It seems every tourist that visits Amsterdam makes an obligatory stop at the iconic I amsterdam structural sign located in front of the Rijksmuseum. I am no exception. The catchphrase was initially used as a marketing campaign to promote the city and its businesses, but quickly became a motto that represents the pride and dedication the people have for their beautiful city.
The pride extends to tourists as well, as I am proud to have visited this lovely city myself this past September. Seeing and experiencing with my own eyes this charming city filled with tree-lined canals, abundant art and historical architecture, it has become one of my most favorite destinations to visit. Even just the simple observation of the many flowers adorning almost every home’s front steps has made me fall in love with this city.
I have a couple more posts lined up for the next few days — one of a photo essay of bicycles in Amsterdam and another of the flower auction in Alsmeer. I’m looking forward to sharing them with you.
Happy Friday and have a wonderful weekend!
