"Gargoyles & Graffiti"chronicles architectural elements that I find interesting or unique in my travels. Gargoyles are my passion, but today graffiti (which I hate but am learning to love as it is everywhere) is as much a part of architecture as the gargoyles and decorative railings that thrill me.

Amsterdam: Waterways & Bicycles

Amsterdam waterways

When on the Avalon Waterways cruise on the Rhine, the trip included a canal cruise in Amsterdam. This will be a photo post of what we saw.

Notice all the bicycles in the bike parking garage

Amsterdam probably has more bicycles per capita than any other city. They are everywhere!


  1. That is a lot of bicycles. How is it to get around? Crowded?

  2. Yes, very crowded.It was kind of intimidating walking around by the port. Much quieter in the museum district.

  3. Yes, Heather. We stayed at a very nice hotel near the Van Gogh. Now I hear the tour guide's voice pronouncing Van Gogh whenever I type the words. It sounded almost like she had something stuck in her throat! hahaha
