The home of tulips and windmills can be visited with several different eyes. You can concentrate on art and spend afternoons in front of Van Gogh’s masterpieces, or maybe you’ll prefer riding a bike along the canals. But only an artistic soul can deeply understand Amsterdam, and find special little aspects which tourists could never see. There is a picturesque breeze fluttering in some alleys, full of mystery and vintage stories to be told.
Little blossoms of daffodils and snowdrops open the dance. The botanical garden has a lot to show… if you know where to go. Floral spots of colours create a lovely atmosphere, which can be found even in the most hidden corner. An artist can find them in a minute: both seem to speak the same language.
And then, let’s have a look in the windows of small shops and ateliers. Even vegetables can be disposed in a charming way, ready for a film shooting. Those deep shades which spread their intense aroma carry everyone in a town of the past, where people cycled every morning to go buying some eggplants and carrots.
Flower pots, colorful plumcakes and bouquets of tulips: some postcards from Amsterdam which won’t be forgotten easily.
Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.
Vincent Van Gogh
