I’m not dissappeared.

Sorry for not posting.
I’m getting mad about it, but I have to work a lot in this period and it’s summer time too. I could not resist to a day off to the beach, a dinner out or a beer with friends in this amazing city. I love Amsterdam.
I love the crowded streets in the daytime, where you can listen to almost ten different languages in the same time.  I love the canals, I love the tiny little leaning houses on them. I love the kids inside the bicycle baskets and the smile on their faces. I love the parks, the green spots, the benches all around, where you can sit and stare at the multicultural combination of this city. But the best comes at night… Amsterdam is so amazing after the beautiful rose and red sunset. Dam square is magical with the Royal Palace and the Oude Kerk enriched by yellow lights, Rokin and Muntplein are my favourite with the lights reflected in the canal. I love passing by all this beauties sitting on the back of a bike, while speaking to my friend riding it. It’s an emotion I cannot describe, I just close my mouth, gaze with my eyes and fill my heart.

Last Queen’s day… Welcome to the King: Willem Alexander!

 

Yesterday there was a huge party for all the Dutch people: it was the Queen’s day! But this year was unique as Queen Beatrix abdicated to her son, and now the new King, Willem Alexander!
I was in Amsterdam to celebrate this special festival and thanks to the little sunshine, people dressed in orange everywhere, nice live music in the Jordaan, big screens on Museumplein, tons of celebrating boats on every gracht and lots of exciting things to do in Vondelpark I had a really great time! It was such an emotion to see all the ceremony of the incoronation of the new King from the Museumplein and as we say here in Holland: it was extremely gezellig!
Lange leven de Koning! 😉

Life, meanwhile. In photographs.

I’ve been posting only about cooking and baking in the latest time, but I experienced (and still do 😉 ) my new dutch life in the meanwhile: sightseeing, museum, shops and other stimulating stuff I love.
Yesterday I was at the re-opening celebration of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, it was amazing: queen Beatrix, tons of people, marching bands and the incredible museum just restored. I share some pictures with you!DSC00383

Just an amazing day!

Amsterdam.

I did it. I succeded.
It’s not easy to describe my happiness, my feelings, my joy, but I’m so proud of myself. I cannot really realize at this moment but I did it.
I found a job. I found a job in my favourite city, in my second home-country. I went away from Italy. I had the opportunity.
I changed my life. I followed my dreams and I’m making them coming true. I changed my life because I wanted so much. I made choices, even if they were difficult.

I’m almost speechless, my smile talks in my place.

I think I will update my blog in english from now, just to improve myself and to be in contact with english-speaking-people as well. I will blog about my experience here, my recipes, my life, my thoughts as I did untill now. Probably I will write something in italian, something in dutch. I have a lot of things to do, do discover, to see, to feel.

I’m happy. That’s the best thing.tumblr_mdv0nm8ltA1r2bljmo1_1280_large_edited-1 copy
