Finally!  after a very long trip with a stop in Amsterdam….Thank goodness for those quick trains into Amsterdam and great weather for a trip to the Madam Tussaude wax museum.  Travelling with 2 teens and a pre teen, this stop was a Godsend.  We all had fun posing with our favorite stars, muscians,  and historical […]
