Hello Amsterdam Dance Event! We can’t miss it. The city is turning yellow this weekend. But … if you want nothing to do with any of the party fever, not to worry, because there is also plenty of other fun stuff to do in the city. Now that we live close to the Amsterdamse Bos, we are going to the Pure Market on Sunday for sure. We are also very busy making our temporary home a HOME and we are busy renovating in our own house. I will give another update about Project Renovation soon! For now I wish you a nice weekend and have fun with the 10 tips from this new Amsterdam Weekend Guide for October 18, 19 & 20.
