In case you haven’t noticed, I’m on Instagram a lot. Rather than feel like I have to catch up on so much blogging backlog, I love posting quick updates on Instagram.
Instagramsterdam is a new blog series rounding up my favorite Instagram posts of the month about Amsterdam. For me, it’s a way to appreciate the little things I enjoy about living in Amsterdam, and to embrace my adopted city a little bit more.
For you, it’s a way to see glimpses of daily life in Amsterdam—hopefully, to get to know the city the way I know it, and see that it’s so much more than the tired stereotype of weed and wooden shoes. I also want to introduce you to some of my favorite Instagrammers from Amsterdam and beyond.
I didn’t spend much of July in Amsterdam, but there were some beautiful moments nevertheless.
July was all about blue skies and fluffy clouds, a rarity in this land of overcast and gray; yummy, summery meals at the Neighbourfood Market; stolen moments to lie in the grass and read a few pages of a new book; rediscovering the city on my new bicycle (it’s that orange one in the foreground!); finding a new place to work on the water; and simply enjoying being home after a long trip.
Now August begins, the last month of this wonderful summer we’re having. Let’s make the most of it.
