Before I start writing about my favorite lunch and coffee places in Amsterdam, I have to say that this is gonna be a bit long post since I have spent 3 days in Amsterdam visiting really yummy hotspots and I want to share all of them with you. 
 
First of all, I want to highlight that Amsterdam in July is absolutely amazing (in general it is always beautiful, but the sunny weather shows the best of the city). I went to walk around the canals and enjoy the views during the 3 days and it was a great experience! So, if you have a chance to visit Amsterdam during summer, don't think two times, just do it! 

Since I'm on vacation, and I have a lot of free time, I try to visit some hot spots and I want to share them wish you. 
For now, I'm in Belgium and I'm moving between Knokke, Antwerp and Brussels. In today's post I'm gonna show you a very interesting place I discovered in the center of Antwerp. Wasbar is a bar-restaurant and a place to do the laundry: you can have a lunch, or just a drink meanwhile waiting for your laundry. You can also go just for a drink, without necessarily bringing the dirty clothes ;)) The place is full of washing machines, soaps and detergents. The design is very original and beautiful! I really loved the concept.

It is definitely the city of freedom and one of my favourite places I have visited so far. 
Many people consider Amsterdam as the city of canals, tulips, coffeeshops and Red Light district, but the truth is that this city is much more than this: It offers a wide variety of museums, being the most important ones Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum, and also countless art galleries. The architecture of the city is absolutely fascinating, mixing the beautiful small houses with 165 canals and 1.500 bridges. 

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably know that one of my favorite beaches of Valencia is la Playa de Almardá, located in the north, 30 minutes away from the capital (by car). I usually go there to enjoy the dunes and the protected beaches of this area. 
Last October, meanwhile my trip in Spain, decided to stay during the weekend at Almardá, in one of the most beautiful hotels of the area, Els Arenals. It's a boutique hotel on the coast, located just in front of the beach. The weather was a little bit strange, changing in every half an hour, but I still had fun in the amazing outdoor pool with the chill out bar. When it was raining, I stayed in my very beautiful and huge suite, with an amazing view on the beach. 

I remember speaking with a web designer I had collaborated with on a few projects about a sabbatical that he took a while back. He had felt himself burning out and decided that he wanted to take six months totally away from his job. Now, few of us can just walk away from our work for half a year, but he planned it out and made preparations so that he could make it happen. He looked hard at his budget and made some changes so he could save some money and give himself a cushion that would allow him to go without any income during his time off. He admitted to me that it was difficult, but workable, and he did take that time off after about a year of working and saving.
