My visit to Amsterdam was short & unfortunately the weather wasn’t too kind to me but as it generally is we travel photographers have to make the best of every situation. At least the rain stayed away most of the day so it could have been worse. I spent most of my time on the canal boats & a short walkabout in the old town center.

“I lived on a houseboat in Amsterdam for a year. It was intense, & it’s possible that I even had a few blackouts.”

Wolfgang Beltracchi

“My experience in Amsterdam is that cyclists ride where the hell they like & aim in a state of rage at all pedestrians while ringing their bell loudly, the concept of avoiding people being foreign to them.”

― Terry Pratchett


Did You Know?

Surprisingly Amsterdam has more canals & bridges than Venice. Amsterdam, also known as “Venice of the North” boasts over 165 canals that compose a widespread network throughout the entire city & 1281 bridges, three times as many as Venice!
