Amsterdam: Distractions . . .

For November, today was actually a very pretty day in Amsterdam. The sun was out, the weather was cool (not cold) and I finally went to the market. :) 

Albert Hein is a large supermarket and I stocked up on some fruits, these delicious freshly made croissants, water, coffee and a few other apartment living essentials. :)

Today, I didn't do much sightseeing except for checking out Dam Square, Magna Plaza and the exterior of the Nieuwe Kirk and Royal Palace (both of which were temporarily closed) . . . and then by surprise I bumped into an old friend ... :) What is a visit to Dam Square without seeing Madame Tussauds. That was so much fun . . .

I was just talking about Van Gogh and his SunFlower painting.

I'm posting my blog early before heading out for my evening explorations because I probably won't have time when I return and I leave tomorrow for Brugges Belgium.  Whoo hoo! I'm not sure that I will be able to blog since I'm going to travel light and just take my itouch. I have a blog application on there and may do a quickie and my daily tweets. I will do a better blog entry for beautiful Brugges when I return to Amsterdam in a couple of days.

Here we go, another wonderful train adventure!  I'll be back . . .


  1. That wax George is kinda scary looking! I love shopping at European grocery stores. It's fun to compare the products with the USA. Have a fun train ride!

  2. Have a wonderful time in Brugge. Have you seen CherryPie's blog (she's a Photohunter). She just got back from Brugge. She's still doing posts from Brugge.

    It is a beautiful city. Be careful on the wet cobblestones. Enjoy the food!

  3. Hi Kathy,
