Amsterdam, sailing, swimming and fun on the Vinkeveense Plassen

vinkeveense plassen

During summertime we like to go sailing and swimming on the Vinkeveense Plassen (Lakes of Vinkeveen) with Margré's sailing boat or with Desiré's motor boat. Our boats are in the harbor called Jachthaven Bon (Marina Bon). This time we went out sailing with Margré's Flytour. The name of her boat is 'Demoiselle'. A blue sky, warm water and a lot of sunshine were perfect ingredients for us to leave the harbor of Jachthaven Bon, situated near the Vinkeveense Plassen. This lake is not far from the hussle and bustle of the capital of the Netherlands: Amsterdam. A perfect place to relax and enjoy wind, water and sun. If you want to rent a small boat (even possible with a picnic arrangement) or you want a boat with a captain, you can contact Jachthaven Bon. You can enjoy the Vinkeveense Plassen for hours. There are a lot of small private islands in the lake. But some of the islands are public, so you can stay there for a while to picnic or to dive in the clear water. Worth a visit on a nice warm summer day when you want to escape the busy city of Amsterdam for a while.

Shopping in Amsterdam

Amsterdam stores

Today I went shopping in my favorite city Amsterdam.
You definitely should pay a visit to the Bijenkorf when it has its craziest sale! (Three crazy days / drie dwaze dagen).
Luckily it was not so crowded, like you would have expected. Books, jewelry, coffee machines etc… almost everything is marked down! I also love the & Other Stories Shop! They sell pretty cool stuff there for a reasonable price. After this wonderful afternoon, I went back home satisfied with my purchases!
