Family Birthday Weekend @ Amsterdam#FBF
I went to Amsterdam for the birthday of my auntie . We haven’t seen each other for a very long time. I really was excited to go to this wonderful city and see my family again. The first evening we kept it quiet. We did some catching up with good music in the background and yummy food. The next day we had to do some preparations for the birthday party. In the morning we did some shopping and in the afternoon, it was time to chill & relax. We had a birthday cake degustation at De Drie Graefjes (Lunchroom, High Tea & American Bakery) at the Gravenstraat. They sell the most delicious cake in the city. My auntie picked the heavenly Red Velvet cake as her birthday cake. We took a walk through the city, along the Dam, the famous shopping street: Kalverstraat and the beautiful Rijksmuseum. It was a sunny day so we decided to have a fancy champagne /cupcake pick nick at the Museumplein. We even had sushi, YOLO :o). After we enjoyed the sun for a few hours, it was time to headed home. The next day we had to prepare everything for the guests. In the early evening everyone was present. We talked and enjoyed the delicious Surinam food. Before we knew it was midnight and time to count down for the birthday lady. Of course, the champagne and the Red Velvet birthday cake, couldn’t be missed. I enjoyed every sip and bite :o). In Surinam a birthday celebration without dancing doesn’t exist, so went to the Brasil Music Bar at the Leidseplein. There was a nice exotic atmosphere! The celebration went on and we danced the night away with the birthday lady. When our legs broke down, it was time to go home. It was an unforgettable day. When we woke up the next afternoon, we had our Surinam birthday dinner as brunch and the food even tasted better, than the day before. Unfortunately a few hours later I had to pack and go back to my hometown Antwerp city. With pain in my heart I had to say (good)bye to my family and Amsterdam, I left fully charged with love and new energy. I will definitely be back soon and carry these priceless memories forever in my heart, mind & soul.
