On my trip to Europe, the least that I had expected was from Netherlands. It was like the least of all the lands for me, honestly. But I must say, Netherlands, did not fail to surprise me with its beautiful sights of tulip gardens, fishing villages, cheese factories and the wide spread farms with Jersey cows, all over. I cannot even begin to tell how beautiful these sites were.
When I arrived in Netherlands, the country was drenched in rains. It was drizzling all over; yet, it contrived to look as alluring as it would when the sun was out.
The windmills of Netherlands are one of the prime focuses in Netherlands tourism. They have these amazing, huge, ancient windmills which serve as a splendid backdrop for a family photo. Also, Madurodum Miniature Park and cheese factory is worth a visit.
Amsterdam, the legal city for all things illegal, also has to its fame, some beautiful places. To discover Amsterdam in a novel manner, we took a cruise along the canals. It’s for sure the best way to see this captivating city. They have more than 30 tunnels through that channel. They also have house boats in these canals where people live. It was pretty amazing to see that.
Amsterdam has its own charm when it comes to diversity. The crowd here is extremely vibrant inheriting mostly the young generation. It’s curious to see people in their own world walking through the streets, coming up with the weirdest ways of shielding themselves from the rains. And I am not joking, they really are very cool when it comes to this.
I was impressed that most people use bicycles for transport. In fact, I was impressed to see a well-suited man (presumably, working in some good company) riding on his way to office. He had his briefcase in his carriage and the umbrella was neatly fixed to cover him under its dome. So, it worked quite well for him.
I was bemused to see people doing these strange things to sort it out for themselves.
Netherlands, thus, for me, was a huge thumbs up. It’s a breathtakingly beautiful country, which has a beautiful culture, splendid landscapes, great food especially, cheese and great people!
