Remember last month I took you to my favourite Amsterdam 5 star hotel? (here in case you missed it). This time I went a bit outside my comfort zone and I decided to show you a place that maybe would’t be on your top five list when you visit Amsterdam, but it definitely should! Imagine a sunny day, blue skies, leaving the urban business behind, just entering a little door and finding yourself in a beautiful and intimate oasis where you can explore a unique collection of plants (not sure I did that!!), the most photogenic palm trees and cactus without having to travel overseas (absolutely did that!!) and enjoying your cappuccino in the cutest cafe (never miss that!!).
Several warm glass houses, which will make you forget you are fighting the winter season in Holland, with walkways to climb up the ceilings and get a great view from the top. . and #fwis shots for the fellow instagrammers. . Just don’t wear high heels. . #justsaying . .
If you were wandering if my life is all about my phone and hangs out in photogenic places (preferably with wifi and a good lighting). . You are almost there! It’s also about clothes, shoes and bags . . again #justsaying. And of course, photography! I am loving to have some green in my feed, palm trees and cactus, in case you missed it on my Instagram here . . It just adds that ‘holiday feeling’ and since I am not in the position of travelling to California with the little one at the minute.. What’s better than finding the real deal in the centre of the city?
By now, I am getting quite fond of the look of my phone, being my never-leave-the-house-without prime accessory.
Only coming second to my baby girl and credit cards obvs.. B.E. (Before Emma) the phone case was just an extra accessory or something which would make my phone prettier.. Now, it is still something which makes my phone prettier, absolutely loving the Symmetry Series grey case (it shows the rose gold colour of my iPhone and loved it paired with the grey all-around detail) but since my phone became the main attraction for the little one, it keeps dropping on the floor, the street, out of bed, on the tram, she even tries to chew it now #nojoke. . You can only imagine where I would be by now without a strong case.
Finally, you know, I never miss the chance to try a new cafe spot, a good cappuccino and a photogenic coffee art. The botanic garden accommodates a lovely cafe which accommodates a huge tree inside. How pretty and unusual is that?!
I can’t wait for summer days, for a break from the traffic, sitting in the outside garden, having my cappuccino while Emma will experiment walking and maybe will give a break my phone. What I also can’t wait, is showing more about this city and its less touristic hidden places!
Till the next time, see you in a new location, always with a cappuccino in hands and, hopefully, still intact phone thanks to OtterBox.
