Welcome to “Look at that pretty building…oh there’s Adam and Emily” post. Because if we’re just real with you for a second, Amsterdam was FULL of beautiful buildings. The people were fantastic and so incredibly kind. The food was glorious. The temperature was cold…which we loved. And it was just nice to walk (and walk and walk and walk) around a new city with each other for a couple days.
Without further ado…here are the pretty buildings…
This church is where many of the Engage the Crisis meetings in Amsterdam happened. It was a privilege to be able to see if for ourselves.
I have mixed feelings about all the bikes in Amsterdam. On one hand they’re so quaint-looking and yet they would come out of no where and almost run us off the road if we weren’t paying attention well!
An awesome farmers market was set up outside our hotel every day!
This is the church of St. Nicolas.
The narrowest house in the world!
Centraal Station – when you have to go to on train station over and over again, at least it’s this pretty!
Outside the Anne Frank House. It was a dream of mine to visit and was well worth the long wait in line. In light of the current refugee crisis, it was incredibly moving!
Around the corner from the Anne Frank house is this statue of Anne. It goes almost unrecognized. I knew about it and walked right past it the first time. It was put there as a way of saying that even though this young girl has a significant place in history, she was still just a little girl like all of us at one point in time.
We took a boat tour of the canals. From this point we could see 7 of Amsterdam’s bridges.
