We ended our European adventure this year with a week in Amsterdam. Our hotel was right in the thick of things: across from the Central Station which was for trains and a major stop for trams. Restaurants, shops and coffee houses as far as the eye could see. Along with people out strolling and biking. Beauty everywhere, truly!

Some of my favorite art stops: Rembrandt's House, the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum. And plenty of people watching/sketching sitting at outdoor cafes sipping wine. Yes please!
