My excuse for not doing it this year is that I've just had a new book launched one week aga and that my domestic situation is more challenging than last year in that I'm surrounded by more family on a daily basis including a 2 and 1/2 year old and a new baby of 13 days.
Instead I'll just be posting something every day, but without linking to the challenge.
A is for Amsterdam
Amsterdam features a lot in my ancestral based mystery thriller Topaz Eyes. It's a city I love to visit and have special fond memories of since I lived within a bus ride of the city for a while. I trawled the museums of which there are many and walked the legs off me along the many canal bordered streets, preferring Shank's Pony to any other transport.
I rode a bike around the two villages I lived in but never in Amsterdam.
I always found the architecture fascinating, no matter the street becasue there were so many amazing houses all cheek and jowl and so different to look at when studied closely.
This corner of Browersgrach features in Topaz Eyes and I particularly walked my husband here to this spot in 2013 so that I could take some photos here.
Amsterdam is a place to enjoy!
