Rijksmuseum with kids: One hour long self guided tour with a toddler

Rijksmuseum

While I was still an Art History student, I’ve dreamed how one day I’ll be visiting museums with my kid. How he or she will be that enlightened kid that will understand art. And while he will be asking me meaningful questions about paintings in front of us, I would be the proudest mum ever. And then I’ve got a child. And realised how that little dream of mine will be a bit harder to achieve. And that I’ll have to create a great experience for him, so he can enjoy in a museum. That’s why I’ve created  this one…

Hotel Review: Best Western Premier Alsterkrug in Hamburg

Best Western Alsterkrug Hotel in Hamburg

It’s a place where I’m relaxing, so I love having a restaurant and some extra amenities like swimming pool or a spa in it. Location is of course very important to me, as well.

Well, with the Best Western Premier Alsterkrug Hotel in Hamburg…
