Dear all, I started this week full on, with my motivation levels back on track. Maybe it was the visit of my bff, last week, that made me get back to myself. Such a shot of positivity I got from that girl! We danced, we laughed, we took it easy, we cycled everywhere, we ate and drank like piggies, and we talked our heads off until we were too sleepy ( or too drunk) to articulate. Is there anything or anyone more uplifting than your best friend(s)? This week I’m damn busy – as usual – but happily surfing this wave.
So let’s get straight to the point. Our selection of cultural events for the week! Don’t forget that every event includes a link to its website, and free events are signaled as well. To get updates please like Amsterdive’s Facebook page. And if you did it already, you have a place in my heart, of course.
