Looks like summer has finally arrived in Amsterdam this weekend!
Yesterday, while Amsterdammers took over the city parks and the beaches at the North Sea, I had the pleasure to enjoy the sun in Ioana`s beautiful garden in Amsterdam West. Dana and Elena joined, and Ioana`s two adorable children kept us company.
Each time I step inside, Ioana`s place charms me completely. It`s one of the most welcoming homes I`ve ever been to, exuding such positive energy. The sun, however, urged us all out, on the little patio, and we couldn`t have been happier.
Ioana baked cake for us, and brewed delicious coffee. While enjoying them in the garden, at shade, only the typical Dutch buildings around us reminded me that I was in Amsterdam. As we were all speaking Romanian, my feeling was that we were somewhere at the seaside, in a village at the Black Sea, having a late breakfast outside, in the garden, before jumping into our bathing suits, grabbing the towels, and heading towards the beach. Yes, summer can have this effect on me! 🙂
