Ok...the whole story is like this: Remember our bestest friends .. Vangelis and Sofia? You don't?
K...Sofia and I met in 1981, when both our families were the first to buy apartments in the same building. She lived inthe first floor, I lived in the 3rd. We have been close ever since, sister close actually :)
Vangelis and I met when I was 13 or 14. We had summer houses in the same area, spent all summers together.
I introduced them when we were 16. He fell in love instantly. She did not. They got together when she was 23. They have been together for 13 years. Happily married the last ten :)
Angelos (my husband) met Sofia when he was 14. They went to school together. She introduced him to me. You know the rest :)
Sofia has a shop selling antique and second hand furniture, imported mainly from Holland.
She started the "YouGottaShopInAmsterdamInFebruarySales" epidemy.
But they will be going to Amsterdam on Jan. 27 to Feb. 1st. Because she has to spend a day in her provider's village ordering some stuff for her shop. And he is going away on January 2nd. So she had to go at that days.
Now Angelos is a driving instructor. That started teaching prospect driving instructors for their exams just 6 weeks ago. Now this is a promotion for him and I am so happy :) BUT! Because the exams will take place on weekends, and examinees have to be examined in all kinds of vehicles, Angelos knows that for certain he will have exams with them till the 23 of January, and there are 50% that he will have exams till the 30 as well!
This is how we ended up going from the 3rd to the 8th of February.
HOWEVER...hehehe...Sofia called me this morning with a brilliant idea. She said that I should call our travel agent, and make him book flights for us for both periods. Angelos will know by the 20th if he has exams on the 30 or not.
So I did! And our magician of a travel agent did some tricks, so now we are booked for both dates :))))
I have 50% turning 36 in Amsterdam, with my two bestest firends and my superbestest man!!!!
The worse that can happen is to go to Amsterdam just a week late :)))) With another couple of good friends that are going just for this weekend.
I am crazy and I love it!
