From Julia in Amsterdam

Julia's bike on moving day - getting around Amsterdam

4th August 2017

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?


Julia’s is just one of the postcards we have received! You can read them all here.
