Autumn is gradually conquering Amsterdam. The springy buds make way for golden leaves and the city’s house facades merge in the grey setting.
It’s my favourite time of year. An introvert soul, I enjoy these cosy days at home, reading books under the blanket, wearing knitted pullovers and socks, sipping on hot teas and strong coffees and turning on Netflix now and then. It’s all about those slow, quiet moments.
And slow breakfasts. A Sunday starting with a stack of homemade buckwheat pancakes with late-summer blackberries next to a cup of Chemex coffee sounds like a pretty perfect Sunday to me.
And because I’m very outgoing from time to time, I’m wandering the streets of Amsterdam these days indulging in the quietness and peaceful monotony it sheds at this time of year.
