Quintessential Holland

1. Water

The Netherlands are known for their canals. The cities have mastered the art of boat taxis, bridges, and reflections. Canals wind and turn through Rotterdam shaping the city into the world it is today.

2. Tulips

A trip to Holland wouldn’t be complete without tulips. I remember in college one of my professors spending an entire lecture on the tulip and how it molded early modern shipping and agriculture. These fields are not as large as the ones found in northern Holland, but they were beautiful none the less.

3. Bicycles

They lined the sidewalks, railings, and light posts. Cyclists and bikers (vroom vroom) even have their own lanes on the sidewalk! There is a place for cars, a place for walkers, and then a very proper with lights and everything place for people on two wheels!!

4. Quirkiness

The Netherlands are infamous for various types of inspiration and art! Check out these apartments! They are literally cubed houses. As we were walking through the complex, I couldn’t help but wonder how vases and picture frames didn’t topple out the windows.

5. Beautiful

Rotterdam was stunning. From the reflections on the water to the tulips to the sunshine, it was all beautiful. Something magical happened that day. It was the perfect combination of everything that I needed to rejuvenate myself. Thank you Holland for being so beautifully made!

I quit my job, broke up with my boy friend, and moved to Ireland. I am an American living in Dublin suffering from a lack of Taco Bell and Target, but loving everyday. My hope and dream is to become a professional travel writer; I am in the process of getting my writing out to the world. Currently, I have been to 9 European countries and over 20 States. My visa is good in Ireland until the end of September, and I have several more travel adventures planned through the rest of this year. Follow me to hear about my awkward adventures! :)
