My recent travels took me to Amsterdam and I must say I loved it!
I really like cities like Amsterdam or Copenhagen where you live next to the river.
Ok, all major cities are situated next to a river, that’s history. But not all of them are charming as these two. No high buildings or skyscrapers. Just cute little houses. Looks more peaceful and sync with nature.
Since I only had 24 h I took a boat ride in the canals and a walk around the city centre.
The boat ride takes an hour and it is a nice way too see the city and learn something new.
These are some pics taken from the boat. It is a bit hard to take nice pics when the boat is moving all the time.
We were lucky with the weather. It was sunny and warm and perfect to wear just a sweater, no jacket.
I really love the architecture! I guess it’s a nice change from all the glass skyscrapers when you’re living in Dubai. X)
Of course, in the centre, you can smell the weed on the streets. It is not uncommon since it is legal along side with prostitution.
Here are some pics of the city. You can take pictures of the ladies in the Red District though.
What I also love is that they are a biking city! Biking culture is big! Everybody rides a bike, they have their own paths on the streets… Healthy life stlyes! Gotta love it! 😀
As you can see from pictures there are loads of little canals and about 1000 bridges. So there are plenty of places to walk around, explore and get lost in!
So go ahead and do it! 😉
Ps. And oh yeah! Rub a boob for good luck! Hhhh
