Apologies for the lack of content lately. I made a major mistake in traveling to Las Vegas the week before I had a trip booked for Amsterdam and Iceland.
And despite the fact that I only spent 24 hours in the place; Vegas still managed to go straight through my body’s defenses. I’ve spent the last week riddled with the flu—bedridden at first, then on a plane, and now freezing to death besides the cold and foggy canals of Amsterdam.
No energy to write, that’s for sure.
I’m traveling with a friend, which meant postponing or canceling the trip wasn’t in the cards. Still, we’re making it work—although perhaps spending a little more time sleeping than we’d planned. A traveler adapts, though.
We’re staying at ClinkNOORD, a trendy new hostel that’s just a short ferry ride from Amsterdam Central Station. Great location and decor, although a bit large for my taste. I miss the small, cozy vibes of the hostels in the Balkans. It’s understandable though—Amsterdam sees considerably more tourist traffic than any of the places I visited at the end of last year.
But I digress. The point: don’t wipe out your immune system before a trip you’ve had planned for months. Especially not if you’re visiting northern coastal destinations in the middle of winter.
It’s really quite miserable.
Anyways, here are a few pics from Amsterdam in January. As you can imagine, it’s not the best place to visit when you’re having trouble regulating body temperature.
(But I would still recommend it over not traveling at all!)
Regular content to resume soon.
