Amsterdam sisters-2

A week ago I spent a little weekend in Amsterdam with my sister. I 'm preparing an article with addresses that I have visited and avenues for the next few days ;)
We realized that it was the first time we were going on a weekend together. Thirty years that we are sisters, and we had never programmed anything like this.

We are very close, we has always been. As teens we were sharing the same room and all our stories. We were arguing a lot but we were friends despite the little tyranny that I had instaured between our four walls (She used to call me Hitler when I crossed the line). We listened to CDs 2 tracks in loop on Wednesday afternoon and were doing the spice girls' choregraphies in the desert on Say You'll Be There.

Having divorced parents made us very close I think, my constant was my sister, When we went for holidays with mom or dad we were always together, It is the only person whom I have almost never been separated.

But I was still the “big sister” and it took me years, of arguing and lots of personal work to consider her as a great person and stop thinking that I was necessarily an ascendant on her. It took me time to stop imposing her my vision of things or my way of doing and to consider that she also had things to teach me

There are also these 6 month where she had gone to live in Berlin where I was really separated from her for the first time who finally cut the cord of the big sister.


I do not know if it is the same for all couples of brothers and sisters, but, If the youngest needs the greatest when it is a child to have a template and tips, I know that growing up it is the oldest that often has an unconscious needs that the youngest needs him. It took me longer than my sister to cut this invisible thread.

Maybe it's the reason it took us so long to imaging that going on 2 a week end abroad only both of us would be a good idea. Maybe we needed to feel confortable and pretty safe that it would be natural, the first few times much condition the following and I think that we will be able to redo a package of week-ends both ;)

    J’adore ton article. Lot of things real <3 My little sister has gone to live in Argentina away from everything or almost. I do not know when I see again… J'ai d'autres frères et soeurs, but my accomplice, ma "jumelle" (There are 7 years difference but back on confused us) c'était elle. But she is very happy bottom, c'est le principal.

    It's always complicated siblings! Human relations in General, but particularly the family…

    This story looks like us on quite a point, and I quite agree with your vision of things on the way in which one lives its fraternal relationship with time. Is this not Morgane and Anaïs? In any case the idea of a WE between sister tempts me well!!

  6. 25 January 2016 at 13:49

    well, looks like the fashion bloggers are like sisters ;O) (I know that you do not like the term, but OK, I try the joke)

  7. 25 January 2016 at 13:52

    You had a good weekend & This kind of moments closer :)
    It is true that I am always well heard with my little brother but we are never really left both somewhere ! I am sure that it could be nice ! I live in Paris only for a few months & He came to visit me a day this summer. He does not know the capital so I had made her visit & We spent very good time !

    In any case I look forward to your article on Amsterdam because we spend 4 days in February with my parents & my brother just !

    Everything depends on our character and I think that with the years it softens (fortunately) ;-)
    Your sister is really pretty, I love the first photo and you have a beautiful air of family .

  9. 25 January 2016 at 14:06

    This is a nice statement which makes it.
    I too am the great and today I realize that it is often me who needs my little brother…

  10. 25 January 2016 at 14:18

    Je suis, From afar, the little sister and I have indeed cut first this thread and told when this relationship between sisters asked me too. My sister saw him badly and likes to make me feel guilty, completely unconsciously obviously ;-) There is obviously something special between us ! But we are repeatedly party together when I was a teen or young adult.

  11. 25 January 2016 at 14:20

    Ah… the relationship between sisters. I could gladly speak about long ! So many memories, conversations, Exchange. Often, I realized how I had the chance to have my big sister in the child's life.
    I remember a very sad comeback for me… Re-entry where she was party to do his graduate studies out of my hometown. I also remember our beautiful reunion… exciting holiday past together and traveled from.
    I have the impression that you are going to repeat this type of weekend as soon as you will have the opportunity. Good ! You are very sweet, On the photos.

    Bonne journée !

  12. 25 January 2016 at 14:25

    Oh but yes go with her sister is super !
    I agree with your sentiment of elder, and I confess that today ' today I play sometimes Big Sisters while she has two children and me, not (Ah also is moving to see its p'tite sister MOM !) :)

  13. 25 January 2016 at 14:41

    But Darling family is also hell, then as I understand you. You have the same look both, one of those told frank with a bit more playfulness can be in yours ;-) But she was a little intimidated by the objective of the big sister. I spent just the WE with one of my little brothers that I had not seen for a long time, We live away from each other but I want more now, and also want to visit Amsterdam, the House of Anne Franck with emotion, Surely a next trip.

    This is very nicely said.

    I am doing a home Exchange in Amsterdam in April for the feast of the King, I look forward to discovering your address to get your appetite !

    This post makes me much pleasure because I am also the eldest of 2 year difference with my sister. US too, We were doing the chore on the Spice Girls, or Britney Spears ;)
    And in recent years, relations are much more difficult. makes me so happy to read what you write and it gives me courage to reflect on myself and hope that our relations are improving and that we can also consider starting a weekend every two. Merci !

    Hihi my little sister (and incidentally my parents) also call me Hitler… or Stalin at the option. It's always fun !

    The relationship between brother and sister is super important. I am fortunate to have a big brother. We are close but not the kind we call every day. We love without saying it is but we know. When we were teenagers there was going on vacation at an uncle and an aunt in Normandy. It ran from Lorraine and passage through Paris involved to take the subway. He was paying attention to me, to ensure that I was fine porticos, was the bag,… I'm lucky to have.

    very nice story of sisters. I really like.

    Hehe… I remember that you had done the Nice super photos she, She had a large library, am pleased to discover its charming bouille, stupidly I imagined redhead… Bref, from my side I'm a middle sister between a large and a small brother. I remember very well, toward 20 years old, while I was crossing a pass really very very difficult, me be collapsed in the living room in the arms of my big brother. We were in conflict since adolescence because it chaperonnait me too and encroached on the place of the padre. I don't let myself do and could not stand his paternalism which yet left a good feeling… That day, When finally I quit the flange and let myself go in his arms, He me curiously finally seen as a great and I finally learned to trust him. It gave the clock to the time, We were becoming adult and could tell us about peer-to-peer. I would me hand to my brothers and measure my chance to have a family on that count… Happy you and happy bridge's sister, I wish you still a quintal of breathtaking sororelles Getaways.

    In terms of separation, I have the emotional memory of the horrible (for you) snow from your sister class, where did us you cum during 3 semaines, looking sadly at a photo of your sister that you had hooked a small calendar with you enrayais days… :-)

      Oh but it then if it's not love ! :Adorable D

      Hahaha Yes it's true :D

    I go back this morning for a weekend with my sister; the first two alone …and it was awesome. We have thirty both and we'd want to spend a little time both, so at Christmas I offered him the ticket.
    So much that it reflects from sets a week on holiday in February March. We are so different, but there is better and better with time passing. We learn to tolerate differences which are for us wealth. I would always be her little sister, and yet always I feel that I have to watch over it. My husband will can be difficult to understand that we be both, But moments past sets (followed by discussions on life and our life before falling asleep are a gift of life! )I totally understand your post, it resonates in me :p

    Super article Elodie, I love hearing people tell their relationships with their brothers and sisters. I too am sister and my problem is that sometimes I forget that my little sister who has 24 years old (I have 33) is now an adult. It still happens to me to hand to cross the road, The poor. I do not even express, It's just a reflex, I've always had used to take care of it. Petite, I would take it with me everywhere and it is always remained super close since, especially since we lost our father. Par contre, It is the more ' Hitler’ of two, I am the type to just cede…

    This is a post that touches me a lot ! I have a sister, We are very close, We have always been… And I am familiar with the syndrome of the “big sister”, because I 10 years older than she. Be confident of always being right and having him learn things, and not the reverse ! A 32 years old, I just beginning to understand what you speak… En tous cas, in summer 2014, We are parties 10 days in Istanbul, our first vacation of sisters “in adults”. This summer, It was London… It is already considering the next trip… It promised that one day where there is sub, to be the tour of the theme parks in Florida all the 2. Even to 60 and 50 piges, non mais ;) Thanks again for this nice article.

    This is too cute… Serious it's great to be close to his brothers and sisters! I have an older sister of 2 years my elder and a younger brother that has 4 years younger than me and ben strangely I was always closer to my little brother. It got much lack of shared stuff of girl with my sister. I would have liked to have it guide me and everything. But OK. I have a great relationship with my brother this is also awesome!

    Your article speaks to me !
    My sister goes on his 31 and me 29
    It was very accomplices teens, spice girls, 2BE3, the revelations of the evening, the row
    She was also tyrannical, Maniac and me messy, I poked him his clothes in hiding because they were always more beautiful than mine, It is reflected and pétaient pellets.
    I had finished by pasting a picture of Tiger on her door and she had left her ;-)
    It is also a party 1 year abroad for his studies it has somewhat remote at the time, “cut the cord” as you say, I had taken, the time of a year, the place of the elder.
    A few years ago in its initiative was a spa weekend in Deauville, I had fears and almost cancel but it was very well ! but not remade since ! I should be !
    Now she is pregnant but I had a child before her a year ago, so now it is reversed it is calling me to ask Council.
    I find it odd sometimes and I am afraid of the upset,
    It is good to have your point of view, I never thought that it could please him to have a shoulder on which to rest !
    ps : your sister is all cabbage and like you much physically about different !

  30. 29 January 2016 at 8:14

    Je t’envie!
    My sister is no longer there since 2 years now, and I'm slowly learning to live without it. You have accomplices air, and well start you, keep it, maintain maximum, It is so precious!
    Nice pictures!

    Amsterdam is also the city where we were left with my sister for our first weekend in head to head… there are 12 years ago !
    Since London has been, 2 cities we love all the 2.
    I believe that my sister is the person who can annoy me the most (and the faster) and also one that can make me more laugh, It sums up our relationship :-)

  32. 1 February 2016 at 16:16

    Bravo pour cet article, It is both too true and too cabbage…. to prevent that now I have the spice girls in the head
