#11 Utrecht, Nederland
by Love Like Birds
Good morning, Amsterdam!
The cat didn’t sit on my face during the night, and I slept like a baby.
We were both still tired and decided to have a little yawn fest together
The sun was out!
A good change from all the bad weather of the past weeks.
Maybe I can just wear 1 sweater underneath my coat today…
Vitamin D, here I come
By the time I was ready to leave, the sky was overcast with big, dark grey clouds.
Fine, 2 sweaters, my coat, hat and scarf then.
Hooray for fall.
I had 4h to get to the venue, so happy I could spend it here in Amsterdam.
Had a picnic for one by the Amstelveld, close to the venue.
It was freezing, so I gave up, and went back to the Amstelkerk, where I was welcomed to the fine tunes of Maaike Ouboter, one of the 8 finalists of “De Beste Singer Songwriter van Nederland”
Since Tuesday is the start of my exams, I use the 2h I have left to study.
We load in, and head out to Utrecht.
We arrived together with the rain, and they were sceptical on letting us in. Not believing we were who we are, since we were about an hour too early.
Study time; Pressure is poking at my back.
An shows me the Kabouter Prikkebeen video she’d been talking about.
The food was delicious and the crowd was great.
They always warn me about how Dutch people talk and talk during shows, but you could hear a pin drop!
We are all very tired and need to drive for about 2,5h, so we head out, and I tell my best jokes to Benne, to keep him from falling asleep.
A late night snack somewhere in the middle
So happy to be back in my own bed.
My back and shoulders have been killing me the past weeks, so I heat up my cherry pit cushion and hide underneath the sheets
