So, in case you're interested, here are some of the highlights of my week. I'll be following up with some recommendations, and packing/travel tips later this week. Cheers!
We spent Thursday through Saturday in London, my favorite city.
The courtyard of the V&A
Painting to commemorate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee
The most iconic views are in Westminster
Westminster Abbey is one of my favorite places in the world - the history is overwhelming and you can literally touch it.
Big Ben is a bell, not a clock tower.
Tower Bridge from a boat
Then, on Sunday, we took a day tour to Stonehenge and Bath...
The Roman Baths - part ancient, part Edwardian
The Bath parade gardens
Then, we spent Monday night until Thursday morning in Amsterdam.
I've been to a lot of museums in a lot of cities in the US and Europe - believe me when I say that the Rijskmuseum is in the top three. Go to there!
Dollhouses were en vogue for rich 17th century Dutch housewives
To see a Vermeer in person is a treat...
Canal side views
