We like to share with you now few things to do in the Netherlands, so you will start to think why you’re not there yet.
Our Fried Lorna Zelunzuk just returned from a trip to the north of Holland. Visited Giethoorn which is a gorgeous village built on small islands. The only way to get around is by small boat down the canals, by bike or on foot. The beautiful gardens have motivated me to do a bit more work in my own garden.
Lorna also went to the Cheese Market at Alkmaar, Alkmaar is a city and municipality in the Netherlands, located in the province of North Holland. They’ve used the same process for years. First the cheeses are laid out, then the testers come to taste the cheeses, then theirs an ancient process they use to settle on the price, then the cheese is loaded onto ‘gondolas’ and carried to the weighing station and returned to where it was originally. Then the cheese is loaded in to wagons and taken away by the buyer. The men with the coloured hats dressed in white carry the cheese to the weighing station, the blue load the cheese on to the gondolas and the khaki shirts load the wagons.
And did you know the Dutch are the tallest people in the world? The average height for a man is 1.80 meters and for women 1.70 meters! Photo taken at the cheesy market in Alkmaar with Lorna Zelunzuk .
She also went to an annual festival called the ‘Oude Ombachten’ which simply means old crafts. The people honor their old traditions by showcasing all the things they did in the past, be it work tools, musical instruments, arts and craft and lots more. It is very interesting indeed. The locals enter a competition for the best display of their crafts. There are plenty of Dutch flags flying outside the town’s houses. You can tell that the Duch people really do love their country and life styles!
