The Friday Photo #23 – Life on an Amsterdam canal

Life on an Amsterdam canal

Amsterdam is a beautiful city all through the year, but when the sun is shining the place just sparkles.  Nowhere is this more apparent than around the dozens of canals that form an integral part of the city.  Houseboats and tour boats fill the waterways while the wandering pedestrians keep up their fluid intake in one of the hundreds of waterside bars and cafes.  Make like the locals when you’re here – hire or borrow a bike and head out for a day exploring the wetter side of the Dutch capital.

      You and me both ... despite the cold, damp, rocking and whatever else the reality might be like, the all round awesomeness would have me jumping all over the chance to live on one! Plus being able to casually slip into conversation at the bar with a hot girl "Oh, would you like to come back to my houseboat?"...

Would you like to share your thoughts?
