If you’re planning to travel to Amsterdam in Netherlands, then you should definitely read my previous post about Amsterdam called Art and traveltips to Amsterdam.
This video here is from the streets of Amsterdam. A coincidence was that Lata Mangehskar happened to be singing on the radio while shooting this. She is one of the most well-known singers in Bollywood films, and has been for decades.
After this short video of mine you will get to see some more YouTubevideos about Amsterdam and things related, so take a nice posture and enjoy your armchairtrip!
Bollywood movie shot in Amsterdam
Back in 2014 one good Bollywood movie was also partially filmed in Amsterdam. The movie was called Queen, and it was starring Kangana Ranaut. (She has had the leading role in other nice Bollywood films also like Fashion, Woh Lamhe and Tanu weds Manu.)
Queen was almost a four star movie according my taste, but the problem with that movie, like with many other Bollywood movies which have been filmed in West, like Shah Rukh Khan’s latest film Jab Harry met Sejal, was that it was giving a very one-sided view of an European lifestyle. I mean, if I was an Indian watching Bollywood-movies, I might even start to think that all that Westerners do is party, celebrate and seduce each other, one after the other. Of course that is not the case. But, coincidentally, it might even look like that in the real life in Goa and some other touristic places in India. YouTubers really need to see an effort and make more videos to show what the real life is like in Europe, isn’t it?
Anyways, this other video from Amsterdam here tells you about the great painter Vincent Van Gogh. A few months back, in 2017, an animation movie about Van Gogh was released. That movie was called Loving Vincent, and the scenes in that movie had all been painted with oilcolours.
One has to raise one’s hat for the huge amount of work and effort they had put for that movie. Still, I definitely do recommend you to read the great book about Vincent Van Gogh, written by Irving Stone. It will give you the whole picture of that poor artist’s life.
In addition to texts, reviews and presentations, you can find genuine photographs and videos and artworks related to Goa, India, travelling, arts and culture from this Indivue’s interactive Travel Opus to Goa – Matkaopus Goaan, which in 2017 is 12 years old, and regularly updated.
I visited Barcelona twice within the past one year and had planned to blog you so much about it. Unfortunately I got puzzled by the recent tragic events in the Barcelona street Las Ramblas, and also by the big talk about Barcelona and Katalonia leaving Spain, that I really could not write nor paint about Barcelona anymore. That is for at least some time now.
But just in case you are plannin to travel to Barcelona yourself, do check all the short reviews I wrote for Barcelona in Tripadvisor from http://bit.ly/TripToBarcelona. There is, especially for the Indian kitchen lovers, a nice Indian restaurant recommendation by Indivue. That Indian restaurant might even be the spiciest restaurant in the whole of Barcelona!
There was also another good Indian restaurant in Barcelona. It can actually be even better than the previously mentioned one, but like I said, I might write about it later, so stay tuned.
Now let me introduce to you the digital painting inspired by Barcelona.
The hashtags below it will take you to instaimages from Barcelona and other art related issues. You might want to take a look at them as well.

Another European city, which I have wanted to blog and paint for so long is Amsterdam, and today is the day. I must tell you, those Amsterdam canal cruises really took my heart away.
