A trip in the countryside

A fine, sunny day! Imagine a Brisbane winter day: bright, sunny, cool in the morning and warm during the day – that’s what it was like today as I headed out on a tour in the countryside to see the canals, the windmills, the clog maker and the cheese factory. Volendam and Marken – both interesting places showing the culture of Holland.

When I returned to the hotel, my friend Chris had arrived so we went out for a coffee and more people watching while we caught up on all our news. We cruised the canals, dodged the bikes, walked the streets around the hotel and had dinner at a tapas restaurant. The canal cruise provided a different perspective of the city, showing how the culture revolves around the waterways. A very pleasant afternoon and evening.

We have purchased our train tickets for Rotterdam and packed ready for the morning. The cruise leaves Rotterdam at 4.00pm. Very exciting.

I’ve enjoyed this sojourn in Amsterdam. A vibrant, diverse city with an amazing history and culture. I’ll post some photos in the next few days.
