Weekend tips for october 23, 24 & 25

YAY! Weekend in Amsterdam! It’s so good to be back with all my friends and of course my lover. The three weeks in New York have flown by! The first hotspots are already in the guide, you can check them here. This weekend I’m going to relax and recover from my jetlag and I think that some of you also are feeling the same after Amsterdam Dance Event :-) Cafe De Ceuvel will be transformed in a spa and at Tolhuistuin is a yoga festival, perfect! Are you more in the mood for a shopping spree? There are enough cool markets and boutiques to visit. You can read all about it in this Weekend Guide.
