AMSTERDAM DAY 2

1 amsterdam Saturday and we wake up and hurry outside as we have to check out from our room before eleven. 2 daniel amsterdam My back is aching so Daniel carries both of our bags. Such a gentleman. 3 amsterdam We’ve got this brunch place we want to check out and starts heading towards it. Unfortunately it’s tricky to tell the distance on a map and it turns out that it is beyond really damn far and it takes us over an hour to walk there. But it’s gorgeous out and we don’t really mind as we have too many fun things to talk about anyway. 6 boom cafe We finally arrive at the cafe called BOOM and it sure is worth the trip. How come nobody speaks about how Dutch people are the friendliest ever? 4 daniel We order weird salads and steaming coffees while checking out Daniel’s farmers tan and receiving broken cookies from the girl working there. ”I just have to look at these cookies for them to break. You guys eat them so my boss won’t notice.” 5 Amsterdam were overflowing with cosy cafes and bars and restaurants, and all people were well dressed and friendly. Style must be some sort of Dutch heritage thingy because everywhere is beautiful. 6 daniel People on bikes surrounded us, a tram passed once every so often. We sat there watching hilarious transatlantic snapchats and recorded the silliest videos. 7 cafe boom Feeling less hungover we said bye to Boom and caught a tram down central again. 8 market To a huge flea market by Waterlooplein. It was filled with little gems among the trash. Old military gear, denim shirts, fur coats, furniture and expensive trench coats. Go there if you like scavenger hunting! 8 As the sun kept on shining we shared coffees by the canal, got lost on the pedestrian streets for a few hours before we bumped into drug cartels in an alleyway and quickly turned back. 9 amsterdam Filled with fatigue we grabbed the first seats we could find that included outdoor seating, people watching and drinks. I ordered the prettiest drink ever that tasted awful. I must remember that I don’t like rhubarb drinks. 10 amsterdam train station Then it was time to head to the train station. And I do have a soft spot for train stations. 11 daniel It was time to head out to the Dutch countryside and the little town of Eerbeek, where our babe Sebastiaan is from. 12 feest He picked us up with his car, blasting Bruce Springsteen obviously, and we drove through fields, over canals and arrived at the party! 18 seb daniel Seb’s parents had gathered 130 of their finest people for no reason at all to have hell of a feast. We were super excited. 14 bouncy castle Because they had one of these! Plus an Italian restaurant catering the finest food ever, plus endless bottles of wine and beer from the wooden bar. 15 daniel We hung out in the paddock where they used to keep the horses but that was now occupied by tons of tents and people. 21 vdk   Mr Sebastiaan himself. 20 daniel We ate and drank and pretended to understand dutch and met his parents. 19 Two Irish folk bands played and as half of the family is Irish people went mental. 17 eerbeek16 eerbeek Flown in from the UK were also Seb’s dad’s favourite band since 48 years back. A country band called the The Incredible String Band who used to open for Jimmy Hendrix at Woodstock. Seb’s dad had never seen them live before so he decided they should play at his party. No big deal. 19 eerbeek And the sun dyed the fields and horses and the whole Dutch world all golden. 23 And what’s a party without fireworks. 24 At midnight the chandelier tent (seriously!) turned into some sort of club with Amsterdam djs playing tunes. And oh man, old people can sure still party, that’s for sure. We danced to 80’s rock and country songs, drank up every single beer there was and found some of the band members high as kites, making out in the bouncy castle. 25 At 3am this lady was the last one to still keep on dancing. Beaten by a +60 is painful but pretty great. The whole party moved inside to eat left overs and drink more but me and Daniel snuck out and passed out in one of the tents in the garden. Jesus Christ, Holland you sure are delivering.   Linn
