Utrecht and Amsterdam

I love the great photography here of Amsterdam, where my oldest son lives, and Utrecht, which he, like the photographer, thinks is even nicer.

A few weeks ago I promised you an extended post from the Netherlands with plenty of bikes and canals, and here it comes! I had the opportunity to visit shortly Amsterdam and Utrecht and take some of the usual touristy photos, but the number of different bikes, boats, and canals I shot is so big that I am only going to show you a small fraction of my photos while still risking getting you bored.  So you’re warned of the coming typical Dutch scenery, which I myself find quite charming and slightly nostalgic (I used to live in Utrecht in my youth).

PSX_20170512_133136 We start our tour in Amsterdam, which doesn’t need much introduction or advertisement. The larger boats on the photo are actually houses one can rent in exchange for a substantial amount of money each month. Not that the actual Dutch houses on the other side of the street are any cheaper.

  1. Years ago, my first love and I toured Amsterdamn. What a gorgeous trip so thanks for the memories. My youngest son Paul lives in Denmark. He married a lovely talented Dane and there they are. I speak with him daily. He’s the best entertainer and she is a glorious artist. What a team. We communicate every day.

    1. My youngest son likes Denmark. He says they do the best landscape architecture in the world, so he’d love to work there for six or twelve months so he could learn from the masters.
