When most people think of the Netherlands, they think of Amsterdam’s “coffee” shoops and red light districts. But there is much more to the country than those, starting with history, tulips and beautiful mills.
Most travelers who come to Netherlands are there because of the parties and don’t really explore more than that, which is sad because Netherlands is a country filled with lots of interconnected canals, cute windmills, beautiful and vast farmland and even some cozy villages, not to forget extremely beautiful people. Seriously, everybody there is tall, skinny and kind. It’s one of my favorite countries in the world. Sure, Amsterdam is a place to be, has a lot of offer but if you go just 30 minutes Amsterdam you will see Netherlands with totally different eyes. As we were with a car, it was quite easy to visit almost the whole country (which is actually not really so big).
After Kaukenhof we have visited Amsterdam, hard to believe but from four times I was here, I have never tried special cakes etc, but it is in my list. If you’re like me, not really into those stuff a simple walk around the city will do, as it’s full of historical secret and beautiful architecture.
