On one of the three days I explored Amsterdam, I went for a walk with a few places in mind to visit. One of them was the Amsterdam Library and the other was an island (that I had no clue where it was located) with unique modern architecture. I set off on my adventure, asking people along the way for directions. First, I passed the Science Center NEMO for children….you can’t see it in this picture, but they grow grass and bushes on the sloped side and people are walking on it! When you cross this bridge, the view is cool!
This photo is out of sequence, but I thought it was cute…the girl having her photo taken by her boyfriend!
Here are another couple of canal pics I couldn’t resist putting up….
O.K…back to my walk. In front of the library, you see this. The library is pretty cool too and I took photos inside…but these are even cooler!
I discovered the island with unique modern architecture is called Java Eiland and is within walking distance from the library. I think this would be a great place to live! It’s a bit off the beaten path with a great location!
Here’s my artsy shot through the cutouts on a bridge…
We explored a lot of Amsterdam…even the Red Light District, but I didn’t take my camera there because I’d heard they don’t like you to take photographs. It would’ve been fine so long as I didn’t take pics of the girls. That’s it for Amsterdam…next we fly to Copenhagen, Denmark to meet our other two traveling companions! See you tomorrow!
