Amsterdam- City Of Canals


Last Summer we went to Amsterdam with our friends and spent 3 wonderful days in this beautiful city.

Amsterdam- This word rings a bell for lot of words isn’t it? Night Life, Marijuana, Red Light District, very famous Space Cakes. Oh Yes! it will be a lie if I say these words did not fascinate me, it did and I wanted to see for myself after all what is this all about. And hence hopped onto a National Coach(cheapest option to travel across Europe), a ferry ride from Dover to France, and again back to National Coach to Amsterdam.

My this post is not going to talk about the bells I mentioned above, but I want to let you know how I fell in love with this place, by its poise canals, exquisite bridges,a pleasantry party of barge people who are in the boat, and people sitting/walking near the canals.

Amsterdam is a home to 150 canal and 1250 bridges. I always thought Venice is the city of Canals ( well It is) but did not know this Dutch city can give me that flavour or essence too. The best way to explore is this place is to walk or hire a bike or take a canal tour on a boat.

I discovered the canals via a boat ride and exploring through different alleys of the city that always links you to different bridge. I am sharing some pictures to show the beauty of this place.




Am I high on Duvel or it it just the joy πŸ™‚
