The ever-changing skies of Amsterdam




Our European holiday started with a 10-day cruise on the Viking Pride, above, left, on the rivers and canals of The Netherlands and Belgium. We started in Amsterdam, first landing in Schiphol Airport and taking a train from there to the port where our ship awaited us.



The sky was several different shades of blue, with clouds coming and going the whole time we were there. As you may have heard elsewhere, there's never a dull moment in Amsterdam!

Beautiful. It always amazed this land locked lady when I see pictures of streets and buildings right up against rivers or lakes.
