I AMsterdam? yeah?

Hallo! From the Netherlands!

Okay guys. Travel travel travel, walk out and see the canal and buildings mind is being blown up with holy shit, this is pretty fucking cool. (excuse my language grandma…)
If I was a great writer and could describe things in a coherent way I would, but we all know that is just way too far off base for me, so y’all can just sit and listen to my great incoherent babble. K cool 🙂

#1 Bikes have the right away, also there are trams that are just all over the place. IT’s nUTs!!
#1.a Maybe it’s just me because I haven’t ridden a bike in so long, but riding a bike there was a mix between “wow, how crazy cool do I feel right now” to “my life may also end today” Overdramatic? Yes. But is it true? Also yes.

#2 Hostel Review:
This little darling of a place looked pretty sketch from the outside.. Like Hi this is a back alley way where you could potentially be murdered. But nah it was pretty cool. I mean the stairs would definitely probably up the mortality rate if it was an old folks home, but for us youngins, we made it all right. Plus we were paired with some really cool hostel mates. (insert a cool emoji I can’t make cuz I am on my computer).

#3 Saturday Overview
Saturday was For The Girls #FightMeDavid 🙂
It was all sorts of becoming old and wise because we were young and crazy stuff. We took a mini -idk do we call it a booze cruise- I mean it sounds cooler. We took an hour canal tour and drank a bottle of wine on it. Very cool peeps. The sights were sighty. Yada yada yada, some events I’m a bit fuzzy about, BUT! The finale of the night was literally going out with our newly befriended hostel mates and we ended up going to the most stellar night club, I think I may ever go to in my life. Again little fuzzy on the bits and pieces. But nah, mind-blowingly cool.

#4 Sunday Funday
MUCH more chill. Making parents everywhere much less stressed. This is when we road bikes getting in some cardio. Then there was the Anne Frank Huis. Very interesting piece of history, well worth the wait. Just one of those things you gotta go to when you’re there. So yeah, we walked through the Red Light District, also very interesting sights. Gals if you want to drop out to make that money, you know where to go. Kidding. (but nah really).

And yeah, that was the jist of my trip. Glad to share it with ya lovelies.
Peace out
(And p.s. I’m booked for Belgium!)

I said most likely about the fake money post. But it is not going to happen.

Instead, I’m just going to say that the first weekend I was here, I was a victim and I say victim of wait for it… A FAKE POUND.

That is all.

London Through American Eyes

Hello guys!
Week 1 is finally coming to a close, so I thought I would lay out some observations.

Numero Uno. The weather is not guaranteed, but I think we all knew that. BUT. Let me tell you when it’s sunny it is really sunny. And I mean this in the way that when the sun is out, it sometimes feels like I am walking into the light. The most blinding light ever. Also I feel a little estranged from the sun because I feel like it’s further away from the earth than Wisco. Weird observation but it’s there.

Numero dos. Scooters are cool shit here. Like plain and simple they are “in”. The youngins use them, the midis use them, and even some of the oldies.

Numero tres. Oh my gosh, the best one!! The pups are everywhere! And they aren’t even on leashes! Like whaaaat?! That makes them so much cooler. It’s like hey I’m just hanging out with my pup, but I don’t need to put him on a leash because we’re mates yo.

I don’t know, it’s pretty cool and kids are just have the most awesome personalities.

Okay see yas!
peace 🙂

First Timer on the Tube

Ok guys, today was the first day of my internship, and with that the first time I traveled the Tube alone. (Also take note that I only took it one time before with the girls.) So here I am trying to follow the map on my phone to the tube station, and mind you it is very windy, very rainy, and in consequence very cold. But I find the station and it surprises me a bit on how crowded it was or should I say how uncrowded it was. I really assumed it would be more packed.

Time to get on and I find a seat, no problem, all is well. But that was only the short trip, then I had to switch platforms to head to the train/tube (whatever) to Wimbledon. On that trip it got a bit crowded at the first few stops, but as we got further from Central London, the crowds thinned out quite a bit.

So all in all, the tube IS NOT as bad as it seems at all.

Therefore ladies and gents have no fear, and ride away to your hearts content.
peace and sunny days from london 🙂

Packing For the Summer

What. A. Nightmare.

How are we supposed to pack for an entire summer in the same suitcase that we use to go to Florida for a week?! Seriously. The females of the world should be allowed a greater weight-limit on their checked baggage right?

Well, that just isn’t the way the world turns my friends. Nope. So when you start to try and pack it can be somewhat of a crazy tornado. As you can see in the picture I haveIMG_4785 so kindly provided you below. Figuring this out was madness. Plus there is the whole “I can’t put this in my suitcase now because I might need it before I leave!!” So really nothing could be permanently packed until the day before.

With that I also ended up labeling in my check list exactly where every item I packed went because I know the whole “I know I packed it but where did I put it?” schpeel.

I tried to, as they say, pack light. But really what is packing light? I feel embarrassed to even say how much I brought. Possibly too much and possibly too little, the world may never know. It is too late to really change it now as I am three hours from home and leaving in an hour to head to the airport. So I just got to trust I brought what I needed and if I missed something that I will be able to buy it there.

see ya in london ❤
peace

Memories in Music

Lately I have been going through my bedroom to clean stuff up and get rid of things that are just unnecessary. So during this process I have found old trinkets and mementos and photos. Looking at the photos it just amazes me that I can look at a picture from when I was 4 years old and I am amazed that I can recall the actions that accompany the photo.

Okay so anyway, that just brings me up to today. I was outside just ya know playing some Candy Crush and listening to music. And I just come across a song that just kind of makes me laugh. For me, memories that go along with songs are usually related to relationships I have had.

I just think it’s interesting that for every relationship that I am apart of I usually get introduced to an entirely different body of music. And since it is music that I don’t actively seek out, I usually only listen to what they show me and add it to my playlist. Therefore being that some of these relationships go some years back; here I am probably with these specific songs that remind me of them and they are probably so far past knowing that insignificant song anymore.

So there you go. Memories and music. My take.

Trip Before the Trip

So it’s one week before going across the pond, and I’m just chilling outside my grandma’s house (because she’s not home yet, but all is fine when I can access the wifi from out side). hashtag insert laugh. It is going to be a girls trip to a family reunion in Missouri. A mini vaykay before the real thing; not saying that the trip to London is this crazy vacation because Monday-Friday I will either have class or be working.

But Hell! Who can complain when they’ll be living in one of the coolest places ever all summer?!

Tomorrow I’ll be waking up at the crack of dawn and sitting for a 9 hour ride; so I’d say thats some good preparation for the jet-lag and 10 hour flight I am going to have to conquer next week.

As the Brits might or might not say, Cheerio!
