On the Road is a weekday feature spotlighting reader photo submissions. From the exotic to the familiar, whether you’re traveling or in your own backyard, we would love to see the world through your eyes.
On the Road will continue, but it will be forever Alain’s.
Good Morning All,
This weekday feature is for Juicers who are are on the road, traveling, or just want to share a little bit of their world via stories and pictures. So many of us rise each morning, eager for something beautiful, inspiring, amazing, subtle, of note, and our community delivers – a view into their world, whether they’re far away or close to home – pictures with a story, with context, with meaning, sometimes just beauty. By concentrating travel updates and tips here, it’s easier for all of us to keep up or find them later.
So please, speak up and share some of your adventures and travel news here, and submit your pictures using our speedy, secure form. You can submit up to 7 pictures at a time, with an overall description and one for each picture.
You can, of course, send an email with pictures if the form gives you trouble, or if you are trying to submit something special, like a zipped archive or a movie. If your pictures are already hosted online, then please email the links with your descriptions.
For each picture, it’s best to provide your commenter screenname, description, where it was taken, and date. It’s tough to keep everyone’s email address and screenname straight, so don’t assume that I remember it “from last time”. More and more, the first photo before the fold will be from a commenter, so making it easy to locate the screenname when I’ve found a compelling photo is crucial.
Have a wonderful day, and enjoy the pictures!
I had trouble with otmar’s post, so we have these wonderful alternatives! Jerzy has submitted more, so this is part one.
Today, pictures from valued commenter Jerzy Russian.
Went on a trip to Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, and The Netherlands during the summer of 2017. In this contribution I wish to share some pictures taken during visits to two of the smaller museums in Amsterdam. The first stop was Katten Kabinet, which is a small museum dedicated to art that images of cats. It occupied a few floors of a modest sized house, plus a back yard. The pictures shown are from the yard. The second stop was the Amsterdam Tulip Museum, which, as one might guess, is a museum dedicated to the bulb trade in The Netherlands. There were lots of interesting displays about the history of the tulip trade, and lots of cool photographs of bulb fields. The actual bulb fields were not in bloom during our visit, so this was the next best thing.

In addition to all of the paintings and posters with pictures of cats, they also have real cats in residence.
Here is a poster of some kind of liquor ad that features cats.

Here is the outside of the Tulip Museum, which is not far from the Anne Frank House.
Some pictures of pictures of tulips.
And still more tulips.
Thank you so much Jerzy Russian, do send us more when you can.
Travel safely everybody, and do share some stories in the comments, even if you’re joining the conversation late. Many folks confide that they go back and read old threads, one reason these are available on the Quick Links menu.
