Anne Frank House

Amsterdam, Netherlands

Over the summer I took another awesome vacation, I was blessed with the opportunity of visiting 10 countries with my cousins. Wow, I hadn’t noticed that it was 10! For the next week, I will share some of my favorite photos from this vacation. The first stop was Amsterdam in Holland for two nights.

Amsterdam Centraal Station
On the evening that we arrived, it was raining. That didn’t stop us from going out though. This is the view looking out from Amsterdam Centraal Station.
On day two, I visited the Van Gogh Museum. Can I just say that I had the most amazing time there?
Seeing the work in person is quite an experience. Still Life: Vase with Irises Against a Yellow Background (May 1890) is one of the few still lifes painted during his stay at the asylum in Saint-Rémy.
My haul from the gift shop, one t-shirt, one pencil case, and two magnets.
Here I am standing in front of the Rijksmuseum. Unfortunately I did not get a chance to enter on this trip but now I have a fantastic excuse to return.
On my last day in Amsterdam, I visited the Anne Frank House and Westerkerk, which is a church right across the street. This is a view from the top of the bell tower overlooking the Prinsengracht canal. The Anne Frank House Museum is the black building on the corner and the Secret Annex is in the house adjacent to the museum.
