Happy Halloween!

Although there are no trick-or-treaters in Holland, the 31st of October is still a night for mischief, tricks, and ample treats – you just have to know where to find them ;) This year B and I booked tickets to the Nightmare on the Rozengracht, a pop-up haunted house in Amsterdam’s very own Boom Chicago. IMG_4851Upon arriving we were given a number – our one-way ticket into a house filled with horror and spook. While we waited to be summoned, we were serenaded by creepy tunes, surrounded by dancing ghouls and demons.

To be fair, I was slightly preoccupied anyways, looking over my shoulder, trying not to get snagged by hands or other terrors groping in the dark. It was an awesome experience, one I would definitely recommend and did not expect to find in the Netherlands!

When B and I got home, we continued our Halloween festivities by carving a pumpkin.

  1. I must offer this caption for the photo of you holding the carved pumpkin in front of your own noggin, Ali: Oh, no, not another bright idea for Oct. 31! Thanks for the fun pictures.


    1. Haha I had a good laugh when I read that!! To be honest, it did not cross my mind at the time, but now every time I look at him sitting on the kitchen table, all I can think is ‘blow up doll’!
