Around Amsterdam: Love the place you live

Now that the sun is shining in the late afternoon it's nice to go for early evening walks. This a great little time to slow down and catch up before or after dinner.

Sometimes we like to grab a few Belgian beers and sit along the water. I snapped a few photos the other day while wandering our 'hood, enjoy!

 


A few weeks ago I joined Design Mom's Love the Place you Live link up. I love the idea and want to do a little spin off of my own. A few things I love about living here in Amsterdam: famous museums, public parks, picturesque buildings, scenic canals, quaint neighborhood cafes and bustling markets all just a little bike ride away!

Sometimes I feel so lucky plus you know lately, I'm all about finding simple pleasures to be thankful for. So, in upcoming posts I'll be sharing some more of my favorite spots around the city (yup, that might be a fancy excuse to visit museums and go out for cakes and coffees more often :)

Tell me, what do you love about the place you live?

  1. Wonderful shots!
    What I most like about the place where I live is pretty much the same you like in A'dam - the old architecture, the beautiful canals, the cafés and terraces, all the green you see in and around the city; not for nothing was Zwolle voted the greenest city in Europe in 2006. Yep, I'm a proud "blauwvinger" ("blue finger" is a nickname for the residents of Zwolle).

    1. Thanks! I haven't visited Zwolle yet, maybe a trip will happen when more of the green starts popping up later this spring!

  2. while i come from a world of sunshine and nice days, norway does not have those quite as often, so i LOVE when there is sun to walk around the parks in oslo or bergen and admire the locals who bring coolers and baskets full of berries and sandwiches. it really is charming. i also love the cafes. oslo has no shortage of cafes for sure!

    1. Ohhh, I would really love to spend more time in Oslo again and especially Bergen! It looks like such an adorable, quaint little place...maybe one day! :)

  3. Thank you for popping over to my space today -- it's always a delight to connect with fellow wanderlusters in NL. Let me know the next time you're in Utrecht, and we'll have a coffee! I'd love to swap stories. (:
