sunday walk along the amstel.

Apr 3, 2012
Last weekend, while my crazy boyfriend went surfing in the freezing North Sea ( 7°C !!!), I opted out of the fun and went for a walk along the Amstel instead.
It is interesting to see, how much life revolves around water here in Amsterdam. People go boating, rowing,walking, running or living at the riverbanks. In houseboats. Not sure what it is, but I have this idea in my head, how living on a houseboat would be so romantic and cozy. With a little boat instead of a car in your "backyard", to just take off and head out for an adventure at any given time. 
They come in all shapes and sizes. Some look like solid houses, while others are reconstructed real boats. What they all have in common though, is the love and attention to detail that went into styling, furnishing and decorating.




Who knows. Maybe one day, I'll get to live in my own houseboat.
With chickens in the front yard, naturally.

I'm lucky enough to live on a boat, on the river Cam in Cambridge. It's wonderful!
Hope one day you also can follow your dream to live afloat!
