Amsterdam (He He)


Alright, I know everyone goes to Amsterdam to party, and if you want to party, Amsterdam does not disappoint, but it is also a fantastic city just to site see. Most of the locals are very laid back and tourist friendly. I don't know if it is because of all the elicit activities, but the city seems to be pretty easy going. Everyone was friendly and eager to help with directions or suggestions.


As I stated, Amsterdam isn't necessarily just a place to have bachelor parties; I think parts of it are pretty "family friendly." There is the red light district, which is an adults only zone, but other than that, I think Amsterdam would be a cool place to visit with the family.

There are museums, including the Rijksmuseum, canal cruises, flower markets, tons of restaurants and a lot of other things to see in Amsterdam. One of my favorite things was watching all the people on bicycles. They ride bicycles everywhere, at all hours and it just seems so much fun for some reason. I have a bike and it is not nearly as much fun to ride it as it looks to be in Amsterdam.

Angela - I love your photo! OF course I can get a little picky and say either crop out the hand in it and add a bit more contrast into your pic, it will help a lot. Use that in a photo editor as I'm learning everyone just does.

It's centered well which I like. Sometimes your tiny point and shoot just doesn't have enough pixels to beat those 6 plus megapix that dominate. I'm slowly learning and would love to help you along the way.

Check this out too.

Oh yes - 2 more.

One later suggestion since you can't leave a comment at the same time as you check out the blog, just crop it at the bottom and it will fix the problem of the finger!

We saw trips to amsterdam for airfare only $499 or so. P and I so wanted to just go! But I must wait to do anything... Ah to dream!

Angela - you take some wonderful pictures!!! I was here earlier but couldn't leave a comment, a blogger glitch I imagine.

I've been to Amsterdam twice, but both times my kids were with me so I haven't been able to sample the party side of Amsterdam. Maybe next time.

Love your new profile pic, btw. So creative!
