Don’t I look happy? 🙂 Besides fashion and clothes what I love is travelling. My work involves a lot of travel and that makes me love what I do. My shoots take place all over India and sometimes abroad. I also save so that every year I can make a trip abroad and one within India which involves no work. This year in the month of August three of my friends and I went to Europe. We managed to travel to six countries in the span of twenty four days. It was hectic but completely worth it!
One of my favourite cities was Amsterdam, the capital city of the Netherlands. We stayed in a hostel called Flying Pig Downtown Hostel. If you are going to Amsterdam, I totally recommend you to stay there. Its right where the shopping is, its near the central station and it’s very very lively. The photo you see below is the one I took from our room.
The canals are very pretty, we took an evening boat ride around the city. Amsterdam is definitely a party hub but it does have an old world charm.
Approximately, half an hour away by train is this small town called Haarlem. It felt like I was in a Harry Potter movie! Some parts of it reminded me of Narnia. The streets are cobbled, with coffee shops by the side, it has this beautiful gothic church. We sat by, drank some wine, the weather was beautiful – a perfect day.
This is the first time I saw raspberries growing. The happiness I got just by looking at it! Also I had to drag my friend Erica away as she wanted to pluck and eat them!
This gorgeous flower pot picture was part of our five things post.
In September, my sister Anisha along with her husband, DJ, and few friends also made a trip to Amsterdam and Haarlem. These are few of the pictures she took and I loved them. What impressed me about her trip was that they cycled from Amsterdam to Haarlem. I’m a little jealous as I would have loved to do the same!
Outfit details: Black faux leather short and platform booties from H&M, faux leather cropped jacket from Forever 21 and cross body bag from Chanel.
She also managed to make a trip to the Heineken Brewery. Its quite a fun experience. We all skipped the other museums since we were short on time but if you are an art lover, Amsterdam is quite a paradise.
If you live in Amsterdam or have visited often, let me know your recommendations please! I know I am going back again!
