A is for Amsterdam and Antwerp

"Canal bikes" for rent in Amsterdam, March, 2011.
I think they look a little like attached pairs of wooden shoes.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands, March, 2011.

Antwerp, March, 2011.

Antwerp, Belgium, which we visited during our Tulips and Windmills cruise with Viking River Cruises in March of this year. We enjoyed The Netherlands and Belgium very much.

Your trip is something I have always wanted to do. I guess I will have to keep on dreaming. Terrific photos.

Hah! I was considering Amsterdam too.... in fact I even gave a few moments thought to going through the entire ABC of place I'd been to... but then I forced a reality check on myself and realized the next months could turn insane on me, and it would be insane OF me to commit to such a project. Well, glad I got to visit Amsterdam through your and Dick's lenses.

Nice shots, and the canal bikes do look like wooden shoes.

I probably will be more often now in Amsterdam. My son finally found a house and bought it ! It sits in the middle of the sea, at least it looks like on an artificial extension of Amsterdam. Very difficult to describe. I only saw pictures and didn't understand anything, lol !

I love the canal bikes and the wonderful architecture.

I love the way the houses in Amsterdam lean forward. The river cruises are so much fun aren't they?

I'm guessing it was a little cold to interest people in the canal bikes.

Beverley Baird said...

What lovely old buildings! And yes, they do look like shoes!

Two great "A" cities! I have been fortunate to have visited both of them and your photos portray them well!

Hildred and Charles said...

So pleased to have more of your travel pictures, Kay, - these are magnificent.

Paula Scott said...

Beautiful again! And, I agree. Those canal bikes look like huge white wooden shoes (must be on purpose).

Rajesh said...

Wonderful shots of the city.

Ann said...

so did you go on the "clogs" and exercise your legs?

Seasons said...

If the first picture looks like wooden shoes, the last one looks like a long bar of dark chocolate. What a beautiful place to spend time in! That lamppost caught my attention amid everything. Thanks for sharing!

Kathy said...

Love your photos of the "A" cities.
