Robert Reoch Visits Paris, Brussels, and Amsterdam
Robert Reoch August 2013 Travel in Pictures
We took another vacation, Joon and I. We began in Paris, France this time. We also visited Brussels, Belgium, and Amsterdam, The Netherlands. It was an eye-opening and exhausting-in-a-good-way experience. We covered lots of ground including some of the great museums (The Louvre, in Paris, the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam, and several others). More bucket list items are now checked off. I feel richer for having made the the journey and covered an amazing lot of area.
Below are selected photos from the thousands we snapped. The great thing about the digital age is not having to worry about using up all your film. Now it’s about keeping a big enough memory chip on hand, but we were well equipped. The photos tell the story. I won’t bore you with too many details.

The most photographed thing in the world and still smiling.
The peeing boy statue, “Manneken Pis” (making piss?)
Galeries Royales Saint Hubert in Belgium. (It’s a mall.)
Amsterdam The Netherlands
This is why the people of The Netherlands are among the happiest in the world. They’re smart, they’re serene. Maybe it’s what they smoke. (I think it’s in the water.)
Revelers in the Red Light District of Amsterdam. It’s all here.
What is Amsterdam without a historic windmill?
