Summer’s last days

Rain every day and then one little pocket of sunshine… and it’s shorts and ponytails again.


Winding down

After a big Gay Pride weekend the locals are soaking up the late afternoon sun and biking home…goodnight Amsterdam.

Snuggle up for sunset

Grab your bike and your love and head out to your favorite vista for tonight’s sunset. It’s bound to be a good one.

Riding through the fields

Sometimes you need a little break from the city..doesn’t mean you can’t take your wheels! The gorgeous town of Zaanse Schans is a perfectly picturesque town to visit and ride around in nature. Pack a lunch, take a camera and see a little bit of what our Dutch nature has to offer. 250 years ago the windmills here formed the first industrial site in the world and some of the mills are still functioning! Happy cycling!

Sunset bromance

It’s always nice to catch the last bit of sunshine of the day. Especially when it’s with your buddy, cycling side by side.

TGI Thursday!

The saying goes TGIF, but I’m saying thank goodness it’s Thursday! What a gorgeous afternoon we had here in Amsterdam. I spent some time on the sunny terrace of the Eye. Might even got sunburned! But I love the ferry on sunny days. Where were you?

Hopefully the sun keeps up this magical work til Monday — the nations best holiday — King’s Day!

Sunny days make me feel good

Finally the first real spring days! And what do you do? Ride to your local park and chill out. At the Sarphati Park, in De Pijp, you could barely see the grass. Bikes and people everywhere. Oh ya.

Peddling to Bob Marley

Wasn’t today just amazing? On these types of days, I have Bob Marley stuck in my head. Though it was cold, the sun was shining and the weather was sweet. Makes you want to move your peddling feet. Sunday, here I am!

Bare hands on the handlebars!

The Dutch word for ‘gloves’ is my second all-time favourite Dutch word: handschoenen. Literally translated as ‘hand shoes.’ Yep, that’s what they are: shoes for the hands.

And just as I was getting quite comfortable toting these things around everywhere I go, it seems like it might be time to put them away (the jacket and scarf can stay handy though). Because 15ºC of sun calls for bare hands on the handlebars! Weeeeeeee!

Bare hands on the handlebars!

Happy New Year!
