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.
Hanging out near the Fenix Food Factory but want a site down meal? Head across the street to the cutest blue & white restaurant anywhere in Holland!
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?
Stroopwaffel tastes nothing like its American counterpart – & that’s a very good thing.
Make sure to get out of the city & explore the countryside – it’s beautiful & very accessible!
Dordrecht is the perfect place for wandering & getting lost. I think we were the only Americans there!
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.
Don’t skip Rotterdam! There’s so much more to Holland than Amsterdam.
