Much Pasta & Many Waves

I love the sea, but I hate sand. Despite of this little phobia of mine, Angela and I had a few lovely days by the sea - eating pancakes, cooking cheap pasta, listening to the crashing waves and watching (a little bit too many) crappy MTV-series in the evenings. You might have spotted some of these photos on my Instagram already, but here are the less Instagram-y, more atmosphere-describing ones. Enjoy!

My aunt and uncle are on a holiday to Austria for a few weeks, and since their house would be empty and I (initially, but that's been sorted out!) had to look for a room in Amsterdam and they live quite near to the city they asked me if I'd want to live in their house for a few days. Uhm, yes! They live super close to the sea so who'd say 'no'!

We could use their bikes but I didn't want my aunt's and uncle's beautiful bikes to be stolen so I decided to take my niece's tiny one. I looked like this for a 7km bike ride:

But it was worth it, because we spotted some beautiful purple flowers, and we had pancakes for lunch. (Enormous pancakes. We both couldn't finish them!)

The weather wasn't as perfect as we hoped and expected it to be but we had a lovely time anyway - we took some photographs, went in the sea (with our feet only!) and threw a little ball. We went back home when it started to get a bit too windy. 

This is Tom. My uncle and aunt have two cats but this was the sweetest one!

Angela, living the good life.

And finally: a little pitstop in my little room in Amsterdam for a cup of tea. 

We had a few lovely days and I'm still feeling full of all the tortilla chips we ate, the enormous pancakes I showed you and the large amounts of pasta we ate.

Are your school and/or workdays over yet? Are you going away for a few days/weeks? Please let me know!

  10. It looks like this little getaway was so much fun! My brother's girlfriend is dog/house sitting in a stunning movie-like house that has an indoor pool and that's right by an enormous river (with a mountain view on the left and a city skyline on the right), so she, my brother, our cousin and I went up for the day and had a great time swimming in the basement and relaxing in the hammock by the water. It was beyond perfect!
