31 tips for this weekend in the amsterdam weekend guide

WEEKEND! But also: SUMMER! Oh yes, this is the first weekend that’s it’s officially Summer time. And of course we have to celebrate that little fact ;-). I always love that, when the weather’s getting better and the summer months are approaching, there are lots of events outside. A movie night on Friday is always inside the house, underneath a blanket preferably, but we can now also enjoy that outside at Floor 17 – that also has a roller skating rink by the way – at 85 meters in the sky! But this weekend we can also dance on the silent disco party Vondel Disco, go shopping at a Vintage Sale in Amsterdam North or go dancing till the early morning in De Marktkantine. These and many more tips can be found in this Amsterdam Weekend Guide for June 22, 23 and 24. Enjoy!

My new book STAYCATION is in stores now. A book full with inspiration and travel guides for a vacation close to home. In this elaborate blog you can read all about it! It’s so much fun to read all the comments on Instagram <3. Thanks for all the support and lovely reactions!


PS: There’s a new vlog this week on! This vlog is all about Father’s Day and for the occasion Leonard takes over my vlog! Have a sneak peek behind the scenes and of course you can also follow me on Instagram Instagram!
