Amsterdam Street Scenes [part 1]

It's been a while since I last visited Amsterdam. Navigating traffic was a bit tricky with cars, trucks, people on scooters and cyclists all vying for right-of-way. It's busier than ever! The good thing about busy places is that no one notices me snapping away :)
It was rather windy and overcast and at one point it started raining -  in other words, typical Amsterdam weather!

Es ist schon eine Weile her, seit ich zuletzt in Amsterdam war. Der Verkehr war chaotisch: Pkw's, Lkw's, Moped - und Radfahrer wetteifern alle gleichzeitig um die Vorfahrt! Die Stadt ist geschäftiger als je zuvor. Das Gute daran ist, dass ich ungestört Fotos machen kann :)
Es war ziemlich windig und bewölkt. Später fing es an zu regnen - in anderen Worten, typisch Amsterdamer Wetter!

I love the bright pops of colour everywhere  - from people's clothing to shopfronts

  27. Hi Duni! Amsterdam is included in my list of places to see. Hopefully, I'll have the chance to visit the place. If only a plane ticket and hotel accommodation do not cost that much :)

    Ironically, I love the weird weather. As a person who have lived in an always summer country, I appreciate a weather that is a bit cold and refreshing.

    I enjoyed each photo and I love the view on the bridge. So peaceful and relaxing. I love your top, necklace and can I say that we have the same Chucks :)

    Between established brands, I also prefer to discover shops that are managed by starting and independent crafters.

    Have a great week ahead! I truly enjoyed this post.
