When your friends get married in Amsterdam…

You know how in your late-20s you get tons of invitations to weddings, so many that you simply have to decline some to maintain a positive bank balance?

That’s where I’m at. But one of those recent invites happened to be for a wedding in Amsterdam. No, not Amsterdam, NY, which is right up the road from me. I’m talking about the Amsterdam that’s in Europe. And when I get invited to a wedding that requires crossing an ocean, I don’t decline. It’s the perfect excuse to travel!

So I’m in Amsterdam for the week. It’s my first visit to the city! I’m spending the first half of the week with a Dutch friend, the second half celebrating the union of two good friends.

I’m also using it as an excuse to get away from the blog. That means no Writers’ Roundup this Friday.

See you next week!

  1. Hmmmm, strange coincidence. Two of my good friends are in Amsterdam to get married right now. Wouldn’t happen to be Marteen and Annabella?

  2. Loved Amsterdam when we were there a few years ago. It’s a lovely city. Have a blast, Alexis.

  3. Amsterdam is still on my list of places to visit, what a terrific excuse to go!

  4. I hope you have a wonderful time and that your friends’ wedding is all they hope for.

  5. Last summer my friends got married in Cardiff – and then two days later, some other friends got married in Oxford. We simply HAD to go.

    Hope you’re having fun!

  6. Have a great time! You’ll love it. It’s a great city with loads to see and loads to do and a great vibe. I actually live about 20 minutes from Amsterdam by train in a city called Utrecht. Moved here with my Dutch husband and just adore the Netherlands!
