Brunching in Vondelpark


I don't know what it is about Amsterdam, but people seem more laid back, at ease and just so damn happy - in a rather understated way. I guess it must be a lifestyle. This may have been just me but it also seem very family oriented in all that they do. From seeing little family units biking around the city for leisure or on their way to work or school drop to family walks,  family gatherings in cafes and for the sake of enjoying each others company. As  vital as visiting the canals or the many museums in the city, a stop to Vondel Park is another must. We couldn't help but stroll through Vondel Park. 


When in the capital, do as locals do! Rent a bike to explore the expansive land or just take a stroll around . Especially in good weather this is a great place to meet friends for a picnic or just some alone time and just chill with a book. It also helps that there are  a few cafes dotted around so that you can take your time to have mini breaks in between exploring. Thats exactly what we did! Below are some of the shots from explorations and many tea-drinking sessions in the park.

Note that you can also rent bikes from within the park. The rentals are close to the entrances.

  2. Looks like fun! I was there in chilly weather as well, but a friend in Amsterdam mentioned that during summer you can rent boats in Vondel to cruise around the canals for a bit - seemed like a pretty chill way to see the city as well.

    When I was in Amsterdam the lakes in Vondelpark were frozen and it was damn cold. I hope to come back one day with more summery weather, the city is so alluring!
