Another Soggy Day In Amsterdam
I doubt there is much rain left in the rest of the world, as it’s all falling in Amsterdam! Doing our best to keep spirits up and the adventures continuing in spite of the incessant, relentless, at times torrential, rain.
We made our way to the Hermitage Amsterdam to take in the exhibit 1917 Romanovs & Revolution. Vince has always been a big fan of the Russian Romanov dynasty so this was a fantastic opportunity to see this unique exhibit of the actual Romanov artifacts. The timing for us seeing this exhibit was perfect as it closes on September 17.
We then moved on to Museumplein, which is a huge public space in the Museum Quarter of Amsterdam. The square houses three major museums – the Rijksmuseum, the van Gogh Museum and the Stedelijk Museum.
Leaving the Museumplein we hopped a canal boat tour, which is a must-do activity when visiting Amsterdam. The view from the canal added quite a different perspective to the scenery.
