The one with our day in Amsterdam (part 2)

This is part two of the two-parter of our day in Amsterdam. Besides visiting the photography museum FOAM, we also visited EYE. This is the Dutch Film Institure, that includes a cinematography museum. In the basement are all sorts of interactive goodies, like watching movie fragments, introduced by Dutch actors. There was also a big screen, that changed colours if you moved in front of it. It was especially fun to see kids moving, jumping and dancing in front of it. We got there by ferryboat, which is kind of a big deal for me. I haven't been on the water since 2002. The last time I did, I got seasick. Very seasick. All was well, it took only a couple of minutes to get to the other side. But I think it might take me another eleven years before I get on a boat again. Still not my cup of tea.



  1. I love the interactive colour screen! I haven't been on a boat for over twenty years, since I get terribly sea sick too.

  2. Looks so cool! I love Amsterdam. :) I get horrible motion sickness, too. I can't even sit in the front row at the movies.

    Following you on Bloglovin' now. So happy to have found your blog. Glad I messaged you on Etsy!

  3. I get seasick too! I don't know if they sell it there but Dramamine now has a non-drowsy motion sickness pill that works wonder.

    The musuem looks amazing, and the design of the building is just stunning! Glad you had fun!

  4. What an amazing looking building! I love museums. Life is too short not to discover something new everyday. These places make it easy to do that! Curators work very hard to come up with innovative ways to present history. Just as you laid out here.

    Thanks for taking us along, as always!
