Viking River Cruise, Day 1: Amsterdam (Facebook collage)
However, we knew we'd have the afternoon to go see something we hadn't yet seen: the Python Bridge, built in 2001.
See those 3 longships in the top image? The middle, white one is the Viking Idun, our ship.
If you're familiar with the Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ sitting in the water, with its long entrance ramp,
we were docked just a stone's throw away.
It made a good photo op for our first impressions before sailing.
It was a one-hour slow walk from the boat to the Python Bridge,
passing many photo ops. You know me and architecture, right?
This Python Bridge is a 300-ft. pedestrian bridge, built in 2001,
linking Amsterdam's Sporenburg area with Borneo Island.
It won the International Footbridge Award in 2002.
It was a nice way to start our river cruise, seeing something new in Amsterdam!

My goal is to keep posting each cruise day as soon as I have the images ready (instead of my usual once-a-week posting). So, chalk up the first and easiest day of our cruise! :)
