A Tour in Amsterdam...

Amsterdam, 06 June 2010

She took the train from Eindhoven to Amsterdam, where we met, so she could visit the city ;-)
It was an important moment for us ;-) We met each other after two blogging years ;-)
We had only a few hours because she needed to be in Tilburg about 7 o'clock.

From the Centraal Station, I took her to the Nieuwe Kerk...

We took some pics of this church where Prince Willem-Alexander and Princess Maxima were married (02.02.2002).

Well, we decided to walk and go in direction of the Amsterdams Historisch Museum where we had our lunch...

After relaxing a bit and have an unexpecting meeting with someone I had lunch two days before ;-), we went to the Begijnhof...

...where we could appreciate the Het Houten Huis, the oldest house in Amsterdam (around 1420) and one of the only two wooden-front houses in the city.

And now, the place where she felt really delighted: Saint Francis Church...

We stayed there to appreciate this magnificent piece of art ;-) If you come to Amsterdam, visit this church. I'm sure you will like it very much!

Our "tour" was almost at the end...

After some "souvenirs" for her dear ones and a new pair of shoes, we were ready to return to Centraal Station: she went to Tilburg and I to Almere.

Boa viagem ate Portugal, Susana! Beijinhos ;-)

Pena foi o tempo, estava de chuvinha... e a confusao de sempre de duas arterias que nao gosto, Damrak and Kalverstraat. Para a proxima, vou e venho de electrico, ou escolho outro percurso pedonal.
Para evitar a confusao...

Lovely photos, Sandra! I've made a mental note of the church and the house, because I haven't been there yet.
You had a good time, it seems! Gelukkig maar! (glad to hear!)

Sandra,

Obrigado pela companhia e pela maravilhosa tour em Amsterdão. Foi de facto pequenina mas cheia de coisas bonitas (foi pena o cansaço que trazia e o raio das botas que quase me mataram!).
Devo agradecer-te pela disponibilidade e carinho com que me presenteaste na minha breve visita à Holanda. Foi óptimo conhecer-te pessoalmente depois de mails para lá e para cá.
Permitiste-me voltar a ter um cantinho do céu com a visita à Igreja de S. Francisco. Que coisa linda!
Por tudo o meu muito obrigado boa amiga. Que também tu tenhas tão bons momentos pela vida fora como os que proporcionas.
Beijinhos

Susana
