Yesterday, I biked and biked and biked. I lost my map somewhere in my travels and got lost a couple of times. But then, it is an easy city to navigate and find your way home.
It has been a bit rainy today, and I decided to edit photos. I love doing that. And I love the surreal affect I applied. I guess it is how I see Amsterdam. There is so much to photograph, it becomes overwhelming trying to decide.
I thought today, I would have you stroll with me along the canals and later, in Vondel Park.
Remember these rowers from the last blog. I like this edit much better.
Did you know that there are many many houseboats that folks live on? Some are stunning!
And then there are just regular boats. A very popular past-time is cruising around the canals or down the Amstel. I would so be doing that every day!
Every time we come to Amsterdam, I always spend time in Vondel Park. It is a quiet area away from the scurry of cars, trams and bikes. It is many things to many people, whether it be sipping expresso at one the cafe terraces, joining a spontaneous soccer match, letting children play or dogs run free. There will be elderly resting on park benches, young lovers strolling hand in hand or groups congregating around a guitar, it is all typical of Amsterdam’s relaxed attitudes.
It is here that I find peace and contentment in the midst of this busy city.
I hope you enjoyed the stroll with me today.
I'm hoping for a sunny day tomorrow. Keep your finger's crossed!
