Visit to Amsterdam - February 2005
Two of our friends live in Amsterdam and we wanted to go to visit them, since they own one of the old houses on a canal in the centre. It is just as lovely as we had expected - and the city is also great, somewhere we really want to go back to.
|The corner of Reguliersgracht and Keisersgracht||Looking along the Reguliersgracht from the Herengracht, on a boat trip|
|Replica of the Batavia, at the Nederlands Scheepvart Museum||Interor of the American Hotel, Leidseplein|
|Koninklijk Paleis, on the Dam square at the heart of Old Amsterdam||The Nieuwe Kerk, also on the Dam square|
|The Westerkerk, a landmark on the Prinsengracht||An unexpected bonus! - a Wharram catamaran (Hitia 14, similar in size to Aoraki), found on the Lijnbaans gracht|
|Higgledy piggledy houses on the Amstel near Rembrandtplein||Canal side houses in Reguliersgracht|
We thought Amsterdam is a lovely city, and want to go back in warmer weather; we even had some snow whilst we were there!
