Velvet moment: travel photo – sunset in Amsterdam

This spot on the banks of the Amstel River at Café Hesp (map) is one of my favourite places in Amsterdam to simply chill. Nothing better than just sitting with my legs dangling over the edge of the promenade, with some friends, wine and a few bites to eat, and watching people and boats pass by, along with the occasional ducks and swans. And you get to see a spectacular sunset in Amsterdam from here!

    Sitting by the Amstel River with an Amstel in my hand watching the sun set – I hope to be in this situation next summer in Amsterdam!
