Dutch delights

My overseas travels earlier this year took me to Holland for a 3 day visit where I met the generous hosts of a house exchange in Italy that would complete my European travels 8 weeks down the track.

As it was 45 years since I last spent time in Holland, it was a delight to see it again through more mature eyes! 
 (I still find the windmills a pleasing sight)


. . . and the numerous pretty canals 


with a nesting swan


and, of course, the many bridges over canals throughout Amsterdam.


Linking up with Our World Tuesday and Outdoor Wednesday
with thanks to the respective hosts
