Bruges is a fairytale town

Reading Time: 2 minutes In September my wife and I visited Bruges. We were inspired by the film ‘In Bruges’. Odd inspiration I know but it did make us want to go and see the place for real.

7 days in Amsterdam

Reading Time: 4 minutes I miss Amsterdam. I really really miss it. Something always happened there. But more than that I feel like its the first holiday I’ve had where I actually relaxed. Before your mind goes there, no. Beer, chocolate and I’m slowly getting into whiskey. Thats all. No crazy coffee shopping. I couldn’t afford the laundry bills. […]
