Portraits of Amsterdam

This Saturday, we have compiled a photo essay of what we consider to be our best shots of the beautiful city of Amsterdam.

I’m not sure how I took this.

Who else really loves this style of building?

An avenue in Amsterdam with old buildings, lots of people, a tram station and rails, and lots of people.

I’m jealous of this public transit and bike lanes.

    I love the first one simply because it’s stunning, but also the public transportation one! I wish I could bike to work but have to rely on the train.
