Today it was miserable outside. Amsterdam is pissing cats and dogs and there is no end in sight. But I can almost forgive this puddly city, because ohh boy, was yesterday a stunner.
B and I have made a little pact to go to the gym every day (ugh) until our summer holiday, but yesterday I couldn’t stomach the thought of being indoors on the cross trainer at the gym while the rare Dutch sun was shinning so bright outside.
So we swapped our gym session for a long walk down the Amstel, our favorite route to soak up lingering sunshine post-work. If you’re ever visiting Amsterdam, my top ‘touristy’ recommendation would be a simple walk along the canals. From boats to bikes to bridges to stacked Dutch houses, a walk though the city will introduce you to Amsterdam’s most charming features. Springtime is especially gorgeous, with blooming flowers to boot. B has some awesomely reflective Ray-Bans, and we’ve decided to take selfies in them all summer long, just cuz.
