Postcards from I AMsterdam

When I visited Amsterdam for the second time, I was able to explore its canals again, walk through the bridges, see locals riding their bikes and experience its  modernity with a solid historical background. Here are some photos I have taken when strolling down the streets of the “Venice of the North”. They all bring back such great memories I will cherish forever!

    Beautiful collection of photos, Agness! We visited Amsterdam in November when it was cold, rainy and a hint of snow. What a difference sunshine and colorful flowers make. We’d love to return during the summer. Love the canal shots.

    1. That’s true Mary. Amsterdam in winter and Amsterdam in summer are just two completely different places. It was cold and rainy as well last time when I visited it, but this summer… just look how beautiful canals and streets look like. It was shiny and so nice :) Thank you!

  2. Gorgeous pics representing the city and its culture. I absolutely love the pic of the tulips! The colors are so bright and bold! And the pics of the canal are beautiful!!

    It’s pics like the 4th one down in the 3rd column that make me romance the idea of expatriating to Amsterdam. Great photos!

  4. Beautiful pictures Agness, I cannot quite say which one is my favorite, maybe the ones of the canals or the one with the bike. I love Amsterdam and I’d happily go back, your pictures bring back some nice memories.

  5. Lovely photos. Amsterdam gets a lot of stick, but I really like it. I just love the whole ‘I don’t give a damn what foreigners think’ vibe. People from Amsterdam have always done their own thing, however controversial it may seem to outsiders. I like that!

  6. I’ve only been to Amsterdam in winter and spent most of my time then in museums. I’d love to return and get a taste of what you’ve shown readers via your lovely photos. Biking, canals, barges, flowers – it just looks lovely in summer.

    1. You should definitely make it there in summer. It’s a completely different city. Looks amazing surrounded by bikes, flowers, canals and bridges. Everything looks so bright when the sun shines.

  7. Agness, I am so happy to gave Amsterdam another go!!!! I am even happier to see you loved the city!!! So wonderful. I will show you around next time, come in autumn it will be fun!

    1. I’m also happy. This time my visit was so different :):) I don’t think I can make it there this autumn, but maybe next summer ;-). Will keep you posted!x

    Stunning photos! We’ve never been to Amsterdam, but I’ve always wanted to go. I’ll have to make a note to visit in the summer should we ever make it there!

    1. Thank you Casey. You definitely gotta make it there next summer, you won’t regret it. I know how much you guys love to cycle so this would be a perfect travel destination for you, but please go explore the rest of the country and don’t stay too long in Amsterdam! There is so much to see in Holland :).

    The tuk-tuks in Europe always amaze me as they are SO EXPENSIVE. Even in the US, in San Diego, I remember seeing some tuk-tuk with a board reading “minimum ride $10 – PER PERSON”.
    Long-live Asian tuk-tuks!! ;)

      I know! It’s so crazy. In Siem Reap we paid around $5 to get to the airport from our hostel which is about 45 minute ride :)
