Photos from a recent trip to the Netherlands.

I’ve had to make frequent trips to Amsterdam in recent years, in a professional capacity, and have previously spent some time in Rotterdam, but hadn’t seen much of the country beyond these principle cities.

As we already knew, it’s flat, but and therein lies a lot of its appeal, with big skies and water everywhere. A lot of effort goes into keeping the sea at bay, and the lines are frequently blurred between where the land ends and the sea begins; and there are a lot of bicycles.

It was also good to see ex-Intro colleague Jan Willem and his family, in Amsterdam. The view down to the lone bicycle was taken from his apartment.
