Public transport

You may have seen some of these guys and girls around town, collecting tourists or saving a soggy rain-soaked biker. They are the bike taxis and are also part of our Amsterdam street scene! They must be super fit, from riding all day collecting passengers – and must thankful we have no hills and tiny bridges. Seems like a more eco-friendly choice when it comes to public transport.

A coffee with a view

One of my favourite spots to work is Brazuca Coffee on Ferdinand Bol and Ceintuurbaan. Not only do they offer excellent and curiously strong coffee – but it comes with a fantastic and exciting view of one of the busiest intersections in Amsterdam. And will only get busier with the new metro line opening up across the street.

Watching all the movement on this intersection is mesmerising. It looks like a whole lot of chaos – with people walking, driving, cycling all over the place – but it’s actually highly organised. I never see any crashes, or even close-calls.

Now that’s what I call entertainment.


Dappermarkt night

Holiday lights warm up the streets of Oost! Even on a rainy night, these folks are flying along Javastraat on their way home from work, heading out with friends or just running errands.

The Dutch have a great sense of style. They love matching their outfits. This cyclist goes one step further, and matches his bike, bag, clothing and shoes. He’s ‘on board’ with a lot more than that ferry!


A bike full of wood

I can only imagine this conversation: Hey man, what are you going to do with all that wood? I don’t know, gonna make something cool. Maybe a nice fence for your garden? For sure.

Seriously, what’s this guy going to do with all those branches? Obviously he just found them and loaded them up on his bike – otherwise he would have a proper transport method, right? Who knows! Oh Amsterdam. How I love you.

I love seeing the range of items Amsterdammers transport on their bikes. A coffee maker, a gas can, even a table… these folks make it look easy! Something to aspire to.

Parkside riding

It is the most beautiful time to ride at the moment… fresh breeze and a little sunshine. Get out on your bike, and head to your favourite park. Like ours, Vondel Park.

TGIF joy ride

Last night these two were speeding down the Weesperzijde – with smiles of course – definitely in a hurry to get to their destination, which likely had beers and bitterballen awaiting them. ;)



When I moved here, I was just hoping to stay on my bike and ride in a straight line. Time sure brings confidence!

Delivering love
