CB: Views From Amsterdam & Eric

Commercial Break

Look what we have here, another Commercial Break, and just a week after the previous one! Your girl is improving her blogging skills and getting used to the time management stuff. Though, still no reviews but I promise, I’m on a mission to get at least 5 written by next week!

Last week was… pretty f*cking eventful. The week begun with 2,5 days in Amsterdam which was amazing! I loved it, the architecture, the vibe, the boat trip on the canals. Definitely among my favourite destinations so far. Which makes 2018 hell of a great year for trips! But I’m going to insert a few pictures here now because I took so many good ones.

Otherwise I’m slowly starting to feel the holiday vibes. I have my lights up, I have packed a few Christmas presents, and I’m looking forward to going home for almost a week. I’m pretty sure I’m just going to lounge around, eat Christmas food and watch a lot of movies – but that’s exactly how I like my holidays anyway.

I saw only one movie last week, which was Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which I loved! It’s definitely one of my favourites this year and hands down the coolest animated movie I’ve seen in a very long time. It feels like a step up in the animation world and gives the Spider-Man universe a whole new meaning.

With shows, I kept watching Will & Grace, which I didn’t get far with because.. And this is hilarious actually, I started rewatching Travelers. The third season came out and I decided to rewatch the first two seasons. Why not, right? So that means I’m literally watching two Eric McCormack shows at the same time. Which is exactly what I wanted!

I do want to continue with The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel this month too, since its second season came out. Then I have a whole list of other shows I need to get to because end of the year lists are upon us.

But like I recently mentioned, I think I’m pushing my lists into 2019. Not going to rush them like I did last year because I don’t want to look back and think, damn, I should have seen that movie before making the list!

Been listening to the same songs, and been still reading Factfulness. But I also got Mariana Zapata’s newest book Luna and the Lie, which apparently is alright. My flatmate read it already, and now I’m putting it off a bit. I know I will like it, but since From Lukov With Love, I expect a lot from Zapata.

    I’m so jealous! I’m going to Amsterdam in June and I cannot wait. I love the photos you took. I hope I come across something equally as cute lol.

    I loved Into The Spider-Verse as well.

    God, I’ve been so bad at reading this year. It’s pathetic. I need to fix that. I always say that to myself when I read your Commercial Breaks.

    Thanks for the link!

      Oh you’re gonna love it! It’s so amazing, especially the old part of the city, and not the new buildings.. Definitely, if you have funds, take the boat trip. We had a private boat but there are bigger ones for tourists and it’s like the coolest way to see the city imo.

      I love love love Spider-Verse, I need to watch it again and again!

      You are welcome!
