The one with the city tour

Last week mom and me hopped on a train to Amsterdam. Where we visited the Rijksmuseum and the Photography Museum and we took a walk around town. One of the things I love most about Amsterdam is the architecture and how most of the houses are mismatched, different coloured, and sometimes very crooked. Over a hundred photo's were taken that day (do not fear, they won't appear here all of them!), so I'll split them up into two or three posts. This first post is with photo's taken on the streets. When I came back home and had a better look at my photo's, I discovered Marc Chagall is on one of them too ;-) I hope you'll enjoy my little tour across Amsterdam.

  10. I loved Amsterdam and although it's been awhile since I've been there, your photos bring back memories. I'd love to visit soon again. How wonderful that you are just a train's ride away!

    1. For some sort of reason it seems further away, but after the trainride I always realize it's closer than I think and I should go more often :-)

  14. I love Amsterdam so much. I went in 2008 and wasn't sure how I'd like it but I fell in love. The architecture is so beautiful. And the people were so nice to us. I hope I can go back again.

    1. I live in quite a boring looking apartment (from the outside), maybe that's why I like those mismatched houses :-)

  17. I love all the buildings and architecture, there is so much history there, if only walls could talk!

  18. Great pictures of Amsterdam! The mismatched houses make Amsterdam beautiful. But to be honest, downtown Amsterdam is to crowdy for me most of the time.

    1. For me too, I always avoid the Kalverstraat...

  23. This is something I'm very deprived off. A train away to Amsterdam? You are so lucky! It would take us a very strict visa application and thousand of US dollars to reach any part in Europe. Sigh...

    I love the one with the red door and the area with contrasting white and lavender.

    1. I like the lavender too, although that tree looks a bit sad...

  24. Your city sure does look different than my city. I like the looks of yours better! Mine is pretty boring but it's still nice to get out and walk.

  25. I LOVE all the houses in Amsterdam. I have a couple of photos from when I was last there taped into my scrabook "dream house" page. It looks like you had a great trip, I'm in love with the first photo, it's such a cute wonky house :) xx

    1. I love wonky houses, but I wonder if it's fun to live in one of them.
