A day in Amsterdam

 

Some tourist think Amsterdam is a city of sin, but in truth it is a city of freedom. And in freedom most people find sin.

Hello Loves!

We were in Amsterdam a couple of months back and we absolutely loved it. We had never been there before and our first experience with the city was very pleasant. We do think it was quite crowded, however we tried to see past that and to do as much as we were able to. We visited some museums, went shopping, went out for dinner and just wandered around in this unique city. Continue reading

Hello Bibliophiles!

One of our favorite things to collect or purchase are books. We love strolling around in old or contemporary bookshops and try to find as many books as possible. Everytime we enter a bookshop one of us leaves at least with three books… Yes. We might have a slightly bit of a problem. However, you can never have to many books, right? The last couple of months, we’ve collected again some pretty great books and we’d like to share them with you. Continue reading

Hello readers & non-readers!

We often hear people say that they would love to read more. The only problem seems to be that people find it hard to find time for reading or they say that reading takes a very long time. We think that reading is really good for you and that a lot of people should read more often. Personally, we haven’t got any trouble with starting a book. However, we are aware of the fact that it can be quite difficult for people who are not used to reading. That is why we came up with a list that can turn you into a bookworm.  Continue reading

Hello Artists!

We love ART in all its wonderful ways. Personally, ART is for us a way to escape. Whether that is throughout a painting, a play, dance, music or any other kind of ART. It is a way in which you can show yourself and at times explain yourself. Continue reading
