Julia’s #postcard from Amsterdam

Julia's bike on moving day - getting around Amsterdam

We asked #britsinEurope to send us a postcard from where they live that captures what the place they live means to them. Julia in Rotterdam sent us this great photo!

I wanted so much to share an elegant picture, but this is what it means to me to live in Amsterdam:  Being practical (and being on two wheels). This is from the day we moved into our newly purchased apartment, a slightly damp November morning –  I went ahead to move the essentials:  laptop, toilet roll, sushi, gratuitous firefighters calendar.  Inspired by the daily sight of pragmatic commuters with oddly laden bikes, I love how this answers all my UK car driving friends main question who can’t comprehend travelling everywhere by bike:  What do you do if you can’t fit everything in your basket?
