From My Trip to Europe - Amsterdam: A City of Canals, Bikes, Bridges, and Charming Homes

By Decorology @decorology_blog
It has been WAY to long since I've done a post on Chris and my 2010 summer backpacking around Europe.  I'm getting close to the end of our trip, but still have Belgium and France to cover.  Today I'm giving you a mini-tour of the charming streets of Amsterdam, undoubtedly one of the most popular destinations in Europe.  The brick row homes are really beautiful, although so many look like they are leaning against their neighbor or about to topple into the canal.  The canals are packed with house boats, and the stone streets with cyclists.

The food in Amsterdam was also superb.  Make sure to try the pancakes!
Hope you enjoyed this little tour!
