After all the cutting back and scrubbing of last weekend it was time to let go of grumpiness and don a happy face. The best antidote sometimes is to get away from it all.
It's been tricky for the both of us recently to get some time off from work and I'm just glad that we managed to this time. With not much time to plan we headed off somewhere not too far away, in fact only a forty five minute plane ride - Amsterdam.
I've been to this city several times before but it's been twelve years since my last visit and six years of so since Gaz last visited. Despite both being here before, Gaz and I have never visited together and I've almost forgotten how pretty this city is.
It's even prettier than how I remember it to be and it's almost a new experience all over again. This is something I can rarely say about other places.
Here's a few more random scenes we've spotted on our relaxed and aimless walks around the place today:
|A little plant stall, not bad prices either. Still too early for tulips in bloom though|
|I spot some nice plants there!|
|A front 'garden' for a residential apartment by the canal, lovely!|
|I don't know why I like this photo, I just do|
Chill out time continues! We'll try to squeeze in a visit to Hortus Botanicus whilst we're in this charming city.
