Today I visited Haarlem and the Hague/ Den Haag. The Netherlands is a small country, therefore it is not difficult to traverse the country with their highly efficient railroad system.
Haarlem is one of the most beautiful cities, 15 min from Amsterdam by train. Everything there evoked a sense of antiquity and beauty. The buildings are very well maintained and there is not as much tourists as in Amsterdam. The Hague is where the Netherlands's government is officially located. I remembered it was where a great philosopher Spinoza lived, and is where the International War Crime Tribunal is located. I will avoid filling up the space with words and just let the pictures speak for themselves.
Hi all, welcome to my travelblog. I will soon venture out from my nest in Toronto, Canada and embark on a journey to Europe- The Netherlands, Italy, and Spain for 4 weeks, then I will continue in South America- Argentina, Peru (and maybe Chile and Uruguay) for 7 weeks. In this blog, I shall provide you with a slice of my experiences as I travel across the continents.
There are many places I would like to see, many things I would like to do and many people I would like to meet. I am sure this will be an exciting and exhilarating tour.
It will all start, on July 13, 2009....stay tuned. ... full info
