Big city life and roof top view

If you are travelling to Paris, any tourist guide will tell you to go and see the Eiffel Tower, Le Musée du Louvre or Place des Vosges and so on.

Those are definitely worth seeing places, but you might simply miss a temporary exhibition. Therefore, this post is dedicated to such an event.

I strongly recommend you to take some time and go to the Louis Vuitton Foundation. The building is a designed by the architect Franck Gehry and It is situated in the Bois de Boulogne in the 16th arrondissement.

For us (P. and myself) it looks like the Parisian “Manhattan”, nevertheless the fact that we have never been to NY City. We went to visit the “Icons of modern art. The Shchukin Collection” exhibit, which is opened from October 22th 2016 to February 20th 2017.

Hereafter is a photo of on the wall with some of the artists’ future in this exhibition. 130 masterpieces by impressionist, post-impressionist and modern masters of the Hermitage Museum and the Pushkin Museum. Be aware that there are queues for every gallery but it is worth waiting.

One of the things that I really enjoyed are the multilevel roof top, which is made of vast terraces. So when we decided to visit the Louis Vuitton Foundation it was obvious that we will make some photos for my blog. Even though before going out P. asked me “Are you going out like that”.

I hope you are going to appreciate my exhibition style from this week end.

I wish you all an amazing week.

Once upon a time in Amsterdam

Once upon a time a girl named Sneji wanted to start her own blog. Even though she is not a native English speaker and blogging is a huge challenge, she decided to dig in and write her first post.

But where do I start?

P. and I decided to spend the 4-day weekend in Amsterdam. So it seems a really good idea for my first blogpost.

Amsterdam is a very special city, not only because of its fairy architecture, but also for its canals, and of course, for the free Wi-Fi, which is available almost everywhere. We didn’t anticipate the fact that we overslept every morning, so we haven’t had a strict planning, where to go and eat.

We started by visiting the Rijksmuseum followed by the famous Van Gogh Museum. The Library of Rijksmuseum is an exquisite place to be. I have a thing about Libraries especially old ones.

We took a boat tour around Amsterdam and the traffic in the canals is quite heavy. The captain managed to avoid several shipwrecks for the 75 minutes tour. We chose the Blue Boat Company, because it was just outside our hotel. P. and I walked a lot and I can fade away between all the small streets and canals and just walk all day long.

If you are looking a place to eat or drink something I recommend De Pijp (The Pipe) or Jordaan district. It is a famous location, where you can find plenty of bars, cafés and restaurants.  Bar Boca’s in Jordaan has the best French fries I ever have eaten. You can also try the Foodhallen, which is well known for its street food.

So here are some photos of our trip. You can see what I choose to wear during our stay in the windy land of Amsterdam.DSC_0031

Hope you like it, and I will be happy to have your feedback, as this is my first blogpost.

Thank you,
