Concert and Museums

We heard a superb concert at the famous Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, a lyrical and exciting program of Grieg. Our seats behind the stage gave us a great view of the very expressive conductor as he grinned wickedly at the percussionist, or encouraged the French horns, or closed his eyes in bliss in the sweet passages. Later we explored the museum district, including the brilliant Van Gogh museum, another wonderful day, but we have sore feet!

    • Would love to try bikes, but it is a bit scary at first …. Maybe next visit, since S has decided Schipol is just right, he refuses to go through Heathrow after two nightmare experiences there ….. Don’t know how we will get to England to visit you, perhaps by ferry or train one day πŸ™‚

      • Heathrow rocks, I love it! But I love any airport because it means I’m going somewhere πŸ™‚ You have travelled around England before haven’t you? But prefer Ireland or have some connections there?

  1. Amsterdam is such a great city! I’ve never been to that concert hall, though. Thanks for taking me on the trip with you:)
