My trip to Amsterdam - The Netherlands

I was in Amsterdam just before Christmas for 3 days and I really enjoyed it as it's one of those cities where you feel comfortable as soon as you arrive even if you don't know the language.

From the airport to the city you just take a train and in less than 30 minutes you arrive at the central station. At the central station you can just take one of the many trams which will take you whenever you need to go. I stayed in a guest house in the gay area of the city and I only paid 60 euros a night for a double room which in my opinion was a good deal

While I was there I did a city tour which was fairly comprehensive and I learnt quite a few things about the city and I also did a countryside tour where we visited a a fishing town and the windmills

Great shots of a true beauty - even in foggy weather

I really love that first shot.

There is more to come I hope

Yes, it was terrible weather. Deep freeze and snow would have been much better

Indeed great how you managed to make such nice photos (especially the first two are really nice shots) with such a cloudy sky.
