I wrote this a few years ago in a previous post –
Oftentimes I find myself craving art (and beauty). In this world of brutes and atrocities, it’s important to nourish the soul and feel uplifted and inspired. Thank goodness for art, artists and museums. Can you imagine a world without art? It would be a dark and desolate place … a sort of Trumpland, bleak and vacuous.
This is a perfect opportunity to return to The Netherlands. Some of the paintings in this new exhibition (at the Rijksmuseum), I saw at the Mauritshuis in the summer of 2017. That was a lovely trip.
For two hotel recommendations in Amsterdam, a visit to the magnificent Rijksmuseum and the Mauritshuis, and an account of my purchase of cannabis in a legalized coffeeshop, I invite you to visit my previous trips to Holland by clicking on this link below. I can’t wait to go back.
How I envy you, dear Juliet, as you jump on express trains and criss-cross Europe visiting art museums and partaking in all things urbane and European.
Hi PC. I admit that I do love Europe and all the culture and delights it has to offer. I’ve always loved train travel too and European trains are great.
Heading to Amsterdam next month. Quick trip so I appreciate your posts to help me plan.
That’s great! I hope you won’t have a problem finding a hotel. I imagine that with the influx of tourists, it might be hard to find a room. In any case, have a super time! And enjoy the exhibition, if you are able to catch it.
I found one about a month ago. Wow! Prices there are much higher than in Paris. I guess I should think about ordering tickets to the exhibit now. Thanks for the heads up. I’ve been so busy, I’ve not given enough thought to my trip.
