Solo. Backpacking. Wanderlust.
Windmills, Bicycles and Canals. This was the essence of Holland for me. In 5 days, I tried to extract and live as much as I can in this beautiful part of the world. I spent a lot of time researching on reddit, youtube(rick stevens) and gazillion other blogs, before finalizing my 5 day itinerary.
Being a non-smoker and non-drinker, and knowing nothing about Art, one thing was pretty clear in my mind, I was only going to devote 1 of my precious 5 days to Amsterdam city sight seeing. In case you aren't aware, this is because Amsterdam is full of Art museums, cafes(weed/smoking joints) and Heinekens, which is where many people end up spending majority of their time in.
I am a landscape and nature lover. I love quaint places. I wanted to just roam around soaking the dutch architecture. Here's my 5 days itienerary:
Day 1(Jan 14)
The day of visiting a quaint place.
Just 25 kms(and 2 buses away) is the most beautiful castle in Netherlands. Kasteel Muiderslot.
Entry Fee: 13 Euros . Also make sure you check the opening times and days before you visit. I almost missed visiting this as initially I had planned to do it on a weekday.
