London GB: Relive History In The Churchill War Rooms PDF Print E-mail


It’s comforting for your elderly travel4seniors.com editor that a couple of World War 2 movies about England were on the list of Academy Awards honorees. “Dunkirk” portrays the disaster when British troops had to escape in 1940 to avoid being overrun by victorious Germans after France had surrendered.

The other, “Darkest Hour” is about Winston Churchill, wartime prime minister. It covers the same historic moments when many English officials were urging Churchill to negotiate with the Germans to save British troops from being wiped out at Dunkirk. He refused, ordered the evacuation and the rest is history.

If your travels take you to London, consider visiting a vivid reminder of those historic moments, the underground bunkers that include the Churchill War Rooms. They’re located at Clive Steps at King Charles Street, near St. James Park. For times, descriptions, fees and other info, go to www.iwm.org.uk/visits/churchill-war-rooms

 
Amsterdam, Netherlands: De Kattenkabinet Is A Meowseum PDF Print E-mail


The fun museum is themed “an exploration of the cat’s role in art and culture through the centuries”. If you’re a cat lover and travel plans include the beautiful Dutch city, spend some hours here.

The feline theme is expressed in the museum exhibits through the works of many famed artists. They include Rembrandt, Picasso, Toulouse-Latrec and others. This small, canal-side building at Herengracht 497 houses the owner's family on the second floor, while the museum is on the ground level overlooking the water traffic.
