In Amsterdam, bikes are everywhere!
Throughout the Netherlands, bicycles are a main form of transportation for commuting and just getting around town and country. I recently took these photos of Amsterdam’s bikes and boats.
To me, it seems that bikes give residents and sightseers a sense of freedom — the freedom to move around easily and quickly over the bridges and through the narrow streets. Next time, I’ll rent one, too.
And more bikes!
In a city with so many canals there are boats of all kinds, including the houseboats that are so prevalent as holiday rentals and homes.
I wish I’d had the time to visit the Houseboat Museum (an actual houseboat, not a building) to get a feel of what it’s like to live on one.
Then there are those boats used for basic transportation.
More to come about Amsterdam!
