For years I’ve been seeing photos of bikes in Amsterdam with one of the many canals in the background. So of course I was hoping to capture my own. No worries, bikes are everywhere. Not as many as in Copenhagen, but close. We even saw a parking garage for bicycles:
Had to watch really closely when crossing streets because bikers would come out of nowhere and nearly run us down. If you go, pay attention to the reddish-brown lanes–they’re for bikes–and look both ways, more than once.
Found my canal with bike shot.
And one more.
Would you believe the place with the awnings is the Hansel and Gretel Cafe? So cute.
I could have taken so many photos of bikes and canals, but we only had a day and a half and really wanted to see the Van Gogh Museum, the Riiksmuseum, Anne Frank house, etc. It was a bit of a challenge, but we hit them all.
Hope your week’s going well so far.
