  1. There are canals
  2. The canals are pretty
  3. Not many things more romantic than a warm spring picnic on a boat bobbing lightly on an Amsterdam canal
  4. Good Surinamese food. Thanks to colonialism maybe?
  5. Above the floating flower market
  6. Photo booth shenanigans
  7. Gloomy day but good weather for a morning run
  8. Even Dutch scones are cute
  9. Caffeination Mini at the Speaker Village
  10. Dome
  11. EYE museum, sadly one week away from opening the next exhibition

  18. Swingtime
  19. Sidewalk flowers, tulips of course
  20. Pretty and fluffy meringues

  23. More canal views at the entrance to the festival grounds for TNW
  24. More purple lights

  26. Decent running weather, very much like SF all the time... just a little bit grayer, chillier, and windier than you expect or want
  27. Foreshadowing frites to come
  28. Fresh made stroopwafel, still warm from the press, caramel gooey, from the original stroopwafel truck in Albert Cuypmarket. To die for
  29. Surfer hangout vibes, knotted ropes, lush green hanging plants, puffer fish light fixture, aloha signage. All to be found at CT Coffee & Coconuts, housed in a three-story former cinema

  31. Street art
  32. Bright flowers still pretty on a gloomy day
  33. Rijksmuseum!! So good
  34. Rembrandt, Night Watch
    It actually wasn't meant to be a night scene originally but the paint got darkened over time and people assumed from the darkness it was a night watch. Actually it's an interior lit by sunlight through a window
  35. I <3 Impressionism, especially pointillism
    Missed out on the Van Gogh museum but happy to see some of his work at Rijksmuseum!
  36. The classiest of boat rides: Domino's, beer and wine
