Day 3: Sunday, September 10

The First Full Day in Amsterdam

After a good long sleep (12 hours!) to get rid of the jet lag, we were ready to take on Amsterdam. For our first day in this amazing city, we chose to do something a little different and booked a “photo tour” of Amsterdam with a company called Amsterdam Photo Safari (www.amsterdamphotosafari.com).

We met our wonderful host/guide/photographer, Chris Page, shortly after 11:00AM at Amsterdam’s Centraal Station (sorry we were a little late, Chris!). Over the next 6 hours Chris led us on an awesome, meandering exploration of the spiderweb-like streets of the city. We saw many sites that the normal tourist doesn’t usually see.

Here’s a few shots from our Amsterdam Photo Safari with Chris:

Tour boat on the Amstel
St. Olaf’s Chapel
Red Light District – not a hooker in sight!
Cafe at The Oude Kerk (Old Church)
Amsterdam city flag
The narrowest house in Amsterdam (the bottom is a bakery, and the second floor is a tea room).
Wooden bikes!
Vince & our excellent host for the day, Chris Page
How cute is this? Amsterdam’s version of an SUV. Note the electric charging cable, bottom left.

 

A great tour of a great city!
