…it was just wonderful being back in Amsterdam last Friday…although we only had one afternoon to walk around with my husband and baby Kiet we were very happy to see our old neighborhood looking fantastic. I hadn't been in two years, but it didn't feel like that at all, not much had changed (not even the weather…rain, rain and sun-shines later on). I have made a lot of pictures and planning to write a small tour for you real soon. I will walk you around in the Jordaan and share my favorite spots with you. Hopefully life this week …:)

    Oh these photos are making me homesick! And look at the gorgeous weather you’re having! Can’t wait to read all about your favourite spots…

    Oh that certainly brings back a lot of memories!
    I lived on the Korte Prinsengracht, just minutes away from where your pictures were taken, for six years, while I was studying in Amsterdam!

    Maybe I should go back some day soon… it looks fantastic indeed!

    & enjoy being ‘back home’!

    this picture of you is GORGEOUS (it should be the photo on your “about” page) and you make me want to live in amsterdam.

    een steek van heimwee in mijn hart bij het zien van de foto’s. Toch maar eens een dagje Amsterdam plannen als de kinderen weer naar school gaan.

    Ik verheug mij op je tour!

    Wish we were back living in the Netherlands! It was a beautiful place and this is an amazing photo of your happiness. Looking forward to seeing more!
