Amsterdam, located in the Netherlands, Europe, is a truly beautiful city of bikers. Built on water, its long pretty canals and fun, narrow streets make the place a truly unique and fantastic spot for riding a bicycle to visit different sightseeing locations. Just by looking at the sides of the streets in the city, one can immediately grasp that Amsterdam is all about having fun and enjoying life. All the colorful and playful bicycles have their own story to tell.
For a daydreamer, Amsterdam offers a great deal of versatility and lots of new interesting perspectives. It is a photographer’s heaven where one can become amazed at every street corner. There are endless opportunities for bumping into marvellous finds and aesthetic details. Being a devoted bicycle fan, I could have spent hours just marvelling at their beauty and shape. Luckily, I managed to come across some serious jewels during my trip.
I really loved the goofy-looking mint green bicycle and the pastel-colored striped one! Aren’t they just adorable? Especially, the striped one seems like a cool, urban tiger screaming for attention. Also, the “I am happy” sticker on the bicycle basket below made me smile big time. Who comes up with stuff like this? Just brilliant!
For me, the vast amount of bicycles was simply breathtaking. You could look anywhere and still find something worth photographing. Amsterdam definitely didn’t let me down. During my trip, I managed to capture some absolutely gorgeous things (more to come soon!) and, most importantly, I got several remarkable, life-lasting memories that I will cherish in my heart for many years to come. Yes, I’ll admit it: Amsterdam stole my heart. And I, for one, am determined to return one day. For sure. Until then, I will just have to take another look at my photographs and breathe a big, long sigh. I am already longing back. But hey, just between you and me, I think Amsterdam is missing me too.
