Travels #1

gennaio 12, 2009

The Netherlands is famous for numerous things: cheese, tulips, bikes, marijuana, red light districts…

Specially in Italy, people think that Netherlands is an Eden because of the coffee shops and the legal prostitution, but during these five months I discovered that Netherlands is more than these superficial things.
In my opinion, The Netherlands is a special Country, inhabited by friendly and open minded people.

Big and smiley windows seem to say “you are welcome”, little houses on two floors could surprise you, nineteen wind mills on a river leave you breathless, Amsterdam by night is

Strange thing

amazing, everywhere strange little thing could always make you smile.

The Netherlands is little and it‘s easy to make cheap trips in few time, by train or by car. I travelled a lot in all the Country (I miss only the North) and every city is awesome.
The tour to west was a good way to let us know something about the habits and to see some characteristic place.
Den Haag is indescribable with the Parliament on the water and lots of fantastic towers.
Delft is little and particular, everywhere you can find blue and white hand-thrown souvenirs: tulips, wind mills, children…
But the best is Gouda. A cute small town where we made our own candles. That day there was a street market in the main square; it was perfect because I love street market and also because there was the sun all the day.

A part of this, I was also in Utrecht, Amsterdam and Maastricht.
Amsterdam is the most amazing city I’ve ever seen in my life. I’ll leave a little piece of my heart in Amsterdam, for ever.

Utrecht is really cute, I think is like a little Amsterdam, but more quiet, with lots of students.ù

Maastricht…is strange. Everybody told me is wonderful, but I was there in Christmas time and I didn’t like so much. It’s nice, but in my opinion is too commercial, with too much shops.

In sum, I’m in love with The Netherlands.
