Travel Pic Thursday: Amsterdam

Happy Thursday Everyone!

Unlike I usually do, this week’s travel pic isn’t of a single sight, but rather simply a stroll through Amsterdam.

I’ve travelled to many locations that just didn’t live up to my expectations: places didn’t seem quite as quaint as travel books claim, the streets weren’t quite as lovely (or poop-free) as hoped, or the people weren’t as welcoming as rumor would have you believe. But Amsterdam was exactly as expected: skinny houses, loads of bikes, tall and gorgeous people, and of course the canals.

Wandering around Amsterdam is like walking through a postcard (sometimes a pot-scented postcard, but I’ve smelled way worse things in my travels).

There’s the canals…

And the skinny houses….

And the houseboats.

And sometimes the unexpected hood ornament!

Been to Amsterdam? Did it live up to your expectations? Share your thoughts!!

    I was only in Amsterdam for an overnight train to Paris, so I didn’t see much of the city. It looks wonderful though. By day, anyway. I wonder if by night it gets a little seedy… 😉
