The Netherlands

Posted in Travel on Monday, August 9th, 2010 at 4:56 pm 2 Comments

The Netherlands is a great country with so much to offer.  Though the country is flat with hardly a hill in sight, it boasts beautiful landscapes adorned with windmills, canals, and tulip fields.  Windmills and tulip fields are scattered everywhere and if you visit at the right time of year (April-May), you can witness the blooming of the tulips.  The cities are spectacular and the Dutch do a great job in preserving the old buildings while constructing modern ones.  Rotterdam is a great example of contemporary architecture at its finest and the cubicle houses with the pencil shaped tower adds an interesting skyline to the city.  It is one of the busiest ports in the world.  Amsterdam, with its 1,280 bridges connecting a maze of canals, is filled with great museums and coffee shops.  Take a stroll through the Red Light district to witness one of the oldest professions, just be careful not to get caught taking pictures.  This country has plenty to offer to the locals and tourists alike.  I am currently living here with my partner and I’m already adapting.  My Dutch is getting better.  Tot ziens!01-Holland-Travel-Photography-Windmill 02-Tulip-fields-Holland-Travel-Photography 03-Windmills-Holland-Netherlands-Travel-Photography 04-Kinderdijk-windmills-Holland-Travel-Photography 05-Amsterdam-Travel-Photography 06-Windmill-Netherlands-Holland-Travel-Photography 07-Tulip-flower-fields-Holland-Travel-Photography 08-Castle-Heeswijk-Kasteel-Holland 09-cheese-Holland-Travel-Photography 10-Den-Bosch-Travel-Photography 11-Flowers-Holland-Netherlands-Travel-Photography 12-canals-Holland-Netherlands-Travel-Photography 13-Amsterdam-Holland-Travel-Photography 14-Tulips-Holland-Netherlands-Travel-Photography 15-Delft-Holland-Travel-Photography 16-Rotterdam-Travel-Photography 17-Rotterdam-Holland-Travel-Photography 18-Red-Light-District-Amsterdam

  1. Hi!
    I love these pictures. Though, I’m a little shocked. I’m from the Netherlands myself and I understand why you took these specific pictures, but that wasn’t all you saw in the Netherlands did you? Because now I’m worried of what our country showed you.

  2. I love that first picture. I think I found your old website a while back and we had some emails sent back and forth, but I could be mistaken.
