Christian and I took advantage of last week’s holiday to visit the Netherlands for a long weekend. We spent our first day touring Amsterdam.
There are more canals in Amsterdam than Venice.
Anne Frank House & the line to tour the house!
The next day we traveled to Delft, which is known for their blue earthenware called Delftware. I was very excited to visit and wasn’t too interested in the actual town and instead wanted to visit Royal Delft, where they make the Delftware.
My usual touring outfit: down jacket and rain jacket on top!
Johannes Vermeer (Girl with A Pearl Earring) lived & worked in Delft.
Finally! After drooling over the Delftware, we visited Den Haag.
Day 3: Ferry ride from Den Helder to the island of Texel. We rented a tandem bike and rode from the southern end to the northern end of the island in the rain! It wasn’t that pleasant of an experience.
We started out happy & dry!
Then came the rain…
On our last day of touring, we visited the windmills in Kinderdijk.
Yay for long weekends!
