Lyckeby, Sweden right now.

New Beginnings
Colorful new beginnings in process, so amazingly beautiful to watch!

A lot has happened since my last blog post. I have been to both Dubai and London. I have bought a house, will move in August. And sadly my beloved grandmother (father's mother) has pasted away. So really I have had a lot to write about. But honestly I have not been feeling very well, sleep issues.

Issues that have made it very difficult for me to manage anything but the most acute things in my life, work-eat-sleep. I am getting help though so hopefully my life can include more fun things than the bare necessities again soon. In the meantime though I thought I would pop in here to do a quick hi-i-am-still-here-post. And to set an official goal to update more often again from now on. :-)

Until next time, I will leave you all with some photos from the recent past...

My beloved grandmother and me. You will always be in my heart! ♥ ♥ ♥ R.I.P. 1938-2014.

I will be back soon with tales of my new beginnings. Ta da for now.

4 Ways to Get the Most Out of Amsterdam
May 3, 2015 1:52 PM



Did you know that there are more canals in Amsterdam than there are in Venice, Italy? These 400 year old waterways are spread throughout the majority of the city giving it a unique appearance. When you're ready to head out to this enticing city, devise a plan to help you get more out of the experience.

Finding Deals

By looking online, you can find all kinds of deals and packages pertaining to finding Amsterdam hotels and flights. This can help you plan for the vacation while reducing what you'll spend in lodging. You'll have more money to put towards the fun aspects of the city without worrying about sleeping arrangements.

Create a Budget Plan

Although not everyone relishes the idea of creating a budget for the vacation, it can help you stretch the money further. This can help you experience more of Amsterdam without tapping the bank accounts dry too early in your stay. Separate what aspects of the trip will need and maintain the budget once you arrive.

Separate Your Money

When visiting any location, you should never have all of your money sitting in a single account. Not only does this prevent the criminal element from exhausting all of your funds should your debit or credit cards get stolen, but it can help you keep track of what accounts are used for which activities. For example, use one payment method for lodging and a secondary for entertainment. This way, you can prevent accidentally spending the money for room and board on souvenirs.

Research Events in Amsterdam

Most cities have a schedule throughout the year of various events that are planned. By researching Amsterdam online, you can find out when these events are being held and perhaps plan your vacation around the date. Cultural events are one of the best methods for immersing oneself in a new location while learning more about the people of an area. It's also a great way to get involved with some of the most engaging parties in Amsterdam.

Amsterdam has an incredible amount of local and world history tied into the location. It's an ancient city with an attraction for many whether you're visiting for the beer or planning a European getaway. Before you begin booking flights and hotel rooms, build a strategy for visiting this great city. Sticking to a strict budget can help you explore more of Amsterdam while giving you more spending money as you explore.
