Amsterdam

Amsterdam

Day two Amsterdam started at the Rijksmuseum. After taking a million obligatory shots of the IAmsterdam sign in front of the museum, I finally headed inside and started browsing the collection. The museum has an impressive display of paintings from the Dutch Golden Age, including Rembrandt’s The Night Watch. While you could easily spend an entire day inside, I limited myself to about three hours, which gave me enough time to walk through all the exhibits. For lunch I grabbed something…

Europe 2018

Europe 2018

I’m back from another trip to Europe! I think out of all the trips I’ve been on this was by far my favourite. I was lucky I had near perfect weather, which made sightseeing and dining much more enjoyable. It was also super easy traveling between cities, especially the day trips I took from Amsterdam and Brussels.

However we almost didn’t make it as we ended up waiting almost 45 minutes for our taxi to get to the hotel! It was so congested with everyone heading into Kawazu that the traffic was back up for several kilometres….

Izu Peninsula Part 1

Izu Peninsula Part 1

I spent two days in Izu Peninsula back in March with two of my close friends. This was along the same time as Hina Matsuri, so we got to enjoy some of the festivities as well. I must admit I didn’t do any planning prior to going. All I did was show up at Shinagawa Station that morning with my overnight bag and they did the rest. =) Perhaps because of that, I was a little surprised that the train we took to…
