powerful experiences I've ever had. Just Wow.

Oh and in case you wondered... the Red Light District is named after the red lights that surround the windows where the girls stand. How about that?! Fun fact.

Here are some pictures:
Amstelveen: Bikes were EVERYWHERE in the Amsterdam area. Biking is the desired form of transportation.
 Outside of my hotel.
 Heineken Factory!
 Love everything about this. 

Need I say more?

 Tivoli closed the day I arrived, which was one of the main attractions to me.

Also - Did you know that Hans Christian Anderson is from Copenhagen? He is the one who wrote "The Little Mermaid" and apparently most things Disney. 

 It was a beautiful city. An 'Old Soul' as I would say. It was expensive. I mean a $55 dinner at the Hard Rock and all I had was the California Sandwich for an entree!

I went to Malmo, Sweden for a day. It was only a 45 minute train ride from Copenhagen. 

It was a fabulous trip. I loved every minute of it. I thank my lucky stars everyday that I have been granted the opportunity to travel the world.

Just a side note: Less than 2 weeks until I'm back in South Africa. I CANNOT WAIT. 

Take it easy.
