Yesterday, after touring Kinderdijk, (see In My Viewfinder: From Viking Odin, Exploring Kinderdijk And Its Windmills), passengers from Viking Odin boarded a bus for a one-hour drive along the Dutch countryside to follow in the footsteps of Vincent Van Gogh. Our tour took us to the Dutch province of Brabant, where Van Gogh was born in 1853 and grew up.
This was a wonderful tour for anyone with an interest in art or insights into the life of this talented, yet troubled, artist. Van Gogh created 2,100 works of art in a single decade. Van Gogh died at age 37 from a gunshot wound.
