Gali, Seth in clogs
This weekend was one of the highlights of my exchange.
Gali and I traveled to Leiden and to the Keukenhof.
As many of you know, Holland is famous for its Tulips and its Windmills. This trip consisted of both of them.
Leiden is a small city in the south of the Netherlands.
As you walk from the train station to the center, you pass Leiden’s windmill.
We went inside and climbed to the top, learning about the different windmills and the development of the windmill. From the top there is a magnificent view over parts of Leiden.
The old area is made up of small streets and canals with tiny shops throughout. Walking through the streets is very scenic, romantic and relaxing. We ate lunch in a citadel at the top of a little hill in the center of town.
Not far from Leiden is the Keukenhof.
The Keukenhof is the world's largest flower garden where over 7,000,000 bulbs are planted every year. Its nickname is the "Garden of Europe".
It was beautiful.
A must see for anyone traveling through Holland.
