Kaitlen, Jessica, Mercedes, & me at the I Am Amsterdam sign.
A few days ago when I went through these pictures from Amsterdam, I texted Mercedes to tell her how much I missed our trip to the Netherlands. I started laughing at so many of the pictures I took remembering the stories behind all of them & it made me wish we had more time together there. Who knew 9 weeks would fly by so fast?! As much as I love California, nothing here beats traveling around Europe with your friends. If only time machines existed…

So our trip to the Netherlands was amazing. Amsterdam is absolutely beautiful. It gets this reputation for being a free zone to do whatever the hell you want (drugs & prostitution are legal & the drinking age is 16), so it is often overlooked that it’s a gorgeous city that isn’t out of control. Quite the contrary; it’s a safe city where almost everyone bikes around!
An adorable neighborhood in Zaandam in North Holland with historical windmills & houses. I bought tons of their homemade cheese home for my parents. So amazing. Zaanse Schans is absolutely gorgeous. Green for miles, pretty windmills, & canals.
