Just look the Netherlands ! I have been here to kinderdijk and just loved it, they offer a boat ride and you travel down the water way and get to see all of these wonderful windmills. Scenic setting in Kinderdijk, Netherlands
Lust for Life by Irving Stone -- Wonderful novelized biography of Vincent Van Gogh. Irving Stone based this on the massive set of Van Gogh's "Complete Letters," and evinces Van Gogh's talent and torment convincingly and evocatively.
