SAIL Amsterdam 2015

Catching up on some of our more exciting recent adventures, we attended SAIL last weekend! It is an epic occasion where Amsterdam becomes host to all manner of water vessels for four magnificent days every five years.

It was an amazing spectacle and exhibition to be a part of and contribute to. We wound up going on the Saturday along with 600,000 other people who attended that day. Would you like to know more?

Het Scheepvaartmuseum – Part 2

After running around all over the Amsterdam for a while, we headed back inside to check out the rest of the museum, and as has become a running gag with us, we got to the museum with just enough time to see a couple of parts and then get kicked out at closing time! Given our minimal amount of time in which we had to achieve everything, we made the executive decision to head to the maritime art first, in the South Wing.

The examples of art on display all come across as quite intense! Would you like to know more?
