It was nice. I went to the cinema with my bf to watch the Rush movie and also went to a friend's birthday dinner
You are right when you say people think the whole Holland is like Amsterdam. Fortunately I had friends (and also met people of Holland consulate during my years of working at immigration)who showed me this thought was wrong
Sounds like a nice weekend
Luckily there are also lots of people who know the difference. Of course Amsterdam is the city with most tourists, that's where people go when visiting Holland. I would advice though, to visit several parts of the country. Even while the Netherlands is really small, I think there are some big differences between the regions and the people.
And it's weekend again... time flies! Anyone plans for the weekend?
I guess for me another relaxed weekend. Tomorrow world championchips cycling start, I definitely need to see a bit of that. Unfortunately no chance to visit this year. I went the last to years (2011 it was in Copenhagen, 2012 it was in the south of Holland), didn't have the possibility to travel to Firenze this year. Would've loved to though.
And to me a close to perfect (autumn) sunday afternoon is some great sports on tv and a great book in my hands.
(Preferable I will do something active, like a great hike, in the morning to have the perfect day.)
