26 February 2015

Weekend inspiration for February 27 + 28 & March 1 >>

While writing this Amsterdam Weekend Guide I’m chilling at my pool-bed in  Dubai. Soaking up some sun! I’m here for a weekend of Eat, Sleep, Rave, Repeat with my love. Oh yes and of course work too. But hey, I don’t mind working when I can dip my toes in the pool from time to time ;-). It’s my first time in the Vegas of the East! Thanks for all your lovely tips on Instagram by the way. Luckily you don’t have to be bored either in Amsterdam. Plenty of cool things to do! Read all about them in the Amsterdam Weekend Guide >>
