Our enjoyable stroll through Amsterdam

Joan and I spent a wonderful clear day in Amsterdam on Saturday. We had a great time and were relieved to have such splendid weather. The day before, while we were in Utrecht, it had rained the entire day. Saturday started out a little drizzly too, but by the time we reached Amsterdam the weather had cleared and the sun was breaking from the clouds.

Joan is an art history buff and the museums are always on our agenda. We have visited Amsterdam several times in the past because my family, on my mother’s side, is from Holland. This time, though, other than the Van Gogh museum we didn’t really have any other plans and spent the day walking through the city. It was great because we got to see several sites we usually do not come across.

One of those sites was “The American Bookstore”. It was a delight exploring the bookstore and we found two books I was interested in “The Dip” by Seth Godin and “The Disorganized Mind” by Nancy Ratey

It was quite an unexpected delight coming across Nancy’s book because I was just talking to her this last week. Her book is a vital benefit to the ADDer community and I will be reviewing it here in the next couple days for you. I am sure she will be delighted to know I found it in Amsterdam of all places. That was indeed a fortuitous experience finding this book store for the first time and Nancy’s book! In a previous post I mentioned that I had found another one of Seth’s books in Frankfurt Germany, so this might be becoming a fortunate habit.

Here are a few more photos from our enchanting trip:
