Earlier this year I went to Amsterdam on a society trip. At first, I knew no-one but I was bunked with 4 other lovely girls. Those girls, their friends and I became the #bansterdam squad. We were in Amsterdam for 4 days, and this was us trying to pose like Skins characters in a ‘wanky angle’ photo outside the Van Gogh museum, which for the record is amazing, and you should totally go, there’s like a gazillion paintings and about 4 floors. It took about 2 and a half hours to walk around it. I had such a laugh with these amazing people and we had so much fun. I’m glad I met them. I don’t think that 4 days was actually enough because I would have liked to do so much more. It’s a beautiful city, apart from trying to avoid being killed by people on bikes. So. Many. Bikes. I want to go again and see what I couldn’t before. It’s probably my favourite place. I wouldn’t have been able to explore so much of it if I hadn’t met these gorgeous people. Because of them, I caught the travel bug – I want to visit so many cities and so many countries, it’s just my dream.
But I haven’t talked to these people in a while, which is a shame. Most of them have left university now and graduated so the chances are that I won’t ever speak to them again. This trip inspired me to travel more, and I will in the future at some point. Who knows what the future will hold.
