We loved the meals we ate in Leiden, Holland. It’s really great, and there are many restaurants to choose from. In the summer, you can eat outside along the confluence of the Nieuw Rijn (New Rhine) and the Oude Rijn (Old Rhine), or take a small cruise. What a beautiful place!
One of the things we wanted to do in The Netherlands is go to a beach, and we easily found our way to Zandvoort by bus. It was a great experience. We found a great restaurant and a lot of interesting activities on the beach, as you will see below.
The food in Amsterdam is outstanding. We saw so many different types of pastries, but the savory food is great too with meats, fish, soups, stews and pastas. Here’s a sampling of some of the foods we came across:
Now you see another reason why we love Amsterdam so much!
The next stop on our tour of Christmas markets last year was Baden-Baden, Germany. This was a really special market place.
Just beyond the market was a unique display of artwork that was gorgeous.
Once again, the food got our attention, but not only the food, the restaurant itself. It was an enclosed porch of a beautiful hotel, but cold enough that they provided blankets at each chair. So nice and cozy with warm cider!
