||North Sea Route
||All along the North Sea route was essence of the Netherlands - the determination of Dutch people to take the land away from the sea can been seen all along this route
||Vermeer at Mauritzhuis in The Hague
||The light on Vermeer paintings is just incredible. And the topics are from the everyday life. The real masterpieces.
||De Weerribben National Park
||Cycling through the De Weerribben national park is rather like cycling through an enormous Disney set. Mile after mile of charming and pristine cottages line canals. Hundreds of barges and pleasure boats go about their business.
|Best Place to Stay
TimeOut in Breda
Hunting Lodge in Leusveld
We had a tie and two places were equally the best.
TimeOut was in an idyllic setting with ducks on a pond, very nice garden. The owners were very helpful and the breakfasts were divine.
In the Hunting Lodge the owners were artists, the quality of the lodge and the atmosphere were incredible.
||De Lindenhof in Giethoorn
||The food and the service were unsurpassed, should have 3 Michelin stars, not just 2
