I was in Amsterdam to help my sister pack up her stuff before moving back home to Indonesia for good. After all the packing thingy has done, I still had couple days to visit places like Volendam and Keukenhoff or just wander around Amsie (that's how I call Amsterdam :p). Last time I went to Amsie was in early 2000 and after more than 10 years, I didn't see any significant changes in the city. Of course there are some new buildings but I love the way they restore those beautiful old buildings.
Here's a bunch of my favourite pictures of Holland.....I hope you like them :)
|Welcome to Amsterdam|
|Smits Koffiehuis, Amsterdam Central|
A fishing village called Volendam is a popular tourist attraction in the Netherlands, well known for its old fishing boats and the traditional clothing still worn by some residents.There are many cafes and souvenir shops along the main street. I sat in one of the cafes and sampling their speciality which are assorted delicious seafood while watching the fisherman's activities also the boats come and go through beautiful harbour. People around me were chatting, singing and laughing. Everyone was in a good mood enjoying the sun and sea breeze.
