Spring in Amsterdam

Slowly but surely, spring is conquering the canals of Amsterdam, which makes me fall in love with the numerous beautiful facades of the city even more. Particularly when they proove spring’s arrival:

What’s more, Amsterdam is blossoming everywhere! I adore my adoptive home for its obsession about plants.  I’ve always been engaged with urban gardening and Critical Mass (a cycling movement) – two things which are redundant in Amsterdam. Why? The streets are under control of the cyclists here anyway. And: I have hardly ever seen a city greener than this. See for yourself:

Less pleasing about spring in Amsterdam: the weather. Rain clouds alternate with sunshine easily and quite spontaneously, so it was time to purchase something waterproof after all. I’m still amazed I survived more than 3 years in Hamburg without a hooded parka. By the way: If you plan to live the real Amsterdam experience, do without the hood. I seem to be the only one holding an umbrella when it’s raining cats and dogs.

But despite the weather, be sure that Amsterdam loves you:
