I went travelling for a week around the Netherlands. Two words to describe it …hot and flat. I enjoyed my time there, got to cover most of the places we wanted to (Amsterdam, Den Haag, Leiden, Katvjk and Rijnsburg). Bicycle and canal rides, dinners and swimming in the warm sea ensued!
Netherlands was quite beautiful, there’s beauty in nature and people all over the world. It’s nice to be reminded of that. But you better have your euros! It was the most expensive city I’ve been to so far (I’m a student, these things count).
Recommendations: get out of some of the tourist trappings. Personally I don’t think travelling is just to see what you want to see, but seeing and experiencing what is there. And that’s what I try to do.
