Amsterdam Winter Fun

Thursday, December 13, 2012

Crikey, how cool is Amsterdam? Last year, due to the freezing weather in Europe, huge parts of Amsterdam’s canal system were frozen solid. So the awesome residents took to the frozen canal to enjoy a day of ice-skating, hockey and all out fun! Eek, some even skated all the way to work.
 
How fun is that? Have you ever been to Amsterdam? xo
 
P.S: Also, going Dutch (and Danish).
P.P.S: Plus, sweet ice skating party idea.

I went to Amsterdam last January and it was beyond freezing cold, about -11..but it wasn't so cold that the canals froze! Looks so fun! x

I live in Amsterdam and this is not true! It has been cold last week, but there is no ice! These pics are from last year!

Right, Jen? The city looks so romantic, doesn't it? Just imagine having a winter picnic after hours of ice skating - le sigh!

That is a beautiful scene! I lived in Ottawa and often skated on the canal ... but not as many canals as Amsterdam.
