This week in next I’m taking a mini-vacation from blog article writing, and concentrating on just presenting photos of Amsterdam, Netherlands this week and next and Copenhagen, Denmark the following week.

At any rate, I hope you enjoy the show:

Amsterdam Photo Tour — Part 1


I’ve been blogging articles a minimum of thrice weekly since January 3, 2011, so it’s time to take a break before beginning in earnest our next trip, which Ursula and I took August-September, 2017. That trip began with a flight to Amsterdam, Netherlands, where we spent a few days, then continued on to Switzerland to visit the in-laws, followed by a flight to Copenhagen, Denmark. In Copenhagen we spent a day visiting familiar sights before  catching a cruise ship for back-to-back cruises that would take us through the Baltic region and Scandinavia before continuing on the second cruise across the Atlantic with stops in Iceland and St. John’s, Newfoundland.

As such, for the next two weeks I’ll be presenting with minimal text select photos of our August, 2017 visit to Amsterdam, followed by a week of Copenhagen photographs. After that, we’ll begin our journey in earnest with stops to Riga, Latvia; Tallinn, Estonia; St. Petersburg, Russia (where we toured for two days); Helsinki, Finland; Stockholm, Sweden; Klaipeda, Lithuania; Gdansk, Poland; Skagen, Denmark; Kristiansand, Norway; Stavanger, Norway, Invergordon and Inverness, Scotland; Reykjavik, Akureyri, and a visit into the countryside of Iceland; winding up in St. John’s.

So, four weeks from today watch for our Baltic-transatlantic trip aboard Royal Caribbean’s Vision of the Seas. Until then, please enjoy two weeks’ worth of Amsterdam and another week of Copenhagen photos:
