Wanderlust: Exploring Amsterdam

Initially, I wasn't terribly excited about visiting Amsterdam. After all, the two activities the city is notorious for are not exactly hobbies of mine.

As it turned out, I loved Amsterdam. It was so charming, vegan-friendly, and full of new adventures - like staying on a boat instead of a traditional hotel!

A large portion of the visit was spent simply wandering around the canals and taking in the quiet beauty of the boats and buildings. Discovering hidden gardens was always a bonus!

Another really fun (and sometimes scary) thing about Amsterdam was the abundance of bicycles. There are so many chained EVERYWHERE, and the cyclists are fearless.

Have you ever been to Amsterdam?

  1. Amsterdam looks like a beautiful place to visit. Thanks for sharing the pics.

  2. I went to Amsterdam in May and fell in love! They do love their biking...I didn't venture out on a bike but did enjoy walking the canals! I stayed outside of the citybut would love to do a boat hotel next time!


Fancy seeing you here.
