The Wurst Women In Europe: Part 2

One of the main things we did while in Amsterdam is visit the Rijksmuseum which is the Dutch national art and history museum and the largest of all the art museums in the country. The website advises that you prepare yourself for a 3 hour visit. Beth and I found ourselves there for 5 1/2! – and we only picked out a selection of areas to view.

It was honestly so incredible. The building itself was breathtaking and even being in the toilets felt like wandering through a pristine Egyptian tomb. We were both excited just to be there. We started with an audio tour of ancient Asia, moved onto Art Nouveau where we saw the original Lucien Gaillard jewellery that I’ve been forever pinning on Pinterest! We stood in awe in front of Rembrandt’s Nightwatch, took in some Van Gogh, Romanticism and sculpture and then dived head first into the gift shop…..

On our last day we did some wandering around the very trendy neighbourhood of De Pijp. There were loads of quirky little coffee shops and vintage stores. Beth bought a very cool waistcoat and we both walked out with new hats as you do.

Even went knocking on Rembrandt’s front door but I was 347 years too late.

As you can see, we had slightly mixed reactions to the red light district!
