Love(ly) ballet show

Yesterday I went to a love(ly) ballet show with the great lovestory of Romeo & Julia interwoven in all the acts! We were seated on the upper balcony in the theatre and looking down we saw a large heart projected on the red curtains. Well what better thing to post here on Valentine's day than a red heart.

Spring in February

Today, a day off and hard to believe it looked and felt like Spring! So what better thing to do than cycle into town and enjoy a cappuccino on a sidewalk cafe! Unbelievable as it is only the beginning of February!

Theatre visit

In Amsterdam we went to the theatre to see a fabulous feel good musical called Petticoat. Carré is a beautiful theatre. It is not only very impressive from the outside but inside too. If you sit high it is very steep indeed. Lucky us we had seats in the royal box and sat a lot lower in the middle so we could see very well!

Train station

On a daytrip to Amsterdam we normally take the train or tram somewhere near Amsterdam to go into the centre of the city. This time we decided to take the train in Abcoude. We couldn't find the station so decided to ask the direction. LOL we just crossed a bridge and thought there was a river beneath but we just crossed the railroad!!! On this picture you see the train station in the distance.
Now say for yourself the blueness does look like water!!!
