The Friday Photo #91 – Clouds over the canal

Of all the things I love about Amsterdam I think it’s the canals that grab me the most.  Beautiful and ever-changing, they form an integral part of life in the Dutch city and I’d love to live in a houseboat on one even if just for a week or two.

One of the city’s other distinguishing features is its ever changing weather.  Less than five minutes after taking this shot those clouds decided to dump their contents on my head…

  • I stayed on a houseboat hostel when I was there–Houseboat Jonas, seriously the coolest place to stay ever! Highly recommend if you make it back to Amsterdam 🙂

    Spent a week in Amsterdam last year – and seriously it is my favourite European city. The canals, the bikes, the wonky buildings and the overall sense of peace and harmony – I am going back there sometime for longer.

  • that’s one hell of a photo!!!

    you just caused pain!!! i had lost all my photos of amsterdam in 2005 🙁 and seeing your photos … mixed emotions.

  • I hope to live in Amsterdam for a stretch sometime in my life. I love the bikes and the laid back, happy people. It’s hard to live in Europe as an American but I’d love to try and learn Dutch. My great-grandparents immigrated from Holland to the USA and they let the language go in their efforts to learn English. I know a few words but that’s all.
