Weekend Wanderings: Sun, Sun, Sun in Amsterdam

Here we are, it's Monday again.
I can't be the only one who feels like the time is shorter on weekends, right?

We've started moving back into the kitchen (!) but I escaped the kitchen project for a few hours of reading and enjoying the sunshine in the park. Apparently, this is a reoccuring theme in my life and I'm just fine with that!

It was a generally quiet time reading and people watching, enjoying the fresh spring air and checking out both the routine and odd characters who make their way through the park. From people playing ball or setting up a picnic to the more unique characters who have clearly enjoyed a few too many beers for the day.

Nothing fancy here, just a few bright, sunny images to send some happy energy your way this Monday morning which just happens to be Earth Day as well!

Does anyone else find it interesting to see discover who shares the park bench? 
Maybe it's my inner anthropologist but subsequently, it turns out an open seat on the park bench is a nice way to practice speaking a bit of Dutch with my neighbors. 


  1. I love that you practice your dutch by talking to people on the bench with you. I find more often the people I meet in England are a simple 'hello' and less a conversation talker.

    1. It's fun! But, not gonna lie, sometimes I do wish the language barrier didn't exist for me here. I'm probably gonna go for another round of Dutch lessons soon. Over in the UK I'd probably stumble up on all the funny spelling.

  2. Hello!! I'm writing you from Habitat Parisien, we love the work you do with your blog, we will be updated :) please do check our page and like it if you would like to come back to Paris :) we have liked yours...
