We did a quick visit to the Albert Hein store around the corner - to fill up on food supplies and then made our way to museum square.
We lingered outside the Rijksmuseum for a while - admiring the architecture...
.... and then made our way inside to buy 'the museumcard' - which gives you free access to lots of museums in NL for a year!
Then we were on our way to meet the lovely, Yvonne from muddleonthrough.blogspot.com
She stays in the cutest little town just outside of Amsterdam...
... and what a wonderful experience to meet up in person with one of the 'Creative Courage' e-course members!!
In her words... we chatted away as if we did it frequently :)
On returning home that first day after these first 'unreal' experiences that we've been planning for so long ... we passed out feeling so blessed!
