Inspiration hasn’t exactly been knocking down my door of late, which is why I haven’t been posting on here very much. I took a much-needed holiday for three weeks to America and came to the stark realisation that I need to get back to blogging.
I had a really special birthday – I turned 30 on the 4th July, and I was in America to celebrate. It was there that I remembered why I started this blog – I love to travel and share it with others (not only to let my friends and family know that I was doing ok).
I did some pretty crazy stuff while I was in the US – I learnt how to shoot a gun (with no insurance coverage), went on the world’s biggest waterslide, learnt how to gambol, and went whale watching. I basically maxed out my credit card doing stuff that I really loved.
My mantra while I was in the states was ‘fuck it, I’m 30’ which I think is an awesome attitude to have, so I decided to bring it back with me to Amsterdam. When I saw this post which is a bucket list of things to do in Amsterdam by my dear friend Elysia, I said ‘challenge accepted.’ I’m not really 100% sure about falling into a canal, or taking truffles but I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it. I’ve already done about 13 or 14 of these, and I may repeat some of them again (Karaoke at The End anyone?), but for those things that are blog-worthy I will be posting about them here.
I will also be blogging about a lot of other stuff too – I just wanted to write and say to you (and myself) that I promise I will be blogging more, and doing more awesome things in Amsterdam. I’ve missed you.
