The Netherlands

DSC04541


I went to Amsterdam from Brussels, and in Brussels it was pretty cold, but when I arrived in Amsterdam, the weather was surprisingly hot. But I was glad to see the blue sky and I think it's so much better than the rainy weather in Paris.

The first stop was Zaanse Schans. I saw a lot of windmills there and that place was too beautiful!!

And in the afternoon I went to Volendam, and I found small but beautiful houses there and most people who live there are the oldies. (around 60 years old and above I guess.) I think it's the perfect place for them to live there. The atmosphere was so peaceful and in front of their houses you can see a beautiful sea!

The red house that you can see in the picture is a photo studio where we can wear holland's traditional clothes! And I was shocked to see lots of Indonesian tourists' photos hanging on the wall including some of our ministers and the people who work in the government. So yeah I guess they went to Holland to work and also holiday.. hahaha *cough*

My sister recommended Volendam's fish & chips and it was delicious!! Especially the fried crabstick!

This is the view from the canal cruise in Amsterdam. At that time, it was the hottest time of the day until some Indonesians had to carry their umbrella to prevent the sun-burn! *I'm sorry I don't want to get tanned* . It distracted us to enjoy the scenery :(

On the second day, I went to Floriade World Horticultural Expo in Venlo. The Keukenhof Garden was already closed when I was in Netherlands. Floriade Expo itself exhibits flowers and plants.

Most people who went to Floriade were the oldies (again) and it was freaking hot (again). And that made me couldn't visit the whole exhibition. It was too huge, too tiring, and too hot -_-. *sigh* .
I had a short conversation with a dutch at the cafeteria and he said few days before that day the weather was cold and suddenly it changed drastically -_-. He also thought I was a Filipino. -_-. Sir, why no Korean??? xP

  3. Looks like you had a great trip! I live in Holland and most people say that the Floriade is very expensive and boring, but I still want to go ghehe. What did you think of it? Oh and Volendam is a reaaally touristic place here, never been there! A lot of famous Dutch artists live over there! (but I don't like them, ghehe)
    lots of love, Janine

  6. aah, you must be happy to be home now, the weather here is now so freaking bad :|. I think Keukenhof is so much better than Floriade. At least I have seen pictures of it, because my mom went to Keukenhof with some family from Hong Kong.
