It was a successful launch last night at the 38HOURS travel magazine launch in Amsterdam. Everyone cycled along to the at Tommy Truelove vintage store where the event was held and local Brouwerij ‘t Ij ale flowed freely.
Guests spoke about the love for travel and we we happy to meet readers of our blog which we are always a little chuffed about!
The style of the store inspiring vintage-styled attire to the evening.

Arriving to parties by bike is super fun, but balancing a handful of balloons flying around can get slightly challenging. This family of 4 seemed to handle it nicely! Happy days..
“Hallo mooie dame, you’d look nice on the back of my bike.”
“I really need a good rack for my bike, yours would be perfect.”
What do you think?
Dressed to the nines with black heels and all, this VANMOOF dame is heading out on the town!
Whichever way you like to call it, in my opinion it’s the only way to ride. We certainly have thought of multiple ways to get to liven up the journey to get to work!
Some people pass the time, others make the best of it. Racers have made a comeback and even though those skinny little tyres don’t agree with the width of those tram tracks and cobblestones, they are a super fun way to get around. This Amsterdammer is just soaking up the sun on a chilly summers day, next to his wheels just waiting for a friend..
Sometimes you just wanna hitch a ride with your Dad. Best view in town!
Nowadays, when a baby is born, it is not only the mother who switches from full time to part time work, but also Daddy works less. Many modern Dutch fathers want to actively participate in raising their kids. So the phenomenon of the ‘Daddy Day (papadag)’ came into existence; one fixed day a week, it is Daddy time! Also in my little family we embrace this trend. We both work four days a week and Friday is our Daddy Day. That is the day that my boyfriend hangs around in the playground playing with our son and drinking coffee from is thermos, that they visit my grandma-in-law or that they meet up with his friends and kids who also have a Daddy Day on Friday.
On Daddy Day, mom is at work, sometimes wanting to join in the fun, but most of the time just being happy that Daddy and child are having a great time together.

In Amsterdam, everybody finds his own way around. It’s a happy chaos sometimes. Amsterdammers are used to it, especially in the city center where the chance to bump into a friend is big!
