Amsterdam is blooming
Apart from clogs, cheese and Johan Cruijff, the Netherlands is also known for its bad weather. Rain, snow, gusts of wind, just a few things you have to handle during a typical Amsterdam winter. But the bikes across the city are still in full bloom, meaning you can enjoy a nice bouquet of flowers on almost any street corner.
So if you’re planning to visit Amsterdam, and your cityguide says that the Dutch winters are gloomy and boring: they have clearly not taken into account the Amsterdam flowers that are spread throughout the entire city.
