May 1st is a holiday in Germany so almost a year ago, since we realized our calenders were full before we knew it, we decided to take a trip on this long weekend. The date was set since then the destination so much haha we decided to go to Amsterdam pretty last minute. We wanted to have a nice hotel with a spa while also being in a big city to be able to go out for dinner!
I already told you this on friday but I was exhaused going into this weekend! I was very excited but very exhausted.
Annalena and I drove to Amsterdam, Janis flew in from Berlin and we all met at the hotel. The most important thing you need to know about our weekend: it rained! All weekend! The minute we set found in this city until the minute we left it, it rained. Before was sunshine and afterwards too – just not while we were there! It gave me the perfect reason to sleep in, work out (we had a beautiful gym at the hotel!), enjoy the pool and saune etc.. but it also created some tension because kind of being locked in a room/hotel for 3 days with 3 people is sometimes a little too much. We made the most of it, and we also had two rooms which made it kind of fun to go from one to the next but it also limited our options seeing the city wise. I left Amsterday after the weekend pretty relaxed and sleeping in, working out, pool and saune and having time to read was just what I needed – plus time with friends does wonder to my heart and soul! City-wise: we enjoyed our evening dinners and did some shopping but nothing major. Which was not a huge downfall since we all had been to Amsterdam before and we also didnt come to Amsterdam primarily to do sight seeing.
Here are my Amsterdam impressions:

A welcome home sign was waiting for me at home <3
