Amsterdam

The capitol of The Netherlands and where I live.

There is so much more to Amsterdam than the reputation it has outside The Netherlands. For those of us living here, it has much going for it including city walks along, or boat rides on the canals, a multitude of museums to visit and many parks for a picnic or short walk within nature.

Everything shown here are things I've done in Amsterdam since starting the site in 2019. The focus is on walks, museums and galleries.
