I spend most of my visits to Amsterdam in and around the Red Light District.
The pictures in this article are from that area and nearby.
On my first visit to Amsterdam, I took a train from Paris. It was a nice ride. I think it was about 4 hours.
I only stayed one day on my first visit then took the train back to Paris to meet a friend.
On all of my other trips I flew in directly to Schiphol Airport.
I went during the Holiday season because I love that time of the year.
Everyone seems to be in a good mood and there’s also Holiday decorations.
You can’t visit Amsterdam without seeing a wooden shoe. They’re famous for them.
I always see the human statues everywhere I travel. I always tip them for a photo.
Here’s anther one. I bet his arms get tired.
This guy was making a sand sculpture. I hope he’s not finished with it. It looks like a dead dog, lol.
I always like to photograph the unique vehicles I see on my travels to share with others.
Amsterdam has some very tiny vehicles.
Here’s a pedal taxi. You’ll see many different types as you travel the city. I’ve used them and they’re a great, fast way to get around.
This is one strange looking bicycle.
I saw this kid’s four wheeler and had to get a photo.
This little truck is used for advertising the “Hash, Marijuana, Hemp Museum”.
Here’s another one of those pedal taxi’s I told you about.
I can’r imagine driving this in America, lol.
There’s barely enough room for you and your groceries.
This car would fit inside my SUV.
During the Holiday’s, the streets are always crowded with revelers and shoppers.
It’s a good idea to watch out for pick pockets. I’ve seen many on my trips to Amsterdam.
Some throw coins on the street to lure you. When you lean over to pick up the coins, they pick your pocket and you lose all of your money for a few little coins.
This is a urinal. People can see you using it as they walk by. Not very private.
You’ll see red in the streets during the Holiday’s.
Here’s where it comes from. Everyone shoots off fireworks in the streets.
In Amsterdam’s Red Light District, you can do many things. Like get a tattoo…
Visit a coffee shop or two…
And experience the nightlife.
