One destination that has been on my list for many many years is Amsterdam Netherlands.Β  I’m not sure which captures my attention first – tulips, canals or the colorful skinny buildings.Β  So i was really excited when we decided to take a trip there last summer.

We only had 4 short days to wander around this beautiful city so we wanted to take in as much as we could in that time.

We didn’t know what to expect when we arrived because besides the tulips, canals and skinny buildings all we knew about this city was in regards to red lights and green things (if you get my drift!).

But what we found was so much more! The beauty of this city is beyond words so here is a photogenic journey of our time there…
