Welcome to Amsterdam

Amsterdam (always uttered with a thick Sean Connery/James Bond brogue) really is the picture postcard perfect city every one I know who has ever visited the place has always talked about. We were lucky enough to enjoy three perfect, golden days there, ambling around the canals, taking in all the sites and lolling abut the city generally. The city of Spinoza and Vermeer really is amazing - a kind of tolerant, prosperous and liberal ideal. With Andrea resting back at the hotel, I spent a couple of blissful hours wandering the canals in the most golden light, quite sure I had stumbled upon some other worldly utopia.
