Double Dutch: Kinderdijk and Amsterdam

DSCF3127

Windmills, canals, tulips, cheese and wooden shoes. Add one or two more other items and you’ve pretty much get the picture what Holland is about. Or at least from a touristic point of view. 🙂

When friends and family that live abroad come over for a visit, we do our best to keep that reputation alive. So when Éva came to visit, we decided to combine Kinderdijk and Amsterdam in one day. A speed course of what The Netherlands is about so to speak. 🙂

First Kinderdijk. Once again we were back. Enjoying a walk and watching windmills.

It was halfway the afternoon already when we arrived in Amsterdam. We only did a quick tour walking from the Stopera to the Dam Square and back. The Stopera is a building that houses both the city hall of Amsterdam and the Dutch National Opera & Ballet. The name is a combination of two words. Stadhuis (city hall) and opera.

I have to disappoint you if you’re expecting photo’s of tulips, cheese and clogs here now. Don’t worry though, I didn’t leave the canals out. 🙂

Saturday was gone. Sunday would bring us to Antwerp, Belgium. Expect chocolate, fries and beer in the next post. Or maybe none of that. 🙂
