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.)
