I love Amsterdam and long to return someday. At this time last year, only three weeks remained until the day my plane touched down in the Netherlands. This week’s photo challenge calls for posting a series of pictures that represent a good day. Though long and exhausting, that first day involved arriving midday, catching a train, walking to the hotel in the Jordaan District, finding out the room wasn’t ready yet, gorging on pancakes in the Upstairs Pancake House before taking a canal ride, eating some of the best seafood ever at Visaandeschelde, and then wandering in the Red Light District.
Three days and two nights was not enough to explore this exquisitely captivating city. I want to wander and get lost forever in Amsterdam.
Feel free to advance through the slides below for highlights of that first day.
