Out of The Jurisdiction: Amsterdam

Days 1 - 3 were in Amsterdam, before boarding the ship bound for Cologne and beyond.  There are bicycles everywhere.

I am still away, returning on Sunday.  I have posts scheduled while I am away.  Who knows?  Maybe I will sneak in more photos from the trip . . .

Very interesting angle for the shot. The architecture and bikes "scream" that it's Amsterdam! :)
God bless you!

It sounds like you are on a European River Cruise, which we have never done, but some of our friends have done several and love them. We plan to do some in the future, although we have some other trips planned already (Bhutan and Papua/New Gunea).

It also sounds like you are heading up the Rhine, which is a spectacular itinerary. I look forward to seeing more of your photos. You are going at a time when you should be able to miss the crowds of summer tourists.

LOVE both the angle and the composition. I think it is wonderful that bicycles are so ubiquitous in some European countries. Lucky you to be enjoying this trip. For a fun blog on bikes, go to this web site for Copenhagen Cycle Chic: You'll love it!

I read on a blog the other day that there is a challenge to find parking for all the bikes and it made me wish that we had that problem where I live!

Love the shot from "beyond" and hope that you will treat us again. Enjoy your trip!

Bises,
Genie

I've never been to Amsterdam. I love the brick and the fall leaves strewn everywhere. I just heard that a couple of friends just returned from a Rhine cruise. Now I'm wondering if you might have been on the same cruise.

This picture reminds me a lot of the university campus where I work. I'm sure that building is quite a bit older though!

Looking forward to your holiday pics!

A wonderful Dutch photo of the bikes and architecture! I hope you have returned safely with new, fantastic adventures captured in your camera!

I think you should definitely sneak a few more in Jack, love the perspective on this one.

I did once - some years ago - all Holland, South to North - on bicycle and all on bike roads, little narrow things with little bike sign and all, going through land and forest.
If you like biking you should try.

CaT said...

anything with bikes or how foreigners see the netherlands is interesting to me.. :) especially since i havent been home myself for almost a year...

Dawn said...

Great angle...were you laying on the ground?;)
Hope you rode a bike yourself while visiting? I'd like a picture of you on one please:)
