Day 58- Rijksmuseum and Romantic Dinner on the Canal

Today we spent the morning hanging out in our apartment for a few hours before heading out for the day. We took the tram to the Rijksmuseum, but first we stopped over at the Apple Store. Alexander has this new goal of visiting different Apple stores along the way which I think is crazy- they all look the same! 

Anyway, while we were there we played with the new iPhone 8s and apparently since the place had really good lightly, he wanted to take some glamour picks in the store...

So after our Apple Store shenanigans, we walked over to the museum. The Rijksmuseum is a well known art museum housing great works by artists like Vermeer, Rembrandt, and Van Gogh! Some were quite famous like Vermeer’s “The Milkmaid”, Rembrandt’s “Night Watch”, and Van Gogh’s “Self Portrait” to name a few!

The museum was also a work of art itself! The building is quite beautiful!

In front of the Rijksmuseum is a giant sign that says “I amsterdam” where a lot of tourists take photos! So, naturally we climbed on that bandwagon!

 After a couple ours of wandering the city, we had a romantic dinner along the water! The bridges were all lit up, and the reflections on the water were spectacular!
