I’m going to add to this page with photos from our recent trip to visit London and Amsterdam. We travelled specifically to see some of the world’s best art collections; both for pleasure, and as an educational field trip. This was my first time to Amsterdam (see cheese and bicycles, whoa).

Starting off with the Courtauld Gallery in London, UK. I will add selected photos from different galleries and museums as time allows (and from locations that allowed photography).
