Written and illustrated by Pascal Jappy, husband of a tall Dutch karate black-belt woman and son in law of a 6″3 Dutch sailor, Insight: Amsterdam reflects his love for this unique city and the fear of being beaten to a pulp if the guide misrepresents it ! When you buy it, please comment positively on it for his sake 😉

More seriously, here are 4 walks – no make that 8, because each is killer long and packed with content – that have been layed out to capture a great variety of subjects (old, modern, rich, poor, famous, secret …) and lighting conditions (night, day, in the sun, backlit, from down low and up the top of this flat world). Make no mistake, Amsterdam will drain your legs, cards and batteries. It is so endlessly beatiful on camera that you will never want to stop walking.

And, because Pascal is know as a stomach on legs, his guide also takes you to the world’s best apple tart cafe, an exquisite treat after a long walk with your gear.


What’s inside ?

Along with introductory text, each walk comes with directions in the form of a street guide as well as walk suggestions.

  • The historic center of grachtengordel, providing a selection of the most photographic areas and back alleys
  • The ambitious and daring developments of the Norther parts of the city. Artificial islands, modern architecture, water everywhere
  • A selection of tourist traps with huge photographic potential and the nearby places no-one visits
  • A selection of areas for colourful nigh-time photography

So, enjoy beautiful Amsterdam, be creative and have fun !
