Amsterdam

Remember I mentioned a few weeks ago that I was going on holiday to Amsterdam? Unfortunately, I’ve been ‘a bit tied up’ lately (thanks Missus!). So, I’ve only just got the opportunity to share some of my holiday snaps with you. Enjoy...

This is me ready for the off.



Following a one-hour drive, we finally reached the hotel in Amsterdam. Man, I was exhausted from the journey.




However, I soon perked up. Right, where are we going first?




We soon hit the town with a leisurely walk along Amsterdam’s many canals .




Some of the houses were booti-ful.




Of course, Missus made me stop occasionally for some photo-opportunities.




Holland is famous for its flowers and we passed through Amsterdam’s main flower market.




I stopped by to take a sniff.




Missus made sure that we ventured down one of Amsterdam’s main shopping streets. Unfortunately Dad lost his way!




Then we ended up in ‘Dam Square’.




They sure have big dogs in Amsterdam. Look at the size of those brown ones behind me!



I managed to sit calmly for this photo. In reality I was terrified of those big dogs.



Unfortunately, I didn’t get to visit Amsterdam’s famed Red Light District.



Not to be deterred, I’ve made my own video in honour of the special character of Amsterdam. Of course there is the Red Light District and it’s sex trade. There are hundreds of Coffee Shops in which you can easily buy soft drugs. And, there are numerous restaurants selling all of my favourite foods. So, I’ve called the video: “Sex, Drugs and Sausage Rolls.”

Anyway, I really enjoyed my holiday and can’t wait to go away again.

We enjoy your picture show and the clip. Amsterdam is a beautiful city, my parents had been there during an European tour. Homer, in the clip, looked like you busy sniffing the sidewalk, didn't care about shopping, right?
Muahhh!

The Other Homer (TOH),
Great video clip. Did you really leave p-mail on the store? That's a nice walking harness you were sporting. Much better than the old CHOKE chains we use. Dad says thanks for the history of the Red light district. Loved your photos too. Glad those big dogs didn't chase you. Cool Drool. OBTW: Dad rescue transport was cancelled this morning but mom had a "Honey Do" list for him so he has done his 40 things yet.
