Yikes, Bikes!

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2012

Well, if you have followed this blog over the years, you know I fall down a lot. It’s all of those old cobbles and tiles that get me down while I am looking up at all the scenery.

And if you ever had to pay attention to where you’re going it’s in Amsterdam! The whole country, for that matter, lives on their bicycles! So when I’m not dodging trams, or cars, or buses, I’m being run down by old ladies on bikes. One million have their own lanes and they have the right away over all other modes of transportation. This is your average “bike parking lot”.

So much water!

And sooooo many tulips!

And so many Bicycles.

This completely level country of canals is overrun with bikes as the major means of transportation.  The bike lanes are bigger than the car lanes and have the right of way. We are talking Millions!

We enjoyed a delightful B&B for 2 nights and crammed one full day with the Gardens and the Rijksmuseum.

This country definitely has personality.  It is definitely COLD and I am wearing 4 layers.windmill
