prinsengracht (amsterdam)

One of my favorite places in Amsterdam…

The Prinsengracht canal. You can see the Westerkerk off in the distance, which is right around the corner of the Anne Frank House. And of course, the coloring of the leaves this time of year, it’s so beautiful, especially when contrasted with the dark bark of this tree…

A better view of the Westerkerk, can you spot the blue crown on top of the church?

I took these photographs quickly right before meeting Olivia Rae of everyday musings for a coffee (and they sampled traditional Dutch pancakes) at Pancakes! Amsterdam (Berenstraat 38). Click here for her beautiful photographs of Amsterdam.

Gotta love the house boats…

And their reflections in the water…

My number one tip for Amsterdam: just wander. Wander the streets. Wander the canals. Get lost.
