Getaways don’t have to be out of the country, nor the city even. A trip to the zoo is easily planned, even if it’s just for an hour or two.Being a student in Amsterdam has its perks. Besides the usual student discount at various stores, hairdressers and museums, I can visit the zoo for a nickel. And as classes become more pressing on my schedule (and stress-level!), a few hours among animals soothes my mind.
We searched for the jaguars, but apparently the enclosure wasn’t up yet. Gazing at the cute baby giraffe, watching a dramatic love triangle between three reptiles and walking with red lemurs made up for that small disappointment. Luckily, the cold was easy on me that day. I could easily get around in just my jacket, but I did need a heavy scarf to wrap myself in. Not that that was any kind of punishment, because it’s so soft and warm. So all together, I had my little escape from everyday student life, being able to focus again.
That being said, I’m ready for another productive week!
Hope you’re having a great monday.
