Hands up who read my post about my first meditation session and the beautiful new volvo!?…………..No? Well go do it now! Its right here. For anyone that missed it, Volvo were helping people “escape the city, in the city” with a variety of different activities.
Well, with a little assistance from the amazing team at Volvo, they actually helped me escape the city for real and head down to Tilques in France for a long weekend away.
I’m a big fan of Amsterdam. I’ve always thought as far as weekend breaks go, it’s perfect! With only an hour flight and only an hours time difference it’s the perfect destination for a quick get away.
We woke up after far too little sleep, 3 hours to be precise, all still a little drunk and hazy from the night before.
Why were we up so early i hear you ask, we thought we had to check out of our little apartment at 10am. But there was some confusion over where we should leave our bags. After uming and arring for a while we decided to go grab some breakfast first to sober up and hope by the time we were done we had heard back from our apartment owner.
We hadn’t. So we waited around for another 20mins, trying desperately to ring, text and email the owner before giving up and heading out into the sun. Our first stop was East Side Gallery. East Side Gallery is probably what most people picture when you say Berlin. Its the famous part of the Berlin Wall that has been covered in amazing illustrations.
