Trip To Amsterdam By My Son !


Hello  Precious  Fellows!


hope  and  pray   that   all   of  you are   enjoying   your   holiday   season   with   your  loved  ones  so  nicely !

Winter   sounds  in  it's  extreme   mood  though  hopefully   it  is  not   disabling  you   to  capture  and   freeze   the  beauty  of  present   moments   for  you  and  preserve   them  as   splending   memories :)


My   eldest   son   who  lives   in  munich   for   his  masters  visited  the   amsterdam   during  his  holidays   and    sent   me   glimpse   of   his   trip .

I  am   sharing   them   with   you   hope  you   like   the  peek.


I  specially  LOVED  the  excessive  presence  of  beautiful  canals  in  the  capital   city   of  Netherland !


                                                    Amsterdam  the  capital  of  Netherland


                                            Beautiful   evening   lights   and  crowd

                                                     Remarkably captured  i  think

      Piece  of  my  heart  ,my  eldest   son! he  missed  being with  us  in  his  holidays  he  siad he  will  come  in  next  to  home  for  sure !  we  miss  him  a  looot!

                     Hotel  room  where  my  son  stayed  with  his  three  friends


                                               Tram  is  crossing   the   crowded  area 
                                          Absolutely   marvelous  building


                                                   i  think  train  or   tram  track

                          Gorgeous!        fog  created  mysterious  appeal   in  the  view



                         he  said  air  was  loaded  with  water  though  was   not  raining



                                      He  loved  the  canal  views  so  much

        Reflections  have  their  own  language  ,lights  try   to   pave  their  way  in  the  deep   silent  heart  of  water


                 Place  where  everybody  seem  to  draw  his  imagination  freely !



                                            A  beautiful  building  decorated  as  a  gift

                                     she  seems   to  lost  in  her  imagery completely :)


                                                  another  stunning  view of  canal


                 my  son  complains about  his  phone  cam  to  not  capturing  the  evening  so  well

                      Due  to  christmas  season  people  look  so  excited  and  enthusiastic
      I  can  imagine  the  serenity  my  son  would  have enjoyed  while  standing  there


                       lovely  reflections  of  lights  smiling  in  the  mirror  of  water


            Looks  someone  parted  the  buildings  through  the  long  line  of  water

                                                          i  liked  the   neatness here
             amazingly   lighented  to  reflect  the  sensational   joy  of  the  season

                   May  be   someone  draw  the  transformation  of  a  man  to  monster  i  guess




this  is  1:20  pm .  temp  is  20  though   feels   like   15   as  it  is  quite  cold  .

In  our   home   labours  are  working  to  renovate  our  12  years  old  floors  who   got   very   bad .Work  is  being  done  since   two  weeks  and  will  take  two  more  weeks  probably.


I  am   taking  my   medicines  and   manage  to  take  my   walks  to  stay   active  .Feeling  fine  just   missing  my   son   though  we  are  in  constant  touch .

Leaving  for  now   by   saying  good  luck   to  all  of  you   dear   friends!


Take   great   care  

Stay   Positive   and   strong  ,you   are   the  one  who   can   save  you  ,just   stay   connected  with   your  Maker and  he  will  give  some  of  his  strength   to   you   to   handle  everything  miraculously !

God   Bless  You  All!!!

  1. I grown there and be there still often - but not so much anymore in the centrum. I think when you living for good there many Amsterdam people find it so crowd ,that you see it with another eyes. I love the city Florance but the people there move because for all the crowd For hollidays are big city's nice to see ..

  22. Thank you for sharing the Amsterdam pictures Baili. I have been to The Netherlands several times. It is a neat and interesting country and most of the people speak good English. I was sorry to hear that you are taking medicines but I cannot even guess why as this is the very first time I have visited your blog. Greetings from Yorkshire in England!

    1. thank you for your kind response !

      i am glad you have visited the Netherland so far .
      In munich my son feels the language barriers though Amsterdam is good to have people who speak english or at least understand and this is most probably because of that place is always crowded with foreigners .

      I have survived from stomach ulcer ,now fighting with possibility of throat ulcer and for this i am taking medicines ,life is still beyond beautiful :)

  23. I have never been to the Netherlands so I am delighted to see your son's pictures, baili! It looks truly beautiful and I especially liked the scenes with fog in them. I see your son is being smart and wearing a warm scarf :)

    I hope your throat is improving, dear friend. Wishing you good health as the new year begins.

Glad that you enjoyed the views through my son'son'phone camera though he doesn't like the result of it and avoid to take much pics but i insist that he should capture the moments as they just pass with a blink of an eye and all that remains is memories.

      Yes my throat is better and bleeding is very less and once in a while. I am thankful that you remembered my problem and asked about it thank you so much my friend. Hope either you are feeling out of your backache and having pain free days !

  35. thank you for these wonderful photos, I was in Amsterdam just about a month ago or less and it really did look like this, except that there was heavy snow which had fallen rather unseasonably. There are so many beautiful places to see there. I recognised the children drawing in the Rijksmuseum. It looks as if your son is making the most of his stay there, how lovely it to be young and see new places!

      I have read your post about your trip to Amsterdam in spite of snow you were able to take some stunning shots and i loved them!

      Thank you for mentioning the name of drawing place as my son forgot this one when i asked.

      Yes in this enthusiastic age travelling the world and exploring the new cultures, people and customs is really a WONDERFUL fun and adventure.

      In my age now (almost 48) I would love to travel though but main thing has lessen by the time which play backbone in this "the sense of enjoyment "

All the canals and big beautiful buildings are amazing! I know you must miss your son terribly, but I am glad that he will be coming home soon to see you. I hope you continue to feel better on your meds, and that the floors get finished quickly. It is always nice to have new floors when they are done! Hugs to you today dear friend :)

  38. I'm glad your son got to visit Amsterdam. You know, the girls visited Amsterdam many years ago on their trip to Europe. Your son took some interesting pictures. The canal is so calm and pretty, and I like that festive building decorated in presents! Glad he's doing ok away from home, Baili. Being his mother, I'm sure that's comforting to you.

  39. I love the photos of Amsterdam that your eldest son took, Baili. I was there in October 1962, and his photos brought back many memories for me, especially the lovely canals in the misty light. It's challenging to take night photos with an iPhone. I wish mine turned out as well as your son's! the photo of the little girl painting is brilliant! Hugs to you, my friend!
