A trend in Amsterdam that I am definitely on board with is “High Wine.” The Dutch like to partake in the tradition of High Tea, but we soon began to see menus for High Wine, as well.

High Wine is pretty much a cross between High Tea and Happy Hour, but a little earlier and with a touch more sophistication. So it goes without saying that I could get a couple of friends together for a nice afternoon High Wine.

I’m off for a few days for some much needed relaxation at the cabin. The only plan is to eat, sleep, drink, read, water ski, repeat.

Hopefully you have time to do some of the same during this holiday week!

Catch you later!
