Sunday photo album: Amsterdam

I'm the first to admit that I wasn't at the top of my photography game on this trip to Amsterdam back in 2011. I've been using the same Canon camera I got in Tenerife around five years ago (we took advantage of the tax free situation on a holiday there) and I'm starting to think it's time to invest in an SLR camera.

Any suggestions?

Anyway, you don't care about my camera. We flew to Amsterdam for a weekend break from Leeds Bradford and took the train from Schipol Airport (one of my favourite airports - it has a casino! And sofas! Airports never have sofas!) into the centre of Amsterdam to begin our city break.

I've been to Holland plenty of times before but mainly to visit family friends on the outskirts of Amsterdam and in other cities like Rotterdam. I love Holland.

We had a fun weekend walking around the city and finding our way around streets called Himmerlaanderstraat and the like. Sadly the weather wasn't the best and the rain thwarted most of our plans which meant we had to dodge the rain in and out of bars *sigh*

Here's a few snapshots from our trip:

Have you been to Amsterdam? Did you smoke a doobie? I think we might be the only person to go there and not do THAT. We did the other thing, but not that :) You know what I'm talking about!
