Taking a Royal Selfie

Many people despise the act of taking selfies, and this hatred is justified.  Especially when a selfie stick is involved.

I recently visited the Nieuwe Kerk, or New Church, in Amsterdam.  While there, we took a selfie with the royal family of Holland.  But, I choose to ignore the fact that it was with a life-sized photograph and believe that I actually hung out with royalty.

I wrote a review about the whole experience for the website Dutch Review, and you can read it here:

Dutch Word of the Day:

Kerk

It’s pronounced “care-k,” and this is the word for church.
