AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS
“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.”
The last time I visited that vibrant city was many moons ago; therefore, I was extremely excited to go back and explore all the things I had saved on my list during that time.
While the majority of people traveling to Amsterdam focus on parties and nightlife, there is an incredible amount of beauty, design, culture, and incredible spaces within that city.
In four days in Amsterdam, we managed to bike around the town and spontaneously discover new places. I absolutely adore visiting The Sea at Les Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mero Van Gogh Museum and being able to see in real life the “Sunflowers” painting with more shades of yellow, green, and orange than I can count. Also, I was fascinated by the fact that “The Sea at Les Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer” painting proves that Van Gogh painted the landscape in real-time on the beach during an indy day due to traceable sand in the paint. Isn’t that absolutely fascinating?
While I could write and list my favorite moments and things from that trip, I think the photographs will make a better judgment. Enjoy this magnificent city through my camera lens.
