If your'e planning to visit the Netherlands, be sure to also visit the Zaanse Schans. We came here by bus, from Amsterdam and it is definitely worth spending half a day here (or more). Recommended!

Dat ik hier nog nooit was geweest! Erg leuk om zo deze Nederlandse cultuur te ontdekken. Erg veel toeristen, maar voor mij niet zo’n heel groot probleem.
