Out and about....the Dam and beyond

From Fashionistable
Rachel is a student at the fashion institute in Amsterdam. She has just started her 6 month internship with SuperTrash. Her style influence is the 60's and 70's she likes to mix vintage with new. Rachel's favourite place in Amsterdam is the Vondel Park (in the summer). She likes to travel. Her favourite kind of travel is backpacking and is happy walking all day long. You can see it is raining in the shot. One of the amazing things about Amsterdam is the attitude to the weather. Although they have more or less the same weather as the UK when it starts raining they don't run for cover like us they just get on with it. Only if it is too windy will they leave their bikes behind and walk. Rachel is wearing an Acne jacket, SuperTrash jeans, Marc Jacobs shoes and is carrying a Stella McCartney bag.

Before I leave the Dam I would like to share some other sights from there and beyond with you.

Twe Kanefas Bale 1632 - This was the sign over the the door to our apartment. I don't think I have ever lived anywhere so old before. Twe Kanefas Bale means 2 canvas bales, this is about as much info as I have managed to find out about it.

Beautiful morning light - the arches are lit only by the sun. Sometimes you are just given gifts.

This is the same bridge from the other side.

Beyond the Dam -
On our way home we stopped at the fairytale Kasteel de Haar. There has been an a castle on this site since the 1300's however this is not the original as the castle has been destroyed and re-built several times. This is almost how it has looked since the 1600's however it fell into disrepair and refurbishment started again at the end of the 1800's. This newest magnificent refurb was completed in 1912.

Walking around the castle I noticed this not so graceful Swan. It checked out the water and then fell in head 1st. I couldn't stop laughing. It then redeemed itself with the beautiful display in the 3rd shot.

Thank you for sharing all those beautiful photos of Amsterdam! The glow of the morning sun under the bridge is just otherwoldly! What a gift to be walking by at the time. And I couldn't stop laughing at the goose of a swan you captured! It is so much like dancers -- ethereal on stage but I can't tell you how clutzy they/we are in daily life! xxx
