Finally back from my trip around Holland. You guys can't even imagine in such sad mood I've been since I came back home. This trip has been one of the most amazing, fun, and meaningful journeys I've ever been into. One of those who make you realize how things work, who you really are and what is the place to be. Not the typical sightseeing trip of course, because going on a trip with my Architecture School mates means everything but not a regular trip. You may get exhausted of walking and literally run from place to place, sometimes you get to buildings nobody knows or understands why it's important and most of the time, you end up lost on strange villages walking hours to finally find a tiny concrete house nobody seems to care about. But amongst all that, you make new friends, you meet amazing people and you realize how remarkable is to get lost around.
Seriously, I never thought I would love this country so much. I never thought I would fall for another place than New York, but I did. The first days were just crazy, with bikes running over us (because you might know, bicycles are near to be THE religion on the Netherlands), with everyone of the group having misunderstandings with the language (although everyone around there speaks English, but who cares...) and you can imagine in what kind of tangles everyone of us got into. But then, we started discovering how kind and likable people was, I started being amazed on how special the weather is around Amsterdam (I ended up soaked several times due to eventual rain showers...), and how the whole ambient felt. Believe me, Holland is a magical country.
So, this is not the regular outfit post nor even the regular trip post (as you could see here or here). On this article, I wanted to share what I felt on this journey more than focus only on fashion or architecture. I want you to become part of this experience.
Also, say a huge THANK YOU to all my friends and mates who helped me not also enjoy that much this trip, but also to shoot some of the pictures you can see here today!
Had SO MUCH FUN around Rem Koolhas' "Educatorium building" at Utrecht's University. I think I've never felt so silly in my life.
I completely love how modern architecture shares the streets with more traditional constructions. They also have that "something" with rounded shapes and adding and mixing colors which is truly ah-wesome!
