We were lucky enough to be in town for the Amsterdam Gay Pride Canal Parade. Being there you can feel the support of the locals.

The canals can get a bit crowded sometimes. It’s ok, we had the biggest boat, so we won!

This photo gives you that feeling you are cruising past a Cafe full of people drinking coffee. That was the effect I was going for … it wasn’t a blurry photo… honest!

One of many places to eat in and around the red light district. Or should that be green light district?

  1. Great shots! I love the laid back vibe of Amsterdam. The architecture is mesmerizing and the cobbled streets so alluring, I’m forever getting lost after turning down an unfamiliar street!

  2. Nice piece. I love Amsterdam so much! It’s a wonderful place ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Awww these are great photos!! Amsterdam is certainly the prettiest place we’ve lived, Central Station looks great now too! The whole time we were there it was behind scaffolding!

      We are finding that a lot in our travels. Some great places we want to see have all this scaffolding in front of them. You have to use your imagination a bit…

      I guess that’s why they look great, because they have a facelift every now and then!

  4. This is true, and Central Station was under scaffolding for at least 3 and a half years, so it ought to look pretty awesome ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Wow, we are like on the same travel plan here. We spent all of July in Amsterdam and are now in Brussels. We love Amsterdam and it is on the short list of cities we might move to. Thanks for the memories!
