Amsterdam – A Magical City
Some cities have magic in them, but the magic will always be different for each person who experiences it. To me, Amsterdam has a certain kind of magic that is hard to put into words. It’s not about being high, although that can certainly make the experience into something special for sure. It’s something else.
It’s the canals and the houseboats. Where people live on water and have a different outlook on life. A city where you’re always close to water.
It’s the crowded streets. The vibe from all the people, and not just the Dutch, but there are people from all over the world. As you walk through the alleys you hear so many different languages, and see so many different and beautiful faces.
It’s the restaurants, the cafés, and the vegan food. A city packed with cozy places to sit down for a meal, a coffee or a smoke.
It’s the atmosphere in this city that makes me smile just thinking back on it.
I guess magic is the only right word to really describe it after all!
During the next couple of days, I will be posting some reviews and other tidbits about my Amsterdam trip, and I can’t wait to share it all with you guys! The video from the trip will be up sometime later this week too, so stick around for that 💛
Now I’m going to get myself a much needed good night’s sleep!
Do you have a city that’s magical to you? Let me know in the comments 😊
2017 Vlog 5 – Vacation Time
I finally posted a video a couple of days ago, and it feels really good to finally be back on track (almost) with my creative projects. The video I posted was filmed before I took my long break. During that break my camera just died on me. I felt kind of naked, not having my camera along with me whenever I was out and about. Bringing it along has become more like a habit after I started to vlog. I tried filming a bit with my phone, but the sound and the video quality wasn’t nearly as good as I wanted it to be, so I pretty much gave that up.
I sent my beloved Sony A5000 away to get fixed, dreading the possibility that it might not be covered by my warranty. Luckily it was! They had to replace the motherboard to revive it.
Today I got the text that I’ve been impatiently waiting for! My camera was back and ready to be picked up. I rushed over there after work and now we are finally reunited once again! We have lots of exciting and creative plans, and we’re going on some awesome trips soon as well! I can’t wait to finally start filming again! So much so that I’m actually charging it now while enjoying some coldbrew coffee and doing some writing. When I’m done with that, I’m taking my camera for a celebratory walk in Oslo to get some new footage. I can’t wait!!
Hope you’re all having a wonderful day!
