Cold in Amsterdam

>> CHECK OUT THE MOST RECENT VIDEO <<

January is almost over and I must admit,.. I haven't done that many fashionable activities. Trust me, when you're working on geeky and science-y things together other geeks around you towards a deadline... fashion is the last thing on my mind. :-P


Fortunately, earlier this month, the weather was sunny (though still freezing cold!), so I met up with my long-time friend Bianca for some catching up and among other things.. we also visited the famous Hermitage Museum.


As always, when travelling to Amsterdam, it's easier and cheaper to park outside the city and take the public transport into the inner city. You can see it was pretty cold.. leather gloves, tights and long coat and boots! It was below 0 degrees Celsius (that's 32 degrees Fahrenheit for you Yanks :-P ).


While walking towards the entrance of the actual museum, you had to be careful.. there were still patches of ice scattered around. Very treacherous!


The exhibit was on the Dutch citizens during the Dutch Golden Age and then primarily about the rich upper class in Amsterdam in the 17th century. They are mostly depicted in paintings called 'schuttersstukken', a type of group painting of which the most famous one is 'The Night Watch' by Rembrandt.

Obviously, this painting is displayed in the Amsterdam Rijksmuseum, so they projected an image of 'The Night Watch' with a beamer between all the other real paintings.


The visit was lots of fun and very educational.. and after such an activity (and a bit of window shopping) it was time for dinner and coffee, so we went to do just that in the Bijenkorf Shopping Centre. And after that, a bit of chilling on the couch in the stylish coffee bar. :)


Just like that 8 hours had passed and we had walked about 14 kilometres in total throughout Amsterdam and the museum and the shops! I was glad I was just wearing my 4 inch heeled boots! ;-)


Of course, after having spent a day together roaming around.. we also took a picture together outside the museum's gates. We didn't plan our outfits, but I do like the green next to the red colour!



Bianca was so nice to also film some small clips of me.. so I'm very grateful that I can present this video! :D

  4. Omg I'd be dead in 32 deg weather. You are staying stylishly cold. I love your look so so much. San Francisco is the same, the sun is shinning yet it's super cold. Very deceptive weather.
