baby eends (ducks) + amsterdam

August 20, 2010

amsterdam is crazy. when you arrive at the central train station you are dropped off into the midst of trams and trains and canals and bicycles.  oh, the bicycles!

it’s a beautiful town to wander around and get lost in, but it was nice at the end of the day to actually leave the craziness for the calm relaxation of the lake right outside of the city where we were staying.

the city and the surrounding area (and pretty much the whole country) is made up of an intricate system of canals, which we enjoyed on a three hour boat tour into and around the city.  here are a few pictures of our adventures in amsterdam.

we also met some of the most interesting and nicest people in amsterdam.  it really is a city that is aware of, and celebrates, their eccentricities… which was very refreshing.

    Nice post and nice photos.

    I loved Amsterdam when I went last year. The city is so much more than what most people think. I enjoyed the culture, museums and canals.

    Maybe I’ll post about it one day too and share some photos.

    I Amsterdam!
