You haven’t been able to see much of my Summer of 50 Challenge since I announced it last week, but that is because I was in Prague with some friends, celebrating the fact that we finished the first year of college! We saw a lot of this beautiful city, we had a pick-nick in the park, we went dancing in a nice club, and I SAW THE TFIOS MOVIE! The release date of this movie in the Netherlands was initially set on June 6th, but they pushed it back to July 10th! That is more than a month! I was really disappointed when I found out, but then I remembered that I would be in the Czech Republic for a few days, where the movie was already out.

But as you might have figured out already, I have watched the trailer now and I absolutely love it!
