It’s that time of year again…

Queen’s Day 2012 (Koninginnedag) is fast approaching and while we get excited about drinking beer in a sea of orange, here are some of the sights we witnessed last year…

For €10 who can resist?!

Not a good day for a jog

Canal is starting to get busy now...

Yes, they are sitting on a floating picnic table.

Room for one more? No.

On Queen's Day, the canals can be busier than the roads

  1. Looks like fun. It has been a long time since I was in Amsterdam. I must visit again. Question – what is the significance of orange? (Love the colour!)

    • Thanks for your comment! Well, the whole orange thing (the national football team also plays in orange) comes from William of Orange ruling over holland a great many years ago, and the royal family is still the House of Orange. And as Koninginnedag celebrates the Queen’s birthday, orange seems appropriate!
