Amsterdam and "The Lady in the Van"

It was worth pushing through Saturday 's crush of Christmas shoppers in the centre of York to see this film. I know the work of Alan Bennett is not to everyone's taste but we love it. This film is wonderful, funny and witty, with a little social conscience thrown in, definitely one of the best films I have seen this year.

Also, I have booked our first trip for 2016, three nights in Amsterdam in February, a trip we have been planning since hearing of the reopening of the Rijksmuseum. So, something of an arty-farty and foodie weekend, I don't think we will be sampling the other two main "delights" of Amsterdam, the red light district and the wacky-backy cafes.


  1. Will there be a report from the van Gogh Museum on the blog?

    1. For me, the Rijksmuseum and the van Gogh museum are top of my list of sites to visit, so there will be a report from the van Gogh museum, unless I am over-ruled by she who must be obeyed.
