Amsterdam Tour in 6 Photos

Amsterdam houses

I’m finally getting around to posting photos from our trip back in November! This was among my favorite shots. Amsterdam does black houses so well. It makes the city look very chic.

You can’t see from the photo, but the cars are sitting right up against the canal. A lot of times there wasn’t even a railing separating the two. Walking by, I freaked myself out picturing what it would be like to parallel park along one of those streets.

Broek In Waterland sheep

We rented a scooter and rode down to Broek In Waterland, just north of Amsterdam. It’s like a little wonderland full of water (obviously), livestock, and luxurious cottages!

The scooter made the experience more memorable, although way more cold. But we’re softies since Northern California weather is like this.

Broek In Waterland

For anyone who lives in the Bay Area, Broek In Waterland was kind of like the Marin of the Netherlands — clean, upscale and exceptionally pretty.

Animals everywhere! They were cleverly contained by the waterways. Although the cows were not, and they hogged the road earlier.

Not pictured in this round up: great food, coffee, beer and shopping. A favorite boutique was Sukha. It has a cozy, natural vibe, plus a treehouse when you first walk in.

    I was wondering when we would see something of this trip. How lovely for me to go back to the Netherlands through your lovely photos. The first and the fifth photos are my favourites today and they all invoke lots of memories. Thanks for sharing.

    I’m planning a Europe trip for my 30th bday and Amsterdam is on my list, I’ve been wanting to visit forever! Your pics just sealed the deal 😉
