Sarphatistraat is one of Amsterdam’s main streets. Even if the city is known for all its narrow streets, canals and bridges, some streets are wide and full of trees like in other European capitals. Do you recognize which part is is?
When the sun is shining like this, it’s time to dig out those shorts (again) and wear some sunny yellow shoes to match the lovely weather!
Wear a Lakers jersey! Kobe Bryant’s no less. These types of things are not often spotted here on the streets (do people play basketball here?). But in gorgeous LA weather like this, go for it right?! This chick rocks it.
Our days for wearing shorts and summer sandals are now counted…as we count down the days til the end of the summer. There’s an autumn chill already lurking around the corner. Are you excited for fall, sad to see the summer leave? I’m going to miss my shorts and flip-flops (and my tan), but fall colors in Amsterdam will easily bring a smile to my face.
This is what we call a good friend, I guess. On his way to help out a mate with a flat tire. And looking good by the way!
Summer is in full swing in Amsterdam and everybody is getting to their cafe dates, festivals, beaches and museums by bike. The mornings are getting cooler but the afternoons the weather make for perfect cycling…so get out and enjoy the summer sunshine!
Spotted on Museumplein: casual chic, sporty spice, and too cool for school … which one wins?
Sometimes you just wanna hitch a ride with your Dad. Best view in town!
Summer is in full swing. It is hot and riding your bike along the canals is thus even cooler than usual. But, please do not fade into daydreaming to soon and stay aware of the other season’s symptom: tourists! With their heads in their maps, looking for Amsterdam’s highlights, they might not be aware of your arrival. That is a shame. So here is my plea to all you Amsterdam cyclists out there: please add some more local flavour to our dear tourist’s experience: ring your bike bell politely in advance and just smile and wave while you pass them. Benefits for you: smiles and plenty of admiration for your looks/ localness/ sturdy handling of the steering bar (Please cross out those not applicable!)
