Rotterdam’s markets are amazing & definitely worth a visit! Head to Markthal hungry – there are four floors of food. The best way to visit is to try a bite from different stalls in a make-your-own foodie tour.

Villa Augusta’s service was very hit or miss the day I visited – food took forever to come out! But the view of the amazing garden & hotel was worth the wait. Grab a cheap glass of rose (or two) & enjoy the nice weather.

Tulips & Holland go hand in hand. Don’t want to carry them around the country? Bulbs & fresh cut tulips can be bought right at the airport. Can you imagine, though, sitting on an 8 hour flight with a bouquet of flowers on your lap?

I love getting out into national parks when I travel. The best part of Holland’s are the electric boats that are easy to navigate.

    Holland is an astonishing destination, Christina! I’ve lived there for 2 years and it is probably the most beautiful place on Earth!
