Back in 2013 we took a trip to Amsterdam to celebrate my birthday and I’ve been a bit obsessed with it ever since. It was the first city abroad that I could see myself living, full of canals, cheese, beer and history. What more could you want!?
You can also see from the quality of the pictures that we have made some serious improvements to the camera kit over the last couple of years!!!
We only had a couple of days so wanted to hit up some of the most well known sites, I haven’t included everything here mainly because at the time I was rubbish at taking notes but here are some of my must see’s!!
So I finally tool the plunge and decided to upgrade to a custom domain name! Not a huge deal I know as they are pretty cheap to come by but hey ho thenonbackpacker.com it is!!!
After rounding up 2016 I began to think forwards to this year (as everyone on the internet does) and found myself pondering over some finer points – here is my sort of not resolution for 2017!
I quite often find myself in a horrible cycle of spending my weeks wishing they would hurry up so that the weekend could come and we could do something fun. In reality, the weekends aren’t always fun and your life is predominantly made up of 9 to 5s. Maybe we should all spend less time wishing our lives away and more time living in the here and now. Just a thought!
I remember having this conversation with myself at the beginning of 2016 but I find myself a year down the line wondering where has the time gone and what have I done with all my non-holiday time!? Even 10 days into a new year I’ve spent a whole weekend doing nothing and effectively wasting it. Now I’m not saying that everyone should always be on the go all the time and sometimes a day in your PJs on the sofa with a tub of pringles is just what’s in order but I want to make that unusual and not the norm.
Been a bit quiet round here again. Probably due to my lack of get up and go in the winter months but I hope to be up to date with all our adventures by the end of the year!!
Still got an awesome trip to Berlin coming up in 12 days time!!!!!
Only 3 days, 9 hours, 57 minutes & 27 seconds until we head off to Iceland for a long weekend! Waterfalls, hot springs, epic scenery and birthday celebrations. Bliss!
I have finally caught up with my posts from our amazing trips in 2015 – from Uzbekistan to Budapest and China. I will be doing a recap post of the whole year with my highs and lows but thought I would start with what we are planning to do this year. (Eeekkk)
My new year’s resolution for 2015 was to do more things – which I certainly achieved from Gin Festivals to camping trips. For 2016 its again to do more things…but this time outside!! So a year full of the great outdoors and some awesome nature.
It’s been a few months since our last getaway and I’ve got itchy feet today! Someone send me a ticket to somewhere new!
Still 58 days till we are in Scotland for a week!
Check back soon for an update on what’s
happening this year!
We are still here and I promise I will get up some more posts about China it’s just been very busy getting back into work and in the run up to Christmas. So please bare with me I will get there!
Anyone been up to anything interesting recently?
Slight delay on some new content as we currently have no Internet!
Hope to have it back up soon for a post on the West Dean Chilli Fiesta!
