Art Everyday Lifestyle Travel

Adventure, Amsterdam and Barbecue

I finally got my Schengen visa and I’m ready for that travel. It’s been a long time coming. So I was supposed to meet up with my friends Ruth and Ebun either in Amsterdam or France. One week before traveling, there was change of plans. I was going to be a solo traveler for the first week in Amsterdam. I had two weeks to spend, thanks to my recharge week and work from any country 💃🏻.

I started my July with beach days, barbecue parties and engagement party with excess food. At this point summer was just starting but I was almost dying of enjoyment.

The struggle leaving the airport was crazy because of internet issues. I finally got my way to this beautiful apartment Pietersbergweg. I was too tired to do anything that day so I had the longest sleep ever. I woke up to already prepared meal that was arranged by my host Nchedo who was in London at the time I arrived. Amsterdam is beautiful 🤩. I wasn’t used to the tall buildings so Yh I was fascinated.

If you’re considering taking a solo trip to Amsterdam, you’re in for an amazing experience. Amsterdam is a vibrant, culturally rich city with a lot to offer travelers of all kinds.

I got back to work the second week, went church visited more places and on my second weekend, we went to Brussels, Belgium. I was il till 2am painting and we had to get a train to Brussels by 7am. It was a tough one for me waking up so early. We decided since it was summer, it wasn’t going to be that cold. God, We were wrong because I was freezing.

Brussels is the capital city of Belgium and is known for its rich history, culture, and delicious cuisine. If you’re planning a day trip to Brussels, there are a number of amazing things to see and do. Here are a few suggestions for how to spend a day in Brussels:

We had this amazing pasta, visited Art and History Museum, Parc du Cinquantenaire before heading back to Amsterdam.

After a few I got back to Ireland with the organising of one of my friend’s bridal shower, Chisom . Urggghhhh I was so stressed especially with the immigration check coming back from Amsterdam to buying props for the bridal squad. It still turned out way better than expected. She was excited

I ended my July still reminiscing on Amsterdam by attending Van Gogh’s art exhibition in Dublin museum. Looking forward to my trip in August.


July was an adventure for me
