I'm back from Benelux very much alive and happy. The only downside to this Benelux trip is that I'VE GOT SUNBURNT!!! Bloody hell... The weather forecast said the temperature was 16-20°C, but but but it turned out to be like 22-30°C. It was so freaking hot, that I almost died somewhere in Amsterdam. It wasn't that bad in Luxembourg even though I already had wanted to buy a skirt to wear instead of keeping my long pants on. I had to buy a top in Brussels because I didn't pack enough clothes, two tops for four days in 16-20°C is more than enough, but definitely not enough for 22-30°C. I couldn't find nice skirts in Brussels, ended up buying a skirt in Utrecht before going to Amsterdam. Lucky for me, Amsterdam was so so so freaking hot at 30°C.
Yes, I'm from Singapore, and I'm used to 30°C, but you don't ever see me in long pants in Singapore, never. I like wearing skirts, and immediately after changing into the skirt, and with my sleeveless tops, it's almost like my normal attire. The clothes I wore to Konstanz is definitely not my normal attire. The Konstanz trip and the Benelux trip was like only two days apart and the temperature difference was like 20°C... What the heck...
