Himself and I always wanted to go to Perth. It has been on our wishlist for many years, but we never quite managed to make it while still living in the country. So when I received a message from a friend that she was getting married, and it was in Perth, there was no way I wasn’t going to be there!

Why not travel around the world to see something you’ve never seen before?! We decided on balance that spending a week in Perth would be best. Achieve as much off our “want” list as possible. Would you like to know more?

Het Scheepvaartmuseum

There are so many beautiful and well thought out museums in Amsterdam, and I’m continually taken aback by the diversity and depth of knowledge available to everyone. In our most recent weekend exploration we headed out to the Scheepvaartmuseum! In English, this is the Maritime Museum. Given the breadth and depth of the Dutch maritime history, we knew this was going to be an amazing experience!

The museum is housed in the old Arsenal building that has been repurposed and refurbished in a complete metamorphosis! Would you like to know more?
