One of my favourite things to do in Amsterdam, when the weather is good, is to pack a meal and a bottle of wine and head for the Amstel River. There’s a certain spot I love where I can sit on the edge of the river, hang my legs over the edge and watch the boats pass by. I sometimes quack back at the ducks and before I know it, I’m engaged in an animated conversation with them – it must be quite a sight for those walking by. Boats come and go, filled with locals who are always in for a chat. I enjoy watching the ducks bob up and down with the waves and feeling the water wash over my feet each time a boat sails past. And when the sun sets, the river turns to a shimmering gold. It’s an absolutely magical spot to simply chill, people-watch, join in the banter and admire a stunning sunset. A true Velvet Moment in Amsterdam!
