Amsterdam - went to see all the tulips at Keukenhof gardens, toured the Anne Frank House and Heineken factory, etc. Amsterdam was the city I loved the most and didn't expect it. So beautiful with the friendliest people! places-i-ve-been
Giethoorn is a village in the Netherlands, dubbed the Dreamhouse "Venice of the North". The village has no motor-able roads, and all transport is done by water over one of the many intersecting canals.
Dutch tradition: "BESCHUIT MET MUISJES: serving ‘beschuit met muisjes’ (Dutch biscuit with little aniseed balls) to celebrate the birth of a baby. Rose for a girl, blue for a boy." I can get the beschuit here, but my sister has to send me the "muisjes".
