Halloween at the Amsterdam Dungeon

As I mentioned in my weekly wrap upΒ I went to the Amsterdam Dungeon on Halloween. It was my eight time, but the last time I was there was three years ago so quite a few things had changed! It was just as fun (if not more) than the previous times. If you’re not familiar with the concept (I know there are several other Dungeons in Europe, like in London and Berlin): youΒ go through several rooms, all dedicated to a piece of gruesome history of Amsterdam. Basically it’s informative, funny and scary at the same time. I definitely recommend it!

In honour of Halloween they would be open until the next morning, but we didn’t go that late haha. We did have to stand in queue for two hours, but it wasn’t too cold and we had fun since a lot of people in costume passed us haha. I was so excited to see how many people were dressed up! It’s still nothing like in America, but maybe in a few years we’ll really celebrate Halloween here as well.

When we finally got inside we got our picture taken (after debating several times who’d be beheaded while still in queue haha).

After that we had to wait a bit inside until we had an entire group and then we really entered. I won’t tell you guys that many details (that won’t be fun in case you decide to go yourself!). In every room they tell you a story, but they also pick someone from the audience. Since I was wearing Stitch ears I figured they’d definitely pick me, so I took them off haha. I still got picked though.

But it was all good. As soon as she learned I was from Amsterdam I got to go back (while the audience had to boo Amsterdam). My mom was laughing so hard- like thanks for your support Mom.

Okay I have to admit I laughed really hard a few years ago when she was picked (in the same room even haha), but ssh.

There were two new rooms (since I was last there), one that was dedicated to the witch burnings. A girl who was dressed up as Wednesday Addams was ‘burned’ which I thought was pretty ironic haha. I won’t tell you guys anything about the last room (*River Song voice* Spoilers!), but I will show you this picture:

Look at my cousin’s face

Anyway, I had a lot of fun that night! I hope you guys all had a great Halloween too. If you have any questions about the Amsterdam Dungeon, let me know! If you don’t think you’ll ever go to the Amsterdam Dungeon and want to know what’s going on in the last photo, let me know as well!Β

FIRST TERM IS OVER

Well, unofficially. We still have the presentation of our magazine this Thursday, BUT I DON’T HAVE TO DO ANYTHING

THAT’S RIGHT GUYS NO SCHOOL OR SCHOOLWORK FOR ME FOR OVER A WEEK (except for Thursday. But Thursday should be fun)

If you don’t follow me on Twitter, or if you missed it, here’s what our magazine looks like:

With our magazine we want to show the world that disabled people aren’t their disabilities. It’s not actually going to be published, but I still think it’s important!

BUT ANYWAY I DON’T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT A THING. EXCEPT NANOWRIMO. But I’m not going to worry about that, it’s supposed to be fun! I never got to do NaNo before as I always had a testweek in November, but now my exams were in October so I should be able to do it! Hopefully haha. If you’re also doing NaNo, add meΒ as a writing buddy and watch me fail! Just kidding. I hope to at least finish translating The Army of Quermo into English (of course I’d love to finish it too, but I do have school to worry about!)

ALSO IT’S HALLOWEEN Β (yeah this post is all over the place. THERE’S JUST SO MUCH TO TELL YOU GUYS I MISSED YOU ALL EVEN THOUGH I WASN’T COMPLETELY GONE I WASN’T ON AS MUCH AS I WANTED TO)

Let’s hope no troll ruins your party!

I’m going to the Amsterdam Dungeon with my mom and cousin tonight, which should be fun! I wonder if they added something new since the last time I was there (this will be my eighth time haha). I’m not sure how I’ll dress yet, though I think it will be Harry Potter related!

Anyway! These coming days of freedom I will read a lot of blogs and write some blog posts myself (and of course participate in NaNo)! I want to schedule plenty so that I won’t have to disappear again. Tomorrow I’ll finally do another weekly wrap up, in which I’ll tell you guys more about what happened these past few weeks (I think it will be a wrap up for the last three weeks? It has been too long!). Oh hey! Tomorrow will be November, so I guess I’ll combine my weekly wrap up with the monthly one!

What are you guys going to do for Halloween? Or what did you do if the day is already over? Are you participating in NaNo? Let me know in the comments!
