Bye Sinterklaas! And HELLO Christmas madness that can finally really start. Last week I have listed the best Christmas markets for you that are coming to Amsterdam. I can’t say it often enough, but for me the [category cat = “6253” text = “Christmas period“] can last two months! As you’re reading this I am on my way to France with Peugeot for the last press trip of the year, where I will hear everything about the e-2008. YES! Next year I will switch completely to electric driving for Your Little Black Book. Quite exciting and I have a lot of questions (like, have you ever heard of the term charging-station-stress?) and therefore so happy that this weekend I am surrounded by the real experts who can tell me everything about electric driving. And guess where you can find me on Sunday? At one of the Sunday markets or skating rinks of course! You can read all there is to do this weekend in this new Amsterdam Weekend Guide for December 6, 7 & 8!
