During the past week I have barely seen the inside of my own home. At the beginning of the week we travelled north so I could attend a concert. Then Thursday saw us at a hotel in Gatwick ahead of our trip to France on Friday. This trip to my apartment in the south of France is about getting some pre-season maintenance done. That has meant painting, buying and putting together a new sofa bed rather than anything kinky. So it hasn’t been easy to find time to take photos for this month’s Sinful Sunday prompt of humour. However we were having fun and being playful when Master took these photos on Monday evening in Manchester. The room really was beautiful, it’s a shame we didn’t get to spend more time there. Maybe next time…..
This is the third year that I have participated in Blogging A-Z. This year i am going to try to make my topics a little more mainstream. They will, however clearly link to kink and may on occasion be NSFW.
A is for Amsterdam
Amsterdam is important to Master and I for many reasons. For him it is a place he went to work during a difficult time in life, but it is a place of many happy memories. Work may have been challenging at times, but he learned the language (as much as is possible for an English person) and he explored much more of the country than is usual. Sex was important part of his life at that time, something he explored through the sex workers he met during that time. One of those lovely ladies is now a friend to us both, her life is different now. But our friendship was created through theirs in the late 90’s.
I have some fantastic memories of our trips to that wonderful city. It is interesting to visit a city such as Amsterdam with someone who knows it so well. This means that we steer clear of the most tourist focused areas, including most of the red light district and pubs. Instead we have a few favourite restaurants and bars and explore great canal areas, buildings and galleries. On one trip we travelled out to Otterlo, home of the Kröller-Müller museum and Hoge Veluwe National Park. We cycled around the park in early spring and visited the wonderful collection of paintings including many by Van Gough.
We have stayed in some beautiful hotel rooms in Amsterdam, a boutique hotel where I tried my first dutch gin in the little honesty bar. A huge room with its own large jacuzzi bath and sauna. As well the hotel for our trip in December, before our stay got extended due to the snow.
