Views from a week in Amstrdam

10561665_10152718274551019_1045692216158121972_nYesterday I returned home from my very first visit to the Netherlands, Amsterdam to be exact. My family and I spent five wonderful days there enjoying all the city had to offer. While there is so much to say about this lovely city I thought most of it could be said with the photos I took.
Amsterdam is a compact city which is easily seen on foot, by bike (one of the more favored modes of transportation) or by boat along the city’s famous ring of canals. Most of my viewing was done on foot and occasionally by boat since my skills in the high traffic bike lanes would not have been appreciated.
All through the city there were sites to be seen, architecture to be appreciated and sense of joy in living that is infectious. I have to say Amsterdam may be one of my favorite places I have visited so far.
Hope you enjoy the view as much as I did…
