Unique sights of Holland

Besides windmills and flowers, are there anything else Holland offers the traveler?

We had shared with you about the country’s castle strongholds. You would have seen a different Holland in its far south. Eating raw herring. Anything else? Why yes is the answer (of course, otherwise why would we write this – duh).

Because we save the ‘best’ for last in this series of posts about our discoveries while living in Holland for three years. Conclusion: it was too short!

Heard of stonehenge? Why there are many monolithic structures in Holland that dates back to an age that rivals its contemporaries on Brittania too. How can we forget about cheese…the Dutch have some well known ones. And they trade them in a ceremony that still continues till this day.

There are probably too many short short stories to tell of our beautiful lives during the short 3 years living in Holland. Such as how to boat on the canal, skate in winter or cycle around the countryside roads. But it was truly well spent. And if we had to live it all over again, we would not change a thing. Read all about it in the above link. It’s not the end, its the end of a beginning!

So this concludes our series on Holland. Watch out for the more stories from our journey to Taiwan in July this year, they are next!

    1. Indeed do that. Amsterdam is definitely a place to be, but it is very congested with tourists these days just like the other touristic cities. Getting outside is better, and there are just as many to see, perhaps more!

    1. Actually yes – Netherlands. But the people of the Holland provinces (of which there is a north and south) like to call it Holland – being centric as it is that Amsterdam is (located in north Holland province). But in Dutch it is ‘Nederland’…
