Amsterdam revisited

A brief guided tour of Amsterdam, just for you, Relax Max. Just for you.

First the canals and canal-side roads.

Then the multitude of bridges and locks.

An amazing assortment of boats, from the ridiculous to the sublime.

The unique styles of architecture.

And after that whirlwind tour, would you visit the flower market?

Then a meal at a canal-side restaurant...

or the floating Sea Palace Chinese reataurant.

Or best of all, the Vijff Vlieghen Restaurant. Touristy in a way, but wonderful food, wonderful service and a truly wonderful setting.

I know, I bet you'd just prefer some yummy biscuits.


  1. Beautiful shots!! I haven't been to A'dam in years. Such a wonderful place...

  2. Oh, that brought back memories. It also made me hungry!

  3. Great photos as usual. L and I are off to Brussels next weekend. I must try and get some pictures as good as these.

  4. Oh! ThankyouThankyouThankyou.

    Thank you!

    Max and Yummy are drooling. Much better than Yummy Biscuits! :)

    Some of us will never visit that delightful-looking place (and we know who we are!) so we certainly thank the generous a. for her charity.

    Do you have a Flickr account?--Max wants to see even more...even the ones a. doesn't think are up to her standards!

    Much love, and thanks again ever so much! ")

    Max and Yummy

  5. PS-how do you like Max's new avatar? He stole it from a Rolling Stones album cover. (Please don't say you think it's disgusting, or else Max will have to change it again really quick--back to the little dog one.) :)

  6. Awesome pics. I have never been to Amsterdam. That's one place I would love to visit. The city just makes me think "Old World". I love that. Thanks for sharing your pictures.

  7. I spent several days in Amsterdam a few years ago - brings back some memories :)

  8. I haven't been to Amsterdam in years it's nice to see it from your point of view.
