German & Dutch December Impressions

Most of December we were away spending the Christmas month with our families and also visited Amsterdam for a few days. Below you can find some impressions from our travels.

Getting ready

The last week here in Amsterdam is approaching before heading to Barcelona. As I was asked by many people if I will do a blog about my sabbatical I really gave it a thought and took the first steps to start it! So later on I will keep you posted about the sabbatical life and will also publish a small guide for planning a sabbatical – in case anyone of you may want to do the same in the future!
