Amsterdam here we come
After not much to report of late we are preparing for our latest home exchange. This time our destination is Amsterdam, Netherlands. Our base during this trip will be near the Museumkwartier, within walking distance of the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum and the Stedelijk. After much cleaning, cleaning and more cleaning, we are on our way, and after our red-eye flight we arrive in Amsterdam. Our first day is rather slow after we recover from our jet lag, our visit to a local pub for supper left us waiting discussing returning for kick-off as we have already felt the World Cup fever which is gripping the entire city.
We spent some time checking our the streets and canals that so define this wonderful city. We located our nearest market that is just on the other side of our nearest main street, and among the pleasures of this market was a stall selling nothing but wonderful mushrooms and fungi of every every description.
Stay tuned for Day 2 as Karen removes a couple of items from her life’s bucket list.
