Dam, 1012 JS Amsterdam, Netherlands
The last night in Amsterdam we are walking near Dam Square. We have been to the Van Gogh Museum earlier and are still marveling at his brilliance. I take two photos nearby and then this one which somehow transforms into a Van Gogh styled image, by...

1071 Amsterdam, Netherlands
Amsterdam does playgrounds right. Witness: the triple swing. Unlike the anodyne, paranoia-driven parks of the United States, these playgrounds are meant to make kids dirty and proud. Water flows into sand and dirt freely. Rickety wooden play...

Hötorget, 111 57 Stockholm, Sweden
Whenever I hit the center of town, I usually swing by Hötorget (Haymarket Square) to take in rows and rows of vividly colored fresh fruit and vegetables. And on days when I feel like breaking into my tiny savings account, I opt for one or two...

Stadsgården 6, 104 65 Stockholm, Sweden
I love aerial views of cites; it allows you to see the city as a whole and I find it incredibly beautiful from above. I found a place where you can walk across a platform and have a great view of Old Town Stockholm. It is free and there is even a...
