At Düsseldorf train station heading to Amsterdam
Let me first write that H is the man. He doesn't usually tell me what to do so I often feel like I'm in charge of where we go or see. That changes a little when we are on trips together and he pretty much decides our itinerary. I also need to add that when he wants something there is no stopping him. I can try to persuade him otherwise but it will usually lead to an argument or us not speaking. You might have heard about Kuwaiti men and how they can do the "ignore treatment" from time to time? Luckily H knows better now after learning his lesson that I have mastered it and can now out ignore him.
So, back to my post. We were having dinner and I was thinking in my head how can I sneak a bottle of German Rhine Wine into my hotel room without him catching me when he blurts out, "We are going to Amsterdam tomorrow." Uh, WTH? Why when we have both been many times? Then he answers me with, "Because we haven't been together or since I fell in love with you." I'm thinking in my head how romantic of him to say yet so boring to go with him to one of the wildest places on earth. This is because he won't do anything wild at all or let me. Not to mention the time wasted on the train travel there and back.
I started to immediately have visions of me going to the train bathroom to chug tiny bottles of wine and then brushing my teeth before he kisses me. I mean come on readers, we can't drink legally in Kuwait so I'm not opposed to drinking in toilets to avoid the dirty look from my future non drinking husband. ;)
Well, of course we got on the train the next day and off to Amsterdam we went. There wasn't any puff puff pass, space cakes or drinking delicious Dutch beer in a bar. We did have coffee and some stroopwaffels that are traditional Dutch treats and magically delicious.
The famous Gassan Diamond factory and boutique where they give daily tours.
Diamond locations around the world.
Walking around on the tour.
Romantic walks around Amsterdam where we can actually kiss and hug in public like a 'real' couple.
We had a great time together in Amsterdam and H surprised me at the end of our Gassan diamond factory tour by letting me pick out one of the highest quality, near flawless diamond rings from their boutique for my Eid gift. It was a total surprise and no Mom, I didn't even expect anything or hint. ;p
I LOVE Amsterdam and my H! <3
