Thirty-two years ago my family spent a year living in the town of Amersfoort, just half an hour outside of Amsterdam. Last week my guy and I flew to the Netherlands and took a walk down memory lane...
The Hotel Krasnapolsky on the Dam square in Amsterdam - we stayed here for a few days when we moved to the Netherlands in 1978:
The winter garden restaurant at the Krasnapolsky:
The Mint Tower - part of the original city wall:

One of the many beautiful canals that add to the city's character:

Enjoying a drink at the "Aepjen", a brown bar in the red light district:
Dinner at The Pantry, near the Leidseplein (I had Boerenkool):
Typical Dutch architecture:
As you can see, we were blessed with 4 days of beautiful weather for our trip. I loved the architecture, the canals, the ease with which you can move around the city.
Stay tuned for our trip to Amersfoort.
