If you would have told me how amazing this year would be for me in 2016, I would have never believed you. I have always talked about travel and seeing the world, but 2017 was my year to take action. I dove deep into the world of travel blogging, and I took advantage of some amazing travel deals. I was adventurous, impulsive, and welcoming to new opportunities, and I can definitely say it paid off. 2017 was a roller coaster to say the least… it was a year full of happiness, love, heartbreak, excitement, and challenges, but most of all it was a year that I truly found myself.
After Amsterdam I made my way to Brussels. I knew I wanted to try their chocolate, waffles, and beer, but hadn’t done too much research on where I wanted to actually go and see while in Brussels. When I got there, I kept reading about The Grand Place, so I decided that’s what I wanted to do. Instead of just walking straight there I decided I would take a walk and see where I ended up. It had snowed the night that I got in, so the next morning when I was ready to leave the sidewalks were covered in ice and it was really hard to walk.
Happy New Year!!
I can’t believe 2017 is already here, and I also can’t believe I rang it in Amsterdam! I had done my research on where to go for New Years celebrations, and I decided to head to Dam Square because a lot of my friends had recommended it who have been there. I headed to Dam Square around 10:30 to get a good spot for the fireworks, and when I got there it was really crowded with rowdy people ready to party. I found a good area to stand, and then it started raining! My jacket didn’t have a hood, but I wasn’t going to let that ruin my night so I just stood there letting the rain wash away my makeup and mess up my hair. Nobody else was letting the rain ruin their night either. All over Dam Square people were throwing firecrackers, fireworks, and anything else you can think of to celebrate. These people were even throwing them into crowds of people which was a little scary.
My Europe trip is finally near! I am officially in the double digits – with only 99 days to go until I jet off to Europe for 3 weeks!
