New York Part 4


And of course there were the museums! We made a list of museums we wanted to visit and tried to prioritize…have to go back to New York!

Guggenheim is a beautiful building. To my disappointment the Kandinsky floor was closed to the public. The rest of the museum was dedicated to an exhibition by two very silly Switzers ..we will say no more about it.

But yes the Metropolitan is the BEST museum in the world!!! I could go there every week! The building is beautiful, the collection breath taking. We planned our must see floors ahead and enjoyed Chagall, Kandinsky, Calder, Miro and many more!! And very clever , the museum has set out a walk for one-day-visitors so you can have an impression of the collection without going crazy.




And at the American Museum of Natural History, a lifelong wish of mine came to happen in seeing the MOST beautiful dioramas in the world. Those of you who follow my blog a little longer know of my passion for dioramas.


DSC_0496-2These can be over a 100 year old and come from an era without TV, Film, color photos and traveling was a thing for the happy few. The marvel and wonders they must have caused. Mr. Walker does not share my passion but he admitted that it was pretty amazing.




I was so happy.

New York, New York! Part One


Mr. Walker and I went for six blissful days to the Big Apple.
First time for the both of us. And of course, I want to share snapshots from the family album.


Man, what a fun city that is and so much cleaner as I expected ( spoken as a true cleanliness obsessed Dutch girl)

It was the biggest city I ever visited and I think I can easily spent a whole month there and still find things to see and do.

We walked over 70 mile, because to our opinion cities are best experienced when walking and New York is wonderful to walk, to stroll or as my friend Jane Austen would say, “promenade”.


Wonderful museums, delicious foods everywhere , weird streets where the sun never touches the pavement and of course we had the loveliest of spring weather.

It is impossible the show and tell all but for a few days I will post about our trip and I hope you will enjoy it!

Meneer Walker en ik zijn 6 dagen in New York City geweest en man wat hadden we t daar gezellig!! Zoveel te doen en te zien, echt genieten. t weer was prachtig en we hebben in 6 dagen een slordige 120km gelopen…steden zijn t best te voet te bewonderen!
De komende paar dagen meer kiekjes uit t familie album en ik hoop dat jullie t leuk vinden.

Love en Liefs, Johanna
