Wordless Wednesday! September 27, 2016

Hello Amsterdam!
We caught a train from Zaltbommel yesterday
morning to Amsterdam and now after checking
into our hotel we wandered and found a
good place to eat before wandering around some more!
We bought our tickets for the Rijksmuseum
and will explore and enjoy after our breakfast!
Tomorrow we fly home-so we will make the most of our day. Our weather is perfect so we will walk everywhere!
Here are a few photos from yesterday...
 
 
Leaving Zaltbommel

 
Arriving at Utrecht Centraal where we transferred
to the train going to Amsterdam Centraal
 

 
Rijksmuseum is only a block from our hotel.
Hotel Cornelisz is a nice hotel with friendly people.
 

 
Rijksmuseum gardens...

 
Bicycles are the main way for the locals
to commute and you need to look out for them!

 
 
 
 
 

 
Cheers!

 
I love all the canals and houseboats alongside
and all the different boats...  

 
Have a lovely day today!
~~~

Amsterdam is a great city, one of the few international cities I've been to. One of my favorite sightings there is not far from the central train station, a sign hanging from a pole that says "4,567 miles to Wall Drug." (Not sure of the number.) If you've ever been to South Dakota, you understand the humor...

Beautiful! How i wish my city were bicycle friendly. It's too far to go to most places by bicycle, though.
