This evening a recap of my life in the month of July! The month beheld the last weeks of study before the summer break and it beheld the first days of my holiday in Edinburgh.
As I have written in the previous recap of the month of June 2017, the first weeks of July were pretty stressful. The last exams of the year, the last weeks of a semester project of the year and I called it in short: the last chances of whatever-needed-to-be-finished of the year.
This month – except for my holiday – I have not visited a lot of events. Just let go the stress, enjoy the piece and sunshine in the few days between the last days of study of the year and my holiday.
Now and then I walked to the Cruise Terminal area, Hotel New York and the little park at the point of the pier. Watched the Queen Elizabeth cruiseship leaving the city. Twice this month in fact haha. The first time I just made a bunch of photos also because of the beautiful sunset. I was way too early before the ship left so had a drink from Hotel New York at the pier and waited, just enjoyed the quietness and the breeze at the point. The second time this cruiseship was visiting the city for a day and was leaving again, I made a little video. How lovely to see how many people, families, acquaintances or just interested people wave goodbyes to all the persons on board. With a ‘See you soon again!’ accompanied of course.

See you next time again! ⚓️🛳 #Rotterdam #QueenElizabeth #Cunard #cruises #harbour #PortofRotterdam #cruiseship #summertime #sunset #summernightcity #loveit #vrr #veiligheidsregiorotterdamrijnmond #montevideo #nhow #derotterdam #hotelnewyork #sophievda
Halfway the month I received bookmail as well and reviewed it shortly afterwards. The book is written by Max Rippe and this is the third novel in a series but you can read it as a standalone book too. You can read the full review here –> A Deadly Run-Off – Max Rippe. Have you read this book? What do you think of the story?

Thank you B for Books and Max Rippe for letting me know 🙂 Review will be online after I finished it. This book is the sequel of De Handlanger [NL]/The Accomplice [EN] – Max Rippe.

Only one week left before my study break would finally start and a little less than two weeks left before I went on holiday. Ooh now the study stress was turning into a holiday excitement.
Right before I went on holiday to Edinburgh, I had to visit the zoo again. Walking through the park and discover the wonderful habits of the animals. On this day I posted on Instagram a film of the littlest of the elephants who started to practice his trumpet skills and played with water on a brightful sunny day.
The little one of the Indian elephant family in Diergaarde Blijdorp. This little one is gonna be a wise grown-up. The animal that values family, is eager to learn and just appreciates a good lovely sunny day! #elephant #wisdom #animallove #diergaardeblijdorp #indianelephant #rotterdamzoo #loveanimals #lovelymemory #appreciatetheday #afternoonwalk #june #throwback #growingup #splashing #waterfun #springafternoon #zoofriday #fridayafternoon #sophievda
