My absolute favourite pastime in Amsterdam is boating. From the river and canals, you have a completely different view on things, the city from another beautiful perspective. I will never tire of it.
This last outing happened in September, just after we'd returned from Russia . M. was taking me to the train station, which explains the luggage. Please excuse my rather unfortunate picture at the end, but I just had to share* my boating expertise.
(After much persuasion on my part, M. agreed to let me steer. Don't worry, no goose or human got hurt. This was a very wide stretch on the river. My skills are way too rudimentary to safely navigate the tiny canals of Amsterdam.)
