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.

Beautiful photos of everyday life in Amsterdam. The way you captured these ordinary moments made them seem super special.

Lovely photos! You make me realize how much I want to visit again. Hmmm, maybe this summer? Amsterdam is such a great city.

Summer is a great time in Amsterdam =) We have direct flights so when you come to visit us, just stop over there!

Great pics! I always wanted to visit the Netherlands in spring.

Thanks, Laura – definitely the perfect time to be there!

Beautiful pictures!

Thanks so much, Heidi!

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!

Thanks so much, Emily! I love my new camera =)
