My reward for not smoking
I am so excited!
This morning I woke up and said:
"I want to get away!"
I wrote on post-it notes six different cities:
Prague, Rome, Vienna, Amsterdam, Barcelona and of course Athens, folded them and stuck them on me and my flatmate picked one.
I spent all morning to find a good deal on the net and while I was doing that a thought crossed my mind: "I'm going to miss the last Attic show..." But then -duh!- most hotels have wireless internet now, so I paid a little extra for a hotel with internet access.
I'm going away on Tuesday, coming back Saturday. I'm going to try and see as much as possible. I will try and visit two museums per day, I am very happy that I will finally see the Van Gogh museum. I love Dutch painters like Rembrandt and Van Eyck.
I'll take lots of video and pictures and of course I'll blog everything with detail.
My hotel is 2 miles away from the city centre, but I can walk or take the tram.
I've been wanting to go to Amsterdam for ages now. This will be my reward for being a good girl and not smoking. The trip is going to cost me as much as a month's supply of cigarettes, so there you have it.
And no, I'm not going to smoke any cigartettes or any other stuff like the one they sell in the Amsterdam cafés. I've never tried it anyway, I'm not interested.
See how good I am?
Tomorrow is packing day. I'm also going to buy a new coat because I only have a parka for the winter and I want to look very chic.
This trip sets back my other plans and things i had to do this week, but I don't care.
We only live once.
