Canal Ride | Amsterdam

It might be the most stereotypical thing for tourists to do, but we just couldn't resist going on a canal ride. After all, Amsterdam is often called the Venice of the North because of the more than 100 kilometres of canals, and many islands and bridges.  (Fun fact, Taras's hometown of St. Petersburg, Russia is also called Venice of the North!) After a particularly late night, the tour was very relaxing.  I could have sat on that boat all day, looking down the beautiful canals and admiring the quirky house boats.  Taras especially enjoyed riding through the port area and seeing all the industrial ships.


We loved learning that furniture is hoisted into the homes using these specially purposed hooks.
