A short trip to Amsterdam was my first outing to this unique city. Having lived in capital cities, where bicycles are the ‘enemy’ rather than the norm, it was a refreshing change to find myself in a place where two wheels rule and cars take 3rd spot, after pedestrians.
Oddly enough this didn’t seem to slow the movement of traffic around the city centre at all. Anyone who has driven in rush hour knows it moves slower than a brisk walk. In Amsterdam’s ‘rush’ hour everything flows freely, 2 or 3 times faster than the car congested nightmare of London, for example.
The galley includes a few stray images from some locations around Europe as well, for a bit of variety. Enjoy!
