Spring in Amsterdam

We're still waiting for John's work permit to be granted and it's a lot cheaper to live outside of Norway. So we've come back to nearby Amsterdam where springtime is desperately trying to poke its way out of the ground and through the clouds. We've had much less rain than when we were here last time and certainly fewer distractions.

Amsterdam is looking a lot more like Paris these days. When you look down, anyway. Few people seem to pick up after their pets.

    […] Amsterdam and street food go quite well together, so it’s a good thing there are so many markets around. This is one of my favourite cities in which to capture market life and just wander around. We didn’t try this snack on our last visit but it’s looking pretty intriguing to me right now, so I think we’ll have to seek it out next time we’re there.

    I loved the first photo. Then the second. Then the third made me think “oh, that is so the image of Amsterdam I have in my mind!” And it kept going. Great pics!

    I love Amsterdam in Spring as all the flowers bloom and the city is so colourfuol and amazing! I also love going to the Keukenof Gradens decorated with gorgeous tulips!

    What a gorgeous, friendly city — spring is starting here, too, but Amsterdam is just so PRETTY!

    I haven’t been to Amsterdam, or anywhere in the Netherlands. The photos look great! Hopefully I can get there in the near future since we only live about 5 or 6 hours away by train.
