I was recently looking at photos from the trip I took to Amsterdam in the fall of 2009, and I thought I would post a few of them here. My dad was from Holland, so I’d been before but always with my parents. I stayed with my aunt and uncle in Haarlem and visited with my other aunts, uncles and cousins. In the mornings, I would take a quick commuter train into Amsterdam and do some exploring. It was truly an amazing week.
I thought this windmill was particularly pretty.
One of my favourite photos that I’ve ever taken – in central Amsterdam
This time I made it to the Anne Frank house (pictures weren’t allowed inside). It was a great – albeit heart wrenching – experience.
I couldn’t get enough of the picturesque canals.
Museumplein (“Museum Square”).
Albert Cuyp Market.
Bikes, bikes, everywhere! These are parked outside a metro station. There are thousands and thousands of them.
